Occam's razor suggests to me that they probably made the bumper smaller, not the car bigger...

Measure -> cut -> trim -> patch -> fill -> sand -> paint sorta deal...

(Plus whatever other gajillion steps I missed. If it were me I would need a whole day just to curse at and kick the damn thing when I realized I measured wrong in step one but didn't notice until after my hands were bleeding from all the sanding in step six which was necessitated by my hackjob of putting it back together in step four and GODDAMNIT WHOSE STUPID IDEA WAS THIS ANYWAY WHY DIDNT I JUST GET AN E36 BUMPER THEY WERE CHEAPER ANYWAY STUPID CAR AKDLIFGHJLAAaaaaaaagh)

*cough*

Yeah.
