M-Tech 2 aftermarket

Hello all
I am wondering if anyone on the forum has experience with this supplier?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/302124847241

BMW 3 E30 M TECHNIC 2/M Tech 2 LOOK FRONT + REAR BUMPER SPOILER / LIP (4 piece)

I am doing an e30 V8 swap so I am not a stickler for OEM but I do want to make sure they are decent workable parts.

Thanks for your help

not sure what they mean about 4 pieces. real ones are one piece rear and valance. fake ones are the same.
fake ones are usually one piece fronts. so the options should be either 2 or 3. but not 4.

Beware

Those pictures on that ebay link are not of the actual installed product.

The image below is a real Mtech2 kit. At least, the person on this board claims so anyway!

That's how they saved on shipping. They expect you to bond the pieces together. Apparently this is a thing now. Pretty shitty if you ask me.

If i received something that was halved to save on shipping. I would flip shit like no one has ever seen before. What the fuck kind of shit is that. Do they have no basic knowledge of working on cars just trying to make a buck?

Wow.

Just.

Wow.

$340 shipped from Poland would have scared me from the beginning.

Seems like the perfect bumper for when you are planning to "drift" straight in to a telephone pole and want to try to scam your insurance company out of a few extra dollars.

The only problem with that is you'll need your drift buddy to slam you right in the rear end so they don't see the zip stiched rear cover.
