I've got a black/black E93 and I intend to do PDC retrofit so I'll need bumpers which have the PDC holes provisioned. My front bumper also has license plate holes from being a California car before I brought it here to AZ(rear plates only) which is all the more reason to do this. I'll also have the AD-E 1,000HP FMIC, so it will be plenty big to fill the void.

I do not want to go with an M style, I'd rather go with a factory option or a true aftermarket bumper created for our cars. For the rear, I already have settled on the Mtech.

I had the Amuse style trunk on my E90, I don't intend to do a custom trunk for this car as there is nothing feasible which I'd also trust with the hard top. But am on the fence over the Amuse front bumper. Part of me likes it and part of me thinks it might be a bit too much. What do you think? Does anyone have it? Did it scrape more often?

At this price, I'm having a hard time not buying it:

Also, I'm going to do grills and shadowline trim(vinyl). Assuming I got the cf splitters on the bumper, would matte or glossy look better?

Very nice! How much did you pay for it if you don't mind me asking, and do you scrape more often than the stock bumper? I'd assume so because it sticks out more?

Pm me about pricing! But yes this bumper sits a lot lower then stock. On my coils I was on the lowest setting and now it's on the highest setting. Still scrape but not to bad, just have to be careful.

I have it and I love it! Of course with it being aftermarket, fitment was an absolute nightmare (got it from RWCarbon) if it helps. Took a lot of work from a good body shop to trim it right and get the fitment perfect. Thankfully it was free due to insurance work needed on my car.

As for the bumper, it's a little awkward in the sense that it hangs super low compared to an oem M/MTech or stock bumper and in doing so, it makes the rest of the car look "uneven". Looking at the car from the side profile, the front is just aggressive and low, then you see the side skirts, rear bumper, and start to notice how much higher off the ground they look. That's the only thing that really bothers me. Otherwise, don't really mind it being that low.

This isn't the best pic quality of the bumper as it sits on my car, but it's what I had available on my phone.

Thanks for the input guys.
My only gripe is that I'm scrape sensitive. And considering its quite a bit lower I'll have to think some more on it. I'd like to drop the car a tiny bit and I assume this only makes that harder.... Hmmm.

I live in San Francisco and it's my daily driver at that height in the picture lol. Am completely maxed out in the front on KW V1's. Then again your height setup may be different from mine so yeah. I don't scrape often, once a week if anything haha, considering I just know which streets and hills to avoid. It's not like ridiculously low imho. Driveways are fine too for the most part if you angle it.

I like this front bumper alot too. When I get the the exterior part of my build I want the Mtech rear bumper first then go with a new front bumper. I already have M3 rep side skirts.

I would go with it over the Mtech, but I am still not a huge fan of how it looks. Then again I am biased to my Arkym bumper :)

Love it but needs to be paired with aggressive styling theme throughout the entire car. Arkym is my absolute favorite but sadly no pre-lci available.
