Aftermarket e39 Mtech bumper recco



After 4 years of daily driving my m5 rain, sleet or snow, it's time for some exterior restoration. After 200K, it's looking a bit rough, but still love the beast.

I have damage to both front and rear bumpers, and it's enough that the body thinks it's easier to replace both rather than repair the damage. The front has several major cracks and so does the back (snow bank and unknown hit and run this winter)

I've been trying to buy OE bumpers, but never get to the listings in time. any reccos on who to buy a set from? I've seen the Kijiji ads from Extreme, but have heard mixed reviews.

I'm guessing you don't want to tackle the repair yourself? I'm really cheap so I repaired mine and got it painted. 20 bucks in materials and maybe 2 hrs total work..... Depends how bad it is....

I reinforced some of the cracked bits with plastic pieces on the inside.

Funny enough, i just got in touch with a shop today that specifically deals with welding plastic bumpers. Id give them a call first:

A collision 360

416 885 8670

Oem is best. matching vins are even better
