I want to upgrade my rear!! anyone got any suggestions on good looking rear bumpers/skirts?

For me, what looks best for the ti is the Mtec rear bumper.
I just got one from ebay.co.uk.
It's currently being repaited at the shop.

I like the reiger GTR one a lot too. Along with their sideskirts. Looks awesome.

what do i have to do to fit an M3 bumper to my little compact? is it a straight swap or do i have to fabricate mountings?

i love the reiger stuff but its a bit pricey.

If it's the M3 type bumper for the ti, same as mine it's a straight fit.
The coupe M3 bumper won't fit.

You have to get the M-Tech apron that specific to the Compact. Here's the OEM part number: 51-12-9-402-928. Also, make sure you get the diffuser with it.

The install is straightfoward, but some of the fasteners on the inside of the bumper can be difficult to remove. I just installed mine this weekend, and it took a couple of hours to do the whole job.

When I was looking @ rear bumpers, I directly contacted the people from Huthmann. Basically, it's a really expensive rear apron that they dont make anymore! They have a version 2 that looks like crap. So I settled for the Reiger. I'm going for the whole rieger theme, which I think lots hott on a 'ti'.

250 pounds is around 440-450 USD, if I have my conversion rate right.
