If its from Euro-spec, you couldn't be more wrong. They don't sell eBay-type garbage. They sell quality pieces.

When I say Euro-spec, I mean the company Euro-spec, one of E46fanatics best sponsors. Thats what I thought the OP meant. If he meant its a euro specification M3 front, then I misread it. My bad. The company Euro-spec sells very high quality replica bumpers which go far beyond fleabay garbage. Yes, they source replicas from factories in Asia, but the company owner (Paul) took great pains to ensure these replicas are high quality. Hope this clears things up! You don't hear any fitment horror stories from Pauls customers! :thumbup:

well, if you went threw as many of those bumpers as i did, you'll know there is better, this one is weak, had the same one and there is better out there.

center mesh... you can't remove it unless you start to cut up the bumper, if you do that, it makes the bumper weak.
the bumper is also shorter in length, the front of the car, in respect with the ground and front bumper... bigger gap.
also it has these thick lines, that go from bottom of the bumper to the top and left to right, and you gota sand those... they r a bitch, after 2k primer... its like your fixing a damaged new bumper.


also the guy said "its a euro spec" NOT its FROM euro spec.

yes , it is "from" euro-spec http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=479911&highlight=m3+bumper and those thick lines your talkin about are thiner than a strand of hair, you right about oem being better than replicas but you get what you pay for.

not one place does it say its from euro spec, but w/e

as you can see, the fitment around the headlight is not the best bigger gaps and smaller on the other side, and there is a HUGE gap between the bumper and ground. i had all these same issues

i dont know if you can read or not , but the pic was taken w/o the fender bolts in thus the larger gap on one side. even if there is a silght fitment issue i am positive any qualified bodyman will have no problem making it look good.

Man... i had this same bumper, i know how it is, this is a peice of plastic, its not bendable.
the bumper is nice and all, and is 100 times better then the fiberglass crap that is sold, but its still weak, i would perfer to send a bit more and get quality.

Care to post some proof that you actually had this exact bumper? Shipping Receipt, Purchase Invoice.. something?

Show us pics of your oem bumper, that is now installed on your car to compare fitment, gaps etc?

Amen! Since this is from Euro-spec, I'm betting it fits perfectly.
