Grille Guard / Push Bar / Bull Bar?

Any thoughts on the OEM BMW one, is it functional? Or is it not worth having? I'm also trying to find a set of install instructions before I buy it because it looks like I'll need to use the hole saw on the bumper...

thanks!

I've only seen a couple... not bad looking but I'd rather have the aero kit between the two. I'm not sure what you mean by functional... you're still going to have bumper dmg above certain speeds if you hit.

Hmm I'll definitely have to check into it more, from the few pictures I've seen it looks like it needs to be right outside the tow holes...aka hole saw time.

I've heard comments that this is decorative and cannot tolerate much force- and when it does bend it can cause more damage that whatever bent the bar to begin with would have without the Pus/brush/bull.
