X5 M-Sport Bumper onto regular X5 possible?

I would like to swap a bumper from the M-Sport X5 onto my regular X5 (pre-LCI)

It looks like it should be a direct swap, but I'm having trouble sourcing the actual bumper. Only found a couple used ones on Ebay that would be coming from Europe.

What other parts would be involved?

M-Sport: http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n...t/IMG_0191.jpg

Regular bumper (not my car): http://alldesign.es/wp-content/uploa...01-930x619.jpg

Also, I bought the aero kit, would there be any problems fitting the aero kit onto the m-sport bumper? I can't seem to find any pics with the pre-LCI m-sport bumper w/aero kit.

Any help would be appreciated

That's not an M Sport Bumper.

The aero kit won't fit properly without modification as the lower balance is a bit different . Best option would be to have the current bumper body color and fit the aero kit . Current bumper with aero kit is very aggressive

Agree. Original bumper with aero kit looks very good. Even better if you leave the original black plastic sections stock standard (don't colour match). Just my opinion obviously but the car is too big to be all one colour top to toe...the LCI version (the white one) has always looked like a blob of whipped cream to me - just too much of one colour for a car of that size...but that's just me, I like a little contrast.
