Help: Bumper condition - easy fix?

Hi ALL,

Totally noob here so please bare with me. I now have a 2003 z4 non M jetblack and will do a z4 m front bumper conversion. Now this guy is selling me a used M bumper for $150 but please see attached pics if it is worth dealing with. Its cheap for sure but can this be fixed easily? and how? or I could just send it to a body shop and let them deal with it. any info would be great!!! just tired of the front bumper look.

I agree, that's a lot of work that needs to be done for a selling price of $150. I say pass and wait for a better condition bumper to pop up.

Plenty of local/enthusiast shops who sell OEM parts will match Tischer pricing w/o the shipping. That's what I did when I purchased my Aero bumper =)
