Front Bumper Replacement

Postby wbruzzese » Mon Feb 20, 2012 8:22 am

I'm needing to replace the front bumper on my 98 328is and was thinking about replacing it with DDM Tuning's M3 Front Bumper along with JTD E36 Underpanel. Anyone had any experience with these products or DDM Tuning in general? I'm also open to other recommendations.

I just ordered both about 2 weeks ago. I know the m3 front bumper fitment is perfect. I've put one on from DDM for a guy at a meet about 8 months ago. All of their stuff is really good. I would recommend it.

I'm not that fond of DDM, though they tend to resell decent products their customer service can be troubles when you have a defective item. Its more of an issue of cheap Chinese made car parts, it made it too easy for people to get lower quality products for their car for cheap . Though the body parts are okay, I would go with the motion motorsport underpanel kit. Its a much better product.

I'd have to agree with the underpanel. Although I don't have either I know motion motorsports underpanel is widely used in the e36 scene

I've had both. I prefer the motion underpanel after you rivet the supports into the frame rail.

I have the DDm Bumper with the Molded Lip and its actually not bad. I second on the Underpanel go with Motion!
