I just realized what COTM means. The references in the first of the thread where throwing me off. Need to get head out of the gutter.

Rear:

Bumper
Bumper guide
Steel wheelhouse
plastic wheelhouse
quarterpanel
M3 style exhaust
(if not 335 then also M3 trunk floor)

Mid:

Rockerpanels
Exactly, but M3 rocker panels also require M3 fenders... which require M3 bumper =D It's a vicious circle. Possibly try to use some M3 rocker panels that are meant for regular E92, i think they might line up more nicely.

Wow, just awesome. I heard this couldn't be done, but I guess since you got most all the M3 body pieces, it works. For some reason I thought this would cost much much more than what you spent.

So please forgive me for this noobish question, as I started collating all the answers to find I'd have several holes to fill anyway. But how were you able to do this for 5K?? Could you please summarize perhaps?, and list all the pieces you changed out? Not just the body panels that are already listed, but any other structural things, like for example, Did the spacers get you the correct wider stance for the wheels or did you have to go more drastic like changing the axles?

Much appreciated if you could! I'm just like you in that I love the way the M3 looks, especially the stance and the wider wheel wells, but I prefer the way the 335i drives.

HAH! Laughs at self... Sorry, just came across the post where you basically did this already. Why I should have just . Please forgive, but the wheel stance question? I never found the answer to that. Recapping, how did you widen the wheel stance? Spacers/axles?

No spacers in the pictures, M3 wheels are okay without ones. But i'm currently running 25mm in front and 12mm in the rear. But better way ofc is the get some dope rims with the correct offsets. I have been running to into some financial issues with the goverment (fining me over $20k ) so I haven't gotten any rims yet. Now I ordered set of Varrstöen LM-R looks at 9,5 and 10,5 width. But the car is on sale anyways, if nobody takes it before I get the rims then i'll just keep it

are you kidding? I bet he could have bought an M3 but thats beyond the point because its his car and he wants to mod it that way.Plus he said he's planning to get away from the typical OEM M3 look as he continues modding. someone who puts that much effort and work into his car like OP's deserves respect and not some stupid comment on how he should just buy an M3 instead of making his own unique car. That's why I have respect for guys like OP and Creaminz
