I was rearended Friday night, and I was thinking of putting an m-tech bumper on my completely stock '03 325i.

My question is this: will it look crappy on my car since its Titanium silver, complete with black door trim, trunk trim, etc.? I believe the m-tech bumper would be done completely in silver w/o the black trim.

Thanks.

Here's a pick of my M-Tech rear, though its not a sedan, I thought the pic might help you because my diffuser is also painted Ti Silver rather than leaving it black like the pics above. I think the MTech flows very nicely with stock sides and a stock front, and I only got the rear done because I was rear ended as well. Good luck.

Yeah, a lot of people have asked me for pics of my Mtech rear + stock sides, but I let someone borrow my digicam and haven't got it back yet, so as soon as I do I'll post more pics.

Mdowg,

Thanks for the compliments i am running stock sideskirt and stock bumper (not for long though) :) i am also planning to get RD tornado side skirts in the future.
Also i can't tell you how much lower i have on the car...
i raised and lowered a few times so i have no idea how low it is compared to stock...sorry.
I got the pss9 coilovers for my drop so you can go that route or even the pss cupkit. Although i have heard that the pss9 does not give you the slam look...many on this site prefers.
I can pm you my imagestation album if ur interested in looking at more pics.

take care

Its ur lucky day ;)

Here is the rear diffuser (black bottom part):
51-12-7-891-916

Rear Bumper:
51-12-7-893-298

You will also need the mounting brackets for
the mtech bumper and you will need to get the rear moldings (3 pieces)
for the mtech bumper. The stock 325i bumper moldings does not fit the mtech bumper.
You should give pacific a call and ask for louie, he will be able to help you. Good luck and let me know if u need any more help.
Take care
