I have an LCI sedan with a sport bumper, I want to upgrade to an Msport bumper and retain Front PDC. I'm not too concerned with having to put holes inthe bumper to mount the sensors. Wondering on spacing behind the bumper because of how close the crash bar already sits to the back of the sensor with the oem sport bumper, the Msport bumper dips inward in the middle.

Does anyone know if its possible to retain front PDC?

I have read something that its not possible unless you replace the bar(PreLCI E92). I did a PDC retrofit and I do remember stumbling across some information like that. The M Sport bar has a dip in it or something so the sensor fits in there. So if isn't out of the realm of possibility you need a new bar for the LCI as well. Also, most bumpers will have pre marked spots to drill, I got my (PreLCI) M Sport from @786dynamics it is possible he can get you one for the LCI as well. I know he drilled my PDC holes for me, and the sensors fit snugly in them. Just make sure you get them cleaned up before paint.

Looks like he does sell them here: https://bmw.spoolstreet.com/shop/e90-front-mtech-bumper-lci.50/?fromcat=20

Thanks for the info, I'll shoot him and see if he has any experience with front PDC and LCI from sport to msport.
