Question: Msport front bumper, or all bumpers?

As the poll says!

Get the front, or get the whole thing?

If I only get the front, I save cash, and can put it towards smth else (Msport steering wheel or MPerformance suspension retrofit kit).
Thoughts?

Thoughts?

a bunch of people only get the front. it wont look weird with just the bumper but if you add a lip the front of the car will look more aggressive than the rest so you may want to consider the rear bumper as well. The sides dont really need to be changed but there are knockoffs online that fit pretty well and usually come with the mperformance extensions too.

I don't wanna add a lip, the goal is to have a nice OEM+ car but on a budget as this is a daily driver really. For fun I plan on getting smth else next year.

That's funny. I have a Sportline 335i and I actually like my front and rear bumpers. I was going to swap out the side skirts on mine only for a slight look upgrade. I feel the lower portion of the non M Sport F30's can use some help.

I noticed this as well. I MAY swap the front bumper but I'm definitely doing the rear soon. I'm already itching to get it done and I got a good price from the seller I purchased the rockers from. They're the Good Go brand and they seem pretty good for the money.

Awesome to hear. Seems like a crazy deal for entire body msport lookalike. Any idea how much a paint job and installation would cost on the whole thing? I have mineral white paint on my F32.

I got quoted from $800-$1300 for paint only on front/rear bumpers and side skirts. $800 seemed reasonable to me given the prep and paint labor needed.

Unless the forum members here that voted to get all of the parts are contributing and giving you money... go with what you can afford for now. Front only is perfectly ok.
