i agree with you the bumper looks good, but than it will seem like you are trying to have an M5 when u actually have a 335i, and if you look at the attached pic imo they look the same, actually 335 looks better maybe cuz thast what i have

It's that way the car doesn't have xenons? Only 335 have xenons or 2013 328s have them too?

335 i think comes standard with them but the 328 requires light package or something

I believe that F30 bumper looks better just because it matches the curves of the front. If you notice, the m5 and 5 series have a rounder front which matches the curves of the f10 bumper. Stick with the F30 bumper, guys that have m3s and m5s love my 335i M bumper. Could be that they are nice or scare I will beat them if they talk smack about my car.

Looking at the m5 /335i comparison pic, there's a huge difference in the shape around the grill and light area between the two. You'll be throwing away the top 1/3 of the bumper and doing some heavy customisation I imagine.

Ideally you would just chop the bottom of the M5 bumper and mate it to the F30 bumper's top to get the OEM fit with the M5 aggressiveness. Easier said than done, obviously.

Just section the lower grill from an F30 M Sport and flip it over. That's the primary difference between the F30 and M5. The side grills are almost exactly the same. The little character line above the side grill on the F30 could be shaved so it's flat like the M5, but I think it squares off the nose nicely.

Look what i did here, look at the front air scoop, the original M6 has a sunk in look while the M5 has a more stuck out front air scoop. put them both together and it looks just fine.
