2019-11-28 - BMW Bumper Covers

BMW 3-Series bumper covers

Rule 4.7.6. Replacement of OEM Parts /

Tech interpretation and enforcement of BMW 3-Series bumper covers is that E30’s cannot use E36 covers.  E36’s may use aftermarket E36 M3 replacement cover but must remove lower “lip” or pay 10 points as a splitter.

The 1994 E36 BMW came from the factory with all the M tec (M3) bodywork which makes the M3 bodywork legal for the E36 platform.
