BMW autoparts didn't have any in my colour, railway had 2 but some chap took both recently. Cc in Armagh said they had one in stock in the right colour/spec so will try and get down over the weekend. Thanks again for the names
Cheers @Chris tii that was my worry regarding a slight mismatch. Was it paintworkz you used when you had it done last time?
Nufinish came back with a quote for the repair which ends up around the same as getting a 2nd hand + repaint. My logic is that, a repaired bumper won't be as structurally sound as a 2nd hand one?
Overdue update as been busy recently.
Turned up for the bumper in the E39 thinking it'd fit somewhere. Got laughed at
Not sure what exactly I was thinking but managed to get a friend who's got access to a van.
Should be picking it up next weekend then taking it to krcr. Terry has been nothing but helpful, talked me through all my options and answered all my questions.
If all goes to plan, should be able to go to my first meet at bushmills on the 15th
Yes, definitely not to everyone's taste similar to black grills or square plates. I saw it on a wagon in person at bushmills and it was spot on. Albeit it was on a silver car.Looks great. I hate those splitters but everyone has different tastes I guess. Personally I’d do the T bar delete on the front bumper turning it into a m5 one. And maybe some m5 mirrors
Disappointing as when I had phoned CC Automotive about it, they had confirmed that it's never been repaired/repainted before I made my way down. Doubt I'll have any luck returning this as I'm sure it's sold as seen. Just need to chalk this up to experience.
Yeah, I'll know better next time.He’s been shady with me regarding the condition of parts too.
