F30 335xi M sport bumper related question

So i just got a full oem msport front bumper ,sideskirt and rear bumper for my f30 from a friend. Is the swap a direct fit or do i need to get other parts for it to work? bumpers come with reflectors grills and fog light.
thank you

Youíll need a bunch of parts for the front bumper. Air ducts and shrouds, deformation elements, reinforcement bar and more. if you want to go full oem original, all the parts will be hundreds. I did my full oem swap and without bumpers the parts were $800+ from Ecs shipped to the states. That was the cheapest option. The sides and rear donít need anything except the rear bumper has a plastic reinforcement piece. You could install the front with the bare minimum ducts and a couple other pieces for a couple hundred bucks.

no, but you will need the bottom liner that attaches between the bumper and the fender liner.

I did the sportline to msport swap on my f30 335. if you want to save a few hundred bucks on this conversion. there is an option to do the swap without changing the deformation elements. however be aware that the elements connect to a lower support bar that will need to be completely removed. this support bar is meant to take impact in a front collision.

if you do decide to change the deformation elements. be ready to spend $$$$ as you will need to take out your intake move your radiator etc to access one of the bolts holding them in place in order to change them.

I did not go this route as i didn't think it was worth the money. I know everyone has different opinions on this but it was my decision and my car.

if you have any more questions with this conversion. shoot me a message. just went through this a month ago and tried to go OEM as possible. i ordered all of my parts from getbmwparts.com and crossed border to pick them up.

also there is an adapter 51118068130 I highly recommend you get in order to secure the bottom of the bumper to the plastic engine splash shield. and buy a few extra plastic expanding rivets 51111908077 like 10 of them. they will come in handy.

good luck.
