FEELER: BMW M-Tech Bumper (E39 540i)
 
I have an original BMW M-Tech front bumper cover (almost identical to M5) available for sale.
The bumper is currently on my 2003 "Individual" Aegean Blue Metallic 540i, which has headlight washers, but no PDC.
The bumper has a slight crack, below the front main air intake, that is not very noticeable and can easily/cheaply be fixed.
The bumper is only available until March 7th.
If interested, PM/e-mail me at mrvster@aol.com

I have no idea what an M-Tech bumper is worth (new = +/- $1000 + tax).
What do they go for used ?

I'm switching to........the exact same bumper....*drink*...need to calm my OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) related to my car.
It's related to an insurance claim, so I need to get a minimum $$$ to make it reasonable to buy a new one.
European Autobody promissed me that mine can easily be fixed to new, but I'm anal about these things.

How much did you get it from the dealer? I have a 525iT and I'm looking to get one from the dealer but the US pricing is a lot cheaper than here ...

Thanks.

You can't expect too much. Don't forget you still have to pay the labor to European Autobody, and it's one of the most expensive body shop however they do great job.
Also, aftermarket parts beat you the most.

So how much IYO is it worth ?

OFF TOPIC:

Brand new e90 was side ended right on the rear bumper. European Autobody promised that it can be repaird (state farm insurance = worst insurance compnay period). EA said they would want it repaired and wouldnt go for a new one.

2 months later and trying to get it repaired didn't work so finally did put in a new one sooo much aggravation.

Get a second opinion on your bumper.

State farm wants to save few hundred but ended up spending atleast 10-12x...

Not worried...
 
The small crack on mine is located inside the scoop of the large center air intake.
It's a non stress area, especially since the crack runs sideways.
This is a real easy fix to an area that rarely meets the eye.
THNX anyway for the advice "porksoda".

Pending Sale...
 
Someone is coming by to look at it tonight.

The guy interested in my bumper is also looking for some updated (OEM) stock headlights.
Are your old ones for sale ?
If "Yes", then PM me your contact telephone number.

DINAN 3 03-04-2009 12:07 AM

Conditionaly SOLD...
 
The bumper is comming off my car next week.
Though I'm pretty confident in the sale, I'll accept a 2nd in line, just in case the seller changes his mind.
