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

E28 Front Bumper Rubber Impact Strip Assembly Issues

Parts Group: Bumper impact rubber stripping

Although most of the fit is intuitively obvious, I still managed to wonder which side is "up" as to these parts. Eventually, I figured out that the rectangular holes in the metal main section, for the lights, are toward the bottom of the bumper. The unbroken section of the rubber impact strip goes along the top of the bumper, above the light -- almost like an eyebrow.
