I am assuming there are some pieces missing with this grill? I have seen some sights that sell the left and right portion, but it would still leave the holes at the very edge. Is there a kit to make this a single piece, or is this a bumper replacement type of thing. The M mesh looms to be all one piece, would that fit the M Sport?

Thanks.

This is what mine looks like. I also have the mesh around the fogs.

I beg to differ...

Jay's bumper is 1000% M5tech. It's an m5 style bumper with fogs.
The original poster is an mtech. The only similarity they have is that they both attach to an E60 body non-M5 car and require circular fogs (plus they reuse the OEM grills).

They are nothing alike otherwise. That invoice posted is incorrect, you were invoiced incorrectly Jay.

You are absolutely right! I did a little research and came to the same conclusion. :liar:

This is the bumper I bought...


...and they confirmed that it is an M5Tech.

Here are a few threads that discuss the issue: (old threads from the "other board")
