Sorry to hear about that incident. I just ordered an mtech II bumper last week, of courseit hasn't come in yet so I can't speak from experience, but imo it's an aggressive style with an oem look. Just my .02. Good luck.

MTech provides the perfect blend of aggressive styling with an oem feel.

You can also go with the m3 bumper (more aggressive) or some of the other options on the market....

but my suggestion would be mtech :hi:

Well you should search and you will find a ton, but regardless I will help.

Get an OEM M-Tech II, it has the best fitment. An OEM M3 will NOT fit on a non-M because M's are wider. If you want an M3, get a REPLICA from Euro-Spec. I have a DDM M-Tech II replica and it fits decently, but I will eventually get an OEM for perfect fitment.

Yes lips will fit on the replica M3 bumpers.

Please spell check and use proper grammar. It's really hard to follow a post and it's annoying. :)

Alrighty then, my bad on the grammar and puctuation. It's a little difficult to make it reader savy on a phone. But I'll do my best to make it easier to read. And thanks again I was hopin I could get a noob eliminator in here just didn't see how high up in rank I'd get. haha

Oh I didn't realize you were on your phone, my bad. That is a total PITA, I used to do it on my iPhone.

there is also the bumper for the aerodynamics package (which is what i really, really want, but mtech is easier to obtain and slightly cheaper). its rarer than the m3 reps and the mtech bumpers. i dont have a pic for reference, but its on this forum somewhere. anyway, it may or may not float your boat, but it is an option.

Its all good. But I'm sure the iphone was easier to view and load pages. All I got is a blackberry which will get select jobs done.

M-Tech II is a great compromise, not too aggressive looking, but WAY better than any other of the stock bumpers. It sits lower too.

Haha I know but you haven't been to utah... The local sport is cunstruction even when there was no reason for somethin to be built, they build it then 2 months later remove it.. And I feel like I need a hummer or toreg to go thru most of these cities.. If it looks like a hole or debri don't swerve or risk gettin hit or cited.. Just slow down and wait for it to eat your car alive. hahaha

Oh boy do I ever hear you! The worst part is that the construction doesn't seem to improve the road conditions after the matter. Ditches are pretty bad in UT, too.
