Default help 2008 bmw 535xi - 07-20-2017, 03:00 PM

i would like to change the front bumper for a nicer one since the stock one is not as sporty.
i personally like the m5 front bumper,but i am not sure if that all needed.
have anyone done a bumper swap? will stock fenders and kidneys fit or what else is needed for the m5 front bumper install.

searching online i could not find updated info on this subject. little post ive found are from 2011-12.

help would be appreciated.

I really don't think the process is any different since 2012. M5 front fascia swap is extremely common on 5's. Use the info you found.

It's just a simple unbolt and then bolt on the new bumper.

Don't get a real M5 bumper. It is not a direct bolt on unless you want to buy a lot of other parts. The "M5 Tech" front bumper from Umnitza is designed to bolt right on. I went with the M5 Tech one, fit was decent and turned out well.


DON'T buy VRSF D.Ps or inlets! I have them and their fitment sucks! Running their FMIC with no issues.
