Due to having a bodylift and him using the bumper brackets to raise the front bumper to stay level with the body, and the integrated bumper/valance the 2001+ trucks have, the body moves up and the towhooks stay in place as they are on the frame, the valance/bumper would have to be hacked into to keep the towhooks at their stock location.

exactly, the change in the front end, and in the paint is a result of bad accident in december, it was about 9000$ damage... i don't even want to know what the damage was to the 335xi? that i hit...

the grill was put in so that i can have lights behind it, that doesn't block ALL of the light... and the choice of that bumper, is so that i can take the valance off, without making it look terrible, by having the 2 drop sections around the fog lights in the first picture... this would allow me (origionally to have higher ground clearance before the lift) but will allow me to use my tow hooks without having to take my bumper off, as that is illegal here... as for the paint, the entire front end had to get painted anyways, so i tossed the body shop a few more dollars and paid the extra labour to have it sprayed a second colour...

thanks for all of the compliments, it's been a long process, and of course, it's not done yet...
