Default Z3M & Z3 AC Schnitzer front bumper

Hi all
I have seen an AC Schnitzer front bumper on ebay.
Does anyone know if they are as rare as suggested?

ACS produced a whole front bumper, not just the aero trim that many of us have fitted?

IMO it doesn't look great. Gives the front a daft smiling face. And I'm not keen on the addition of the front fog lamps. Fog lamps are now being incorporated in to headlights to give a tidier look (like newer M Cars) and thus the M Coupe, unusual at the time for not having front fog lamps, is actually more contemporary!

It looks as though essentially the bumper shape is the M bumper with the ACS splitters moulded in which would be great, but the centre section has been restyled and ruins the potential. What they should have done is kept the overal M shape but made the bumper deeper whilst adding the splitters.

I don't mind it but only really suits a roadster not coupe, the standard M bumper with ACS flippers and especially the fog lights looks much more aggressive helped by the slightly wider design of the flippers.

I have read the fit isn't as good as original bumpers but have never seen one in the flesh.
