    How is it done and how much?

    This M3 has a CSL V1 front bumper. The owner got the whole on the left side filled by a shop. I'm curious on how much this would cost to get done, and how exactly they fill it.

    To have a competent shop do that is not difficult. I don't know what the cost is.

    I also believe there are entire bumpers just sold without the hole, as in, solid piece.

    I tried looking around, couldn't find a full set.

    Between that at these two which do you prefer?

    Personally like it better with the fogs. Without it doesn't seem OEM, and less agressive. My 2c.

    I was feeling the mtech II as well, I'd get the cf splitters as well. The csl with the hole was my 3rd choice. So I was mostly deciding between the hole delete or mtech II.

    IMO it's not even a comparison. The CSL is in a whole different league than the mtech. And personally I prefer it with the one hole in place.

    If you do want it covered up. I wouldn't pay for than $500 for that, $350 would be a GOOD price

    Hmm well I saw a car in the random gallery, hopefully cheeksx36 doesn't mind that I did this. I got to say I'm really liking how it looks.

    I used paint so it isn't the best edit.

    I agree, CSL without a doubt.

    But the CSL bumper is meant for the CSL, just seems wrong to me to put it on anything else :/.

    Yeah, I'll probably go with the hole delete most likely.
