Well, waddaya know... you really can find anything on eBay. We have no way of knowing for sure if this front bumper offered for auction on eBay Germany is really from a preproduction 2009 BMW 7 Series, but it sure looks the part based on spy shots and renderings that we've seen. We can't imagine just how somebody would end up with this particular piece, but we're having fun imagining a bit of dumpster-diving around the BMW design studio. One can't help but wonder where the rest of the car may be. Didn't anybody notice the missing front end?

The seller claims that the front bumper comes from a prototype next-gen 7 Series and prefers that the item be picked up in Munich. Want it? As of this writing, the high-bid is just 25.5 euros. Seems worth at least that much, assuming it's for real.

      ROFL! a Honda? No it'd look better on that one car called a BMW. If you're serious though, you'd better get to bidding!

      Any chance I can graft this onto the front of my 1996 Honda Civic sedan? It would be great sport running up the back of 3 series drivers, giving them the high beam move over signal, and then seeing the disgruntled looks on their faces as my Civc Express rolls on by.........................

      I heard the seller is offering a bumper to bumper warranty
        • 6 Years Ago
        Actually it's just a bumper .... warranty.

      I call B.S., those kidney grills look way too wide for a seven series; they take nearly 2/3 of the width of the bumper. It would be awesome if the seller gave dimensions, then we would have something more conclusive
        C money

        take a look at the CS concept...this is the design direction BMW is going in, like it or not. I would imagine BMW would go more conservative with this new 7er after all the negative feedback of the current gen.

      my... what huge nostrils you have.....
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yeah, and the headlight cut-outs (if that's what you call 'em) look a teeny bit like the Audi R8's.

      Who wants to bet that if this is real, BMW will either get it pulled by eBay or pay off the seller? Preproduction parts on eBay doesn't look too good for BMW.
