BMW X3 E83 Front bumper question.

I have just acquired a 04 X3 for my wife. The front bumper has some damages on it and also has holes for the front tag. I dont need a front tag and like to keep it clean and looking sleeker. I would like to know if the E83 Bumper up to 2010 will bolt up???

If someone has a Front bumper. PM me..

I was hoping that someone in the board was able to answer my question. But eventually I was able to fit a 2010 front bumper in my 04. It was a direct bolt on with no Modification.



I will post pics when its finish from painting.

Any DIY instructions on how to do it? My front bumper was the same way with the license plate holes

Its very easy. Just remove the 3 bolts on the top and 2 by Front lower Grill. remove 2 bolts on each side of the fender corners and also the ones holding the Splash shield. Once those are off you can unclip the side by the fender corner to remove the bumper. Here is a Pic of my 04 with the 2010 Front bumper. The 2010 front bumper it totally different fog lights and grill. so you will need everything from the 2010. I like it better since its much nicer and cleaner.
