stock bumper to M3 bumper

I have a 94 325 is and am thinking of changing over to a M3 front bumper. Can the original unerpanel be used to fit the M3 bumper?

I know the brake ducts are different, the rest might be the same... check RealOEM.com for the part #'s and see if they match up.

I did the conversion reusing all the old pieces. You will need new brake ducts, however.

The peices that cover the inner corners of the bumper are identical. However, the actual parts that clip onto the underneath (porkchops), are M3 specific. You can reuse the old ones, fitment isn't quite 100%.

the bumpers are 120$ from DDMtuning. You can get them shipped to the border for 57$.

180$ and you gotta drive to buffalo. If this was an option last year, i would've bought 5 of them.

(i paid 2X for my m3 replica bumper)

Where would it get shipped to in Buffalo? Is there a P.O. Box that I can use for this? I'd gladly go for a 1 hour drive to save over $100 in shipping.

Why don't you contact DDM Tuning directly and ask them how much it will cost to ship to Canada?

It's not so much about the extra shipping costs, but about avoiding brokerage and possibly taxes. If you cross the border with it, and show the $112 invoice, they'll likely let you go without the charges. Happens to me all the time as long as the value is fairly low....

Thanks everyone. I think a few weeks ago someone was actually going to drive to the States and pick up bumpers for people. He was then going to distribute them when he was back on Canadian soil. (don't remember who it was) Sounds like a good idea-saves us a lot of coin. At that time their didn't seem to be a lot of interest. Hopefully someone does the same thing once the weather becomes warmer.
