you can also look at some others, depending on if you want the identical m3 bumper or just a cool looking bumper, the hartge one i found doesn't look exactly like the m3, but i like it better. good luck!
just get a replica that is made of plastic not fiberglass and you'll be straight. mine is a replica and there are zero differences except the lip on the bottom is not separate on mine but that worked out great bc i wanted to paint the lip silver anyway
installation is a snap. to get it off pop out the bumper trim with a screw driver, then loosen all the tiny bolts holding the plastic on (underneath and in the wheel wells). now pop out the foglights and disconnect them. then loosen the four main mounting nuts on the front middle of the bumper and it will slide off. now swap the threaded tabs from your stock bumper to the ///M bumper, same with the foglights. pop out the snaps holding the reinforcement bar on and swap it to the new bumper. (make sure your new bumper comes with the right molding, grille, and brake ducts. -most will) installation is just the opposite. it will mount right up (plug-n-play) post pics when u get it!
