Default Umnitza - I Approve

There's been a lot of mixed emotions with this company and considering more people complain then praise, I wanted to share my story of success.

I ordered M5Tech front bumper, M5 rear bumper, M5 fenders, carbon fiber front lip, and Dual exhasut/Quad tips.

This is for 2010 528xi(So yes the exhaust fits fine for those that always questions the XI version)

I have 0 experience with body work though I'm a pretty handy guy..All pieces to this project have what I consider perfect fitment.. After struggling a bit with the first fender cuase I didnt know what I was doing, I was able to get teh hang of it and put everything together very nicely.

They prepainted everything...This is including the fenders which were metal, while the rest is poly.. everything was an absolute perfect match.

So I approve of this company.

In regards to the M5 fenders because I couldnt' find much information. They are pretty much OEM e60 fenders with the vents...If they were OEM M5 then you would need no liner too.. It may be flared a tiny bit at the top but nothing you're gonna notice.. Keep that in mind before spending the 600 like I did.. though I have no regrets.

here's a picture of the front. I'll post the rear soon as I take a good enough picture that I approve of.

Default Fenders

So your saying the M5 replica fenders are no wider then regular oem non M fenders? So instead of purchasing the M5 replica fender I can just cut the non M fender and install the vents and save the money?

You can get replicas for about, I think, $700 from NVD but last I heard you have to swap internals from the old mirrors or you can go OEM but thats anywhere from $800- $1000.

Yea i cant drop that much just on mirrors.. lol Ive spent enough. I actually dont mind the regular mirrors..

Yes the M5 fenders if they are wider I can't notice the differnce. I mean its cool that Umnitza offers them at least. Cause if you went with OEMs youd need wider wheel liner too which i priced at 20 per side. but yes if you can cut in the vents yourself you would not see a single diffence i dont think.
