F30 328i Sport to M sport bumpers

I know this has been asked before to some degree, but I am looking for anyone who has recently done the M sport bumper conversion. I am wondering a few things, and hoping for some answers....

1. Has anyone recently installed the GoodGo/Kies M sport front/rear bumpers? If so, how much manipulation needed to be done? Was it a perfect fit? or was there a lot of body work? Some say none, others say it was a mess. I'm confused....

2. I found this online, and was ready to pull the trigger, but wanted to see if anyone ordered this before... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bumper-Cove....c101195.m1851
The bumper doesn't say it's GoodGo, but it states it's an OE replacement. I once had an OE replacement Honda bumper and it was perfect, so would this be the same? And then just order the parts to make it fit my non M sport?

3. For those who went the OEM route, did you buy new? If so, what was the rough cost? I haven't called my brother who works at a BMW dealer so I can get stuff at cost, just trying to get an idea of what I'm going to not tell my wife I'm spending....

Thanks again for any help and insight. I just recently got the car, I'm about to do the timing chain as a preventative, and want to get some stuff purchased and ready for when I get the car back...

1. No experience with Kies.
2. If fitment isn't good, you have 60 days to return it. Listing says free return shipping.
3. Not worth going OEM parts, I'd spend the extra money on a reputable auto paint shop, that could do an excellent job to paint match.

Been looking into this for myself as well, I was able to find some Kies bumper installs online and was just about to pull the trigger, but found a local shop that would sell, paint, and install the front and rear bumper for 1400, so I am just gonna end up going that route.

I have heard that GoodGo stuff is really high quality and fitment is perfect.

My car came from factory with M Sport package but I have got GoodGo front M Performance spoiler and rear diffuser and all I can say that fitment is 110% perfect, no gaps, no nothing. It's so well made and I LOVE IT.
