Does the 6er have replica M-Kits?

One of the big factors in my future decision to get a 6 is the body kit changes. I know the 5 has a ton of replica parts that are damn near OE quality but what about the 6 series? Are you going to find an Mtech kit for a 650 for $800-$900? Front bumpers for $349? I'm just wondering how bad of a money-pit it will be if I pull the trigger.

P.S. - Thanks Tbal for getting me hooked on the 6 series.

Hmmm, beware the Tbal!! There are kits, but no oem other than going for an m6 part and modifying...but there may be alpina , or hamman, hartge, gforce, acs and so on if you want aftermarket tuners...there out there!

Nothing like 5 series. There are kits, but they are all SUPER expensive, and all aftermarket.
Except for genuine M6 parts, nothing is made by BMW for the car.

He wants CHEAP.... The M6 Kit from the Dealers is probably the cheapest kit on the market, I could have got two painted M6 front bumpers for my unpainted Hamann front, The M6 Skirts from the dealer, when I bought I had to check they never messed up the price they were that cheap.

There are replica M6 parts on Ebay, but if you have a Trade discount the parts will work out just as cheap for genuine, infact the guy on the UK ebay is selling replica m6 skirts for more than a genuine with the trade discount lol.

And in America you guys have dealers that sell parts cheaper than UK trade haha

So with our member discounts of 25% off BMW parts from various vendors like Garry / Tischer BMW, etc. you're clearly getting a better deal for OEM. That's astonishing. I guess there just aren't enough 6ers out there for the Chinese market to make replica parts from alpina , hamman, hartge, gforce, acs, etc.

I ask for replica because the quality of my body kit was really, really good from Trinity and its all Chinese stuff. Fitment was perfect, etc. so why pay 3x the cost for OEM? That's why I was asking.

Yup. No replica kits availiable for the 6ers. I get jealous seeing all those nice kits for the 5 with pretty resonable costs.

You can find these bumpers time to time on ebay, craigslist etc... Usually around 350-500 a piece.... Sideskirts are about $250 a piece brand new...
