Need help with bumper install

Any local vendors on the board that can help me with this

I have an m3 replica bumper for my e46 pre facelift sedan that I need installed. There is no visible mounting points in the centre to secure the bumper on the rebar.. The sides slide into the bracket just fine and the bumper sits fine..

I am will pay of course for the full install.. I considered just mounting from the sides an leaving it but not too comfortable with that idea

Thanks in advance

What color is your vehicle?

I may be interested in purchasing your old bumper.

You don't need a shop.
Go to E46fanatics.com, do some searching, and find the bumper adapters you need.

This is the wrong website for these types of questions. 95% of people here drive E30/E36s

Already searched e46fanatics, and the bumper adapters you are referring to are only needed for facelift cars.. Mine is pre facelift and the solution commonly accepted on e46fanatics is not something I'm comfortable doing .. Therefore shop recommendations
