What else is needed with this to complete the install?

That's a complete kit since it includes the support bracket

Nothing else for the front bumper. BUT, if you want a full M-sport conversion for the front, there's various air ducts that need to be changed out. The underbody tray is also slightly different, but afaik has no functional difference, it's just a two piece tray vs a one piece tray. There's threads out there where people list part numbers for the air ducts

If you have high speed package or hot climate version, you have an additional oil cooler behind the fog light grilles. I'm not sure which side it's on since I THINK they changed it for LCI and I have a LCI, but mine is on the passenger side. It's pretty easy to confirm which side it is on by taking a look inside the fog light grille area and looking for a radiator. I'm actually not 100% sure if the pre-LCI ones even had this option...

If you don't have either package, I'd just take a pass on the ducting. If you do have the cooler, I'd look into getting the ducting for at least the cooler, mine is kind of jank right now since I just took a dremel and opened up the original ducting... not elegant and I'm planning on getting the proper ducts.

The page for all the ducting you might or might not need:
https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/sho...diagId=51_7940

Look for items with S715A=Yes

IMPORTANT:
Your kit DOES NOT include the M sport foam absorber. The non-msport one is too thick for the M Sport bumper. The one you need is either part number 51117903991 or 51117903993, I'm not really sure which one, you'll have to research that a little more.

Not yet, still looking into the air ducting. Plus I need to talk to Jim at prestige to see pricing on paint. Just so i have a base price for everything.

My 2012 (pre-LCI) has a radiator of some sort behind the passenger-side fog light; it does have the S823A: Hotclimate version
