Whats up

I am going to most likely go with the Rieger front bumper once this hamann one goes again.... couple of questions

Where can I buy

How much

How is the fitment*?

Can I pop it right on and drive off, or does it require modifications


thanks fellas, appreciate the help :thumbup:

not visible damage, only the under side of it... it has a small piece of plastic missing which broke off from my driveway when my sis was pulling out.... its not even visible, but it bothers me.... besides, i wont be installing the rieger until this one gets bad enough where it can be seen from looking at it

i didnt let her, she took it while i was sleeping :thumbdwn:


its all good because shes buying me any new front bumper that i want, and u cant even see the damage.. the only reason i found out is because there was red plastic on the floor, i was like ahhh crap, i rubbed the bottom of the kit and theres a little chunk missing :sad:

OEM will also facilitate the AC addon ;)

You're a coupe, right? I'd think that the retrofit would be easier on your
coupe than PortlandDinan3's sedan ... not sure though.

I think the Rieger kit is a little lower than stock ... I think it looks
*real* nice with the Hamann sides. Flows well ... see Mikey's sedan for
evidence.

To help answer your questions:
DTM Autohaus has Rieger for a good price.
The fitment is perfect. The bumper attaches to the stock supports used on the stock bumper. Depending on how you attach the bumper (glue, screws) and where you attach the screws you can slide the front bumper on and off. I did this for awhile before I went in and out of my driveway until I got tired of it and raised my car an inch.
The kit comes with the mesh as well. The fogs are about $200. It uses the OEM M3 fogs, so if you can get a better deal on them somewhere else I would do that.
Hope this helps. :thumbup:
