Replacing Front Bumper

Guys,

1. Does anyone know if there are instructions available on replacing the front bumper ? This is for 2011 528i. Rear ended a guy few weeks ago who stopped unexpectedly making a right turn on a green light. Fortunately impact was minor and just got a small crack in a corner and some abrasion marks. Want to take it down and inspect behind to ensure everything is OK.

2. If I decide to put a new bumper, do they sell finished ones with matching color ? I have seen primerred only. Any hints ?

Much appreciate any help

Thanks

Contact Long or Ivan @ LTBMW and they can get you the bumper painted and installed and
if you want they can get you the M sport if you don't already have it.

Hopefully you decide to tackle taking it off and doing a DIY for us on here. I'm working on an intake for the 550i but would need to take the bumper off. I HATE taking body panels off and would rather take apart the whole engine than a body piece as for some reason I always mess it up. Yours gotta be repaired anyways what have you got to lose? Do it!
