I found a parts car, a 97 528i. Owner claims it has genuine M5 bumpers and BBS rims.

I'd really appreciate your help to identify whether they are genuine or replica. My hunch is, the bumpers are replica.

Pics:

1) Front, no PDC.



2) Fog lights. "Good Co. brand?"



3) Rear bumper and spoiler. Spoiler definitely not meant for M5, probably a shorter version for E46 M3, most likely replica.



4) Rear Bumper second view. Please note the position of the central PDC sensors. Are there any version of OEM bumpers where the central PDC sensors are located within the moulding? Compare this with Silverstone Car.





5) Fitment

You can be doubly sure by pulling the rear plastic moulding off the bumper and looking at the stamp inside. Probably replicas.
