There is pretty much no such thing as a snap-on fiberglass bumper. All of the fiberglass bumpers usually have to be fit(trimmed) in order to put them on. This is why it costs quite a bit to professionally install a fiberglass bumper since there is always a bit of bodywork required. I wonder if this is what you had experienced. I was a bit lucky with mine since I bought it used and someone already went through the pain of fitting it.

First off I was told that there was a 4-6 week delivery from England to Canada. It took over 3 months. Then when I got it, I had to manufacture brackets for the sides. Then my body shop guy showed me that the fiberglass thickness was inconsistent and the trim line was not symmetrical from left to right. It was also covered in hairline cracks. A little filler everywhere and it looked okay. Next I tried to fit the thing on and the damn thing was warped. One edge by the wheel wells is lower than the other. Then I noticed that the angle of a line on the top does not match the profile of the car.The crappy cover in to hide the screws in the front, I could have done a better job with a piece of wood and a carving knife. And how the hell are you supposed to put the brake ducts into place?!?!? The fog light brackets are useless and the outer air intakes hit the BMW rad ducting. Anyways I was very disappointed with the bumper and I don't know if this is common or not. I tried to email them numerous amounts of times with no reply! I am soooooo pissed at them, I feel like
