Default Rear bumper retrofit & wrap

I'm looking for a shop that would something like this:

http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1094108

Basically, replace the M Sport rear bumper on my 335i GT with the no-line version and paint or wrap part of the new bumper to create the appearance of a diffuser.

I've tried pining Details Ltd. via the form on their web site, but I haven't received a response. Anyone have an email for them or a different recommendation?

It's 2015. I'm simply not interested in doing business with a business that can't/won't communicate via email.

I don't want to speak for Details, but in the past they have been reticent to do aftermarket work exclusively, because it often ends up with something not fitting right because the manufacturing is poor, or the customer is not happy with the results when it's not Details fault, etc. That said, I know they have done some aftermarket work for people on the board, so you may wish to find out. They do great work.

My intention is to use all OEM parts. The only non-OEM bits will be the paint/wrap on the lower part of the rear bumper, to create the diffuser visual, and the custom exhaust tips that are already installed.

Of course, it's all dependant on finding someone who uses email ...

Would it not benefit you to talk to them and than have them follow up with an email quote? I understand your want for your choice of communication but turning down business to a company that many people have told you is one of the best around simply because a lack of an email seems to make no sense to me.

Obviously its your money and you can go where you want based on any reasoning you want its just my 2 cents.

Your money, your call. I actually like the personal touch and talking to a person. Bottom line is they do great work and give sound advise. Both hard to find in today's world. Good luck in your search.
