Opportunity to replace front bumper...

I have a 2011 550 non M-sport - I'm replacing the front bumper due to minor damage - I can either do an M-Sport or M5 style - the pricing is very similar. Now I don't want to start a thread about M5 posers etc. - I just want a more aggressive front bumper and this is my opportunity to do it. Furthermore I like the functionality of the fogs so I will add that onto the M5 style if I go that route.
I'm looking for advice from anyone that has gone down this route and would appreciate any recommendations for suppliers etc. My 550 has PDC and front cameras.

I replaced my base-model front bumper with the M sport version. Please see this thread:

I am happy with the new look and I'm glad I went with OEM-everything.

To summarize the advice I offer in other posts, take the following page to your local parts department. This page has the discounted price for the full kit. getbmwparts.com is just another BMW dealership, so any one of them can give to you the same price.

The paint and installation will each take a good portion of a work day, so plan on being without the car for a few days.

Enjoy!
