My Lovely wife recently backed into my car and put a hole in my front bumper.  It is a 2007 MSport bumper and would consider changing to the same or convert to similar or M3 style.  Can anyone recommend where to purchase and any experience with Ebay copies.  I do like the look of a copy but not sure: http://www.ebay.com/itm/182589225485?ul_noapp=true  

Appreciate any help

Is that price right? 2K USD. 

Anyways. https://ltmotorwerks.com/ would be your best bet. Ive heard nothing but good things from them. Also guaranteed fitment.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the tip.  LTMotorwerks looks pretty awesome.

My local panelbeater suggested not worth repairing and have sourced another Mtech bumper here in NZ.  Thankfully insurance picking up the bill but will still cost $2000.  I only get the excess thankfully

Just curious... did you get quoted for fixing the one you have? That doesn't look like $2k worth of damage...

No I didn't.  As I had insurance to cover, I wanted the best option and he suggested that repair would not be as good.  Here is a break down of costs
