I have just fitted my aerokit rear bumper but i have a few questions to ask:

1, The bumper seems to be just touching the exhausts, i am running a miltek system. Has anyone had this problem?

2, The bottom of the bumper seems to flex alot as the bottom lower mount is not used by the aero bumper. Has anyone fitted a bracket to secure it, if so where did you get it from?

Thanks

Carl

yep both are normal i have aero millteck on my S and it rubs some do the flex is down to a bolt being missing that the dealers never supply i think, my fitting guys are ex bmw so i hope to have a fix for you next week as there looking into mine to see how much they can adjust the milly

Thanks for that information.
Has your miltek ever melted a bit of your bumper?

I took a file to the mount in the middle because the bumper was vibrating against it, which has stopped that but yes the milltek does just touch the bumper.

they reckon its a case of bmw being lazy and not fitting a certain bolt but also the fact that the exhausts all hang different, this fix may involve a large pry bar ;) i think we can come up with a non violent fix though

sorry to revive, but the Aero does use the centre rear bracket. It requires an additional £4 bracket piece from BMW to fit the aero bumper.
