Hey guys, is this a real M3 rear bumper? I couldn't really tell.

I had it installed about a week ago and I can't tell if its real or not, I know it is very similar to the stock one, but how can I tell if its real M3 stuff? The diffuser is aftermarket.

Its not that I don't trust Charlie, its just that since it was an aftermarket lip Charlie might not even know himself if it was an M3 bumper or a stock bumper w/ an M3 lip. He even said himself that they are very similar. I just want to make 100% sure!

it doesn't look like the factory rear M3 bumper.. i think it is just a non_M rear bumper with an aftermarket M3 rear diffuser..

M52_Alpina,

just curious, exactly what makes it look like a non-M-Technic rear bumper? I personally cannot tell the difference so I was hoping you guys could. Thanks

Bryan

Is that a Sedan or Coupe? I think they are different. Also, nevermind I just parked beside an M3 today at the car wash and his bumper different than mine. I could see the his bumper was slightly wider and the top folded in more than mine did.

My final question, are the 2 door M3 rear bumpers the same as the 4 door M3 rear bumpers? Thanks guys!

Bryan
