So i was taking the front bumper of my 330i and i was using the Diy provided under the "tech" link and it was pretty straight forward but ran into a problem. when taking off the 2 "main" bolts that hold the bumper on in the front i get them lose and unbolted but they will not come out . they unscrew and sit in the bumper and i cannot get them out and i cannot pull the bumper off. What am i doing wrong here :hmm:

I took an M3 bumper to some body shop, the guy who painted it was supposed to drill holes and install it as well but.. he couldn't manage to take my oem bumper off, those 2 bolts, he couldnt even get them lose :confused:

Which bolts in the front? I just took out the bolts in the fender liner and the small ones under the bumper, pulled it forward and it popped right off. Are you trying to take the aluminum bumper support off?

not sure about E46330iguy (we probably have different bumpers, because I have 323i), but I was talking about 2 bolts that are located behind the foglight slots, that should have the shape of this one:
