How are you going to do the door handles? Are you using any adhesive primer? Is that laminated too or just the vinyl?

So why did you change the regular rear bumper to an M Sport style? It didn't look damaged in the original pics.

I'm very interested in the list of parts that you bought to convert from standard to M sport rear bumper. I'm converting mine also. The bumper cover is on the way to me now. Once you've caught up on your sleep, would you please post or PM the list of parts that you had to buy?
Thank you!

Getbmwparts . Com has a kit with all parts needed. I converted mine with parts through my local BMW dealer.
