M-Sport Replica Bumper

Hello Gentlemen,

I am new to the site as I am now in the market for a 2011 535i. I love the look of the M-sport but they are hard to come by in the used car market right now. I have found a nice car with the regular sport package that I am strongly considering. My question is the this, does anybody have a link or any contact information regarding the M-Sport replica front bumpers? I have tried to google around and have not had any luck. Several of the members on here have them but I am unable to PM anybody until I get 5 posts under my belt. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks

Here's a commercial post from Trinity Motorsports, here in So Cal. I've never dealt with them myself, but I've heard good things about them personally, not just from board posts.

Their post is also very honest about the imperfection of the replica kit.

IMO, the imperfections are ok if you have a dark car, specially black. It might be more obvious on white or silver.

I'm planning on doing this mod too and I will definitley stop by trinity to see actual fitment prior to ordering.

Cheers!

Just FYI, oem msport front bumper is only about $1600 painted and installed.

Unless the cost of the replica is half of that, it makes more sense to go oem.

Other than front bumper, the most important thing is the msport steering wheel which is thicker than regular sport.

Does the $1600 include the lower grills, foglights and other hardwares?

If so then oem is the right way to go.

$599 with fog lights. I'm planning on getting this one.

A lot cheaper than OEM.

I had the replica m bumper kit which includes everything (grill, bar, foglights etc).
total cost installed, painted is about $900.

I saw the pics in your other thread, definitely looks great!!

How's the fitment on that bumper? It looks great in the pics, but its also a little hard to see some of the small details, since the car is black.

Your car is pretty much everything that I want to do

Actually, as of a few days ago, these were NOT yet in stock... I tried to order and found out that their website was wrong...

I was told 6/15 is the current ETA.

I ended up getting a 535i M-Sport so I will not be looking for a M sport bumper anymore. Thanks for all the help though guys. I will get the pics up as soon as I get the M spoiler, painted reflectors and black grill.

How do you get them cheaper than that?

And where can I get that deal?
