help with rear bumper on f10 535?

hey everyone i'm fairly new to this, but I have a 2012 535i x-drive f10. I do NOT have the m-sport package so i dont have any of the trims, is there anyway i can still get a different bumper to fit something like a quad exhaust? I've tried to search all around and every place says it must be a M-sport package...

You have a couple options.

1. You can keep your non sport bumper and add on this diffuser.

2. Purchase a msport rear bumper and diffuser. It is a direct fit, you won't need to make any other modifications.

You have a few options;

You could go for a OEM bumper, either new from BMW or used from e-bay. On ebay, just do a search for BMW F10 M sport rear bumper and see if there are any for sale. You can also find diffusers there. If you're lucky you'll find a bumper in the same colour as your car.

New bumpers can also be sourced via aftermarket vendors, but fit and finish might not be 100% as good as stock.

Here's a few links for you:

M5 Bumpers:

Here's one for sale on this forum:

Complete parts list for OEM bumper conversion:

All of the parts in the last link can be bought via your local BMW dealer. You can also go on www.realoem.com and find the part numbers you need if you want a M5 diffuser etc.

I have a M5 diffuser and M-sport rear bumper, you need the parts listed and need to remove a plastic cover behind the bumper. But a really easy DIY.
