The bumper for my 1986 528e arrived today and it is spotless! Thank you so much for the quick shipment and for the care you put into the preparation and delivery. You were very detailed as to the condition before I purchased it and it arrived in even better condition than I expected. I will be in touch for needs as they arrive in the future. Much appreciated. -- KP

Thanks again for the great service! I'll be looking for you if I need anything else! -- JG

When buying a bumper for an E28, and the focus is on the metal section, then buying a part that already has the rubber impact strip attached might be a mistake.

I recently had a customer who desperately needed a bumper, so I bought a used part to pass along to him. It seemed to be in great condition until I removed the rubber impact strip, and saw some stress cracks that had been obscured.
