search was initialized and yielded a healthy 470 found threads in the E30 section-
most of which where among a vast ocean of "for sale" and "how to remove" bumper quieries.

I was simply asking for a fairly straight forward answer to a fairly straight forward question after performing a search.

I'm tossed up on whether i'm just going to tuck my diving board bumpers, or go all out and purchase plastic ones.

I do appreciate your patience and calm understanding craz azn...I hope that we can both move forward from this learning experience and one day sit back in our wingchairs sipping aged cognac, puffing imported cubano cigars and discuss the rise and fall of post war neo-political ventures, and international current events.

kindest regards,

LOL Fair enough, that made me laugh. Search on R3V. Much more e30 knowledge available than maX.

HadesM5s post is a good one done by Josh Anderson, another approach to the rear bumper is Jordan Sarette's version: http://www.r3vlimited.com/Tech/bumper1.htm

I am going to suggest buying euro bumpers because they look better and bolt on.

well , for the front bumper is direct swap, just get the 88+valance and the 88+shocks for it,, for the rear needs alots of work u need to make it shorter , so u have to do some fiberglass work. or just get the BMP rear bumper looks better and the same as 88+bumper with atached valance ,.

ali.
