Need a little help for 2004 330ci

If anyone can help me with some suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. Here is my problem. I am about to purchase
a 330ci and I am considering getting the m sport package but I am thinking of replacing the wannabe m bumpers with real ones. Can anyone suggest where I would be able to purchase the bumpers and get them put on? I live in Toronto, but I don't mind going somewhere farther for quality work.

Please help!!

Well the Dealer itself should be able to sell you the authentic M3 body kit...no?

big bucks...but it'll be OEM

The M3 has fender flares, as well as minor body changes, as far as I'm aware. It'll be very expensive to pull off in the OEm category.

You can get a replica M3-esque front bumper that fits non-M fenders for a reasonable price, but its not OEM.

OEM? Thanx! Any ideas of a good place where I can get this done? I wasn't aware that the dealer would sell authentic M3 body kits, as well as the wannabe.

teh m sport package is not a wanna be m3 kit, its totally different

u cant fit the oem m3 parts on a normal coupe, the m3 is wider and has a different body

i say stick with the mtech kit, if you got the oem body part than youd really be a poser

Yes Golden is right!

Stick with the M-tech unless you want to spend on the Ritger M3 front which isn't 100% the same as the OEM M3.

You will also need the hood to fit the OEM M3 front and sides. Big $$$

You can get the real deal, but you will have to replace your front and rear bumpers and have the M3 exhaust custom fitted to your car if you want the rear valence. Persoanlly, I would go with the RD tornado kit on a 3 series if I didnt have an M3.
