Stock E55 rear-end.. Looks like a OEM E63 front end.

Thanx!..someone commented that it was OEM earlier...either way I see some Carbon fiber tidbit in the near future (splitter/diffuser)...

Is there a good source for these?

Regardless of whether is factory or aftermarket, it's a horrible installation job - the gap between the bumper cover and the hood is about twice as large as it should be. Was the car ever in an accident? Maybe the hood needs some alignment work; either that or the bumper cover needs to come up a bit. Based on the side shots, you can see how the gap to the fender increases from rear to front. Looks like the front bumper cover is sagging or something. Love the face lift look when it's done right, but this one's not there yet.

Agreed...it was one of my negotiating pints when I bought it...I'll be taking it to my bodyman so he can take a look...

side marker

So if I was to get the sunveer kit, does anyone know if the side marker trim is replaceable with one that has a lens? I need that to pass my safety inspections where I'm from.

2012 Volt and 2005 E55
Got my bumper and new lip coming next week, thanks you damn raccoon.

Car has parktronic and distronic please help me ensure I have all needed parts ordered. I plan to transfer my PDC brackets from my old bumper.

Now I am ready to order these parts listed in this thread:
211-887-03-27 Pull For Hood Latch $4.20
211-880-09-03 Inner Plastic Support $27.60
211-880-10-03 Inner Plastic Support $31.80
211-880-07-03 Center Inner Plastic Support $13.20

But are these below recommended or needed for best fitment?
Lower supports (found in another thread):
211-885-07-16 Reinforcement For Lower Bumper $20.40
211-885-08-16 Reinforcement For Lower Bumper $20.40
211-885-03-16 Reinforcement For Lower Bumper center $22.80

Foam behind the bumper:
Can E55 foam go into the E63 bumper with a little trim or is it best to order new foam as well?
211-885-13-37 Impact Absorber Center $20.40
211-885-15-37 Impact Absorber Left $21.60
211-885-16-37 Impact Absorber Right $21.60

Lower Center Mesh:
Does the center mesh it comes with look and perform fine or should I also get the OEM lower center mesh?
211-885-13-53 Center Mesh $151.20

Grill:
Will any ebay grill for a 07+ work for distronic or should I order the OEM grill?
Unknow part number but on parts.com $432.00, extreme price increase over the 55 grill which is $165!!!!
Thanks
H
