2007 Rear Bumper Conversion to 2011+

I'm about to do the rear bumper facelift to the 2012 LCI bumper.

I know I need the following:
1. rear cover
2. left and right lower pieces
3. center difuser
4. center lower trim piece
5. reflectors left and right
6. anything else?

Are there any mounting brackets that are needed? Has anyone done this I'd like to get their input if they have. I know I need to remove the rear fender flares to get access to the side panels.

Would love to get any help here, and yes I have searched and searched.

Thanks,

Yup, got everything ordered today. Bought some used pieces off eBay too and it will all go to the body shop for prep and paint. When it's ready I'll go down and have them mount it all up. I'm guessing a day to remove and reinstall the new pieces.

Been there, done that.

The rear is a breeze. The front is a bit more challenging.http://www.xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-foru...nt-bumper.html

Do you have a parts list of what you had to replace for the front? Did you need to replace any of the main supports "carrier" and did you reuse the fog lights?

I know the obvious bits that need to be replaced bumper, grilles, etc. it's what is behind the bumper that I'm curious about. Any modifications needed to fit the fenders?

Thanks!

Sry, just seeing this. Obviously the fenders, bumper, etc. The pre-LCI wheel arches are fine. I replaced the carrier, but not sure it was entirely necessary. The pre-LCI fog lights do NOT fit. Had some fitment issues with attaching the lower portion of the front underride protection (stock code #51117222729) but resolved that problem with some tie wraps underneath since they're not visible anyhow. You'll also need to replace the side reflectors, towing eye, a other few small items that I forget the details but didn't cost more than $20 to $30 new from the dealer. Hope this helps and good luck! Post some pics when you're done.
