CSL Bumpers with 2 Intake holes for M3

I'm just wondering if anyone manufactures a CSL Bumper with 2 Intake holes for the E46 M3? Even tho the 2nd hole is useless for regular M3 engines, it looks more balanced. I like the Rieger CSL Front Bumper with 2 Intake holes, but it doesn't suppport Carbon Fiber splitters.

We have the Vorsteiner one:











We are proud to release our latest V-CSL Bumper for the E46 M3 Coupe/ Cabriolet.

The V-CSL Bumper comes with dual factory style fog light holders so that customers do not have to sacrifice the factory foglights while having the same aggressive V-CSL appereance.

Fog Light Holders are an additional $150 option and can be ordered immediately

i'm looking for a CSL bumper with no foglights, just 2 intake holes (1 on both sides). That Vorsteiner one that you're showing me looks more like an E46 M3 bumper with splitters on.

It is a little bit more similar to the M3 bumper than our traditional vorsteiner CSL bumper, but this bumper also allows you to use your fog lights, which also serve as brake ducts.

Sorry it wasn't exactly what you're looking for, but I don't know of any bumpers with the 2 intake holes that you're looking for, other than the Rieger one which you said you weren't interested in (that we also sell)

You could go OEM m3 bumper with hamann fog inserts and fill the brake duct side, and mold them in, and you will have 2 holes Just a thought...

yeah i could do that, but then that's extra work and added weight when i fill up the holes. I saw a guy on this forum custom fabricate one himself from a CSL bumper b/c he did an M5 engine swap so he needed that 2nd intake hole. I was hoping such a product existed since Rieger offers something similar to what i'm looking for. Oh well....

or you can get a Kitamo CSL front bumper and custom cut a hole on the opposite side.

either way, youre going to have to do some molding to get the holes.
and covering holes is definantly a lot easier to do than making them.
