E90 M3 Headlights on a E90 325i?

I bought an aftermarket E90 M3 bumper, and would like to buy E90 M3 headlights as well, does anyone know if they will require any modifications? My car is an 06 325i with factory xenon adaptive headlights.

The E90 M3 uses slightly modified e92 headlights (I beleive the wiring is different).

Aftermarket "M3 style" bumpers are designed just to look like an M3 bumper but work with the stock headlights.

There is absolutaly no way to put the e92 headlights onto an e90 "M3 style" bumper without extensive work. It would honestly be cheaper and better to pay around $7000 and convert the whole front with BMW parts to E90 M3 spec.

No I mean I want to buy stock E90 M3 headlights and put them on my 2006 325i E90. Is that possible? Would an 08 M3 E90 headlights work without any problems?

The M3 Sedan headlights are coupe headlights with different wiring. Coupe headlights will not fit any body panel on your front end, and will not fit "M3 style" front bumpers for the sedan.

there will be alot of major modification to do.
i would suggest you pm longtran, he has done a couple conversions of the e90 front to the e92 coupe front.
looks great but extremely expensive.

You can use OEM headlights from any E90 (328, 335, 330) both LCI and pre-LCI will work but NOT the M3 headlights.

The aftermarket M3 style bumpers for the E90 are designed for the standard E90 headlights. You will need to do a whole OE front end conversion to an M3 to use the E90 M3 headlights.

try searching e90.2 conversion, there's a few threads that go into detail about the conversion and what has to be done as far as headlights

For the record I've done an e90.2 conversion a few years ago. I have no idea why people are bringing that up, you have to replace all of the parts that are different on the M3 anyway when you do that conversion. An e90.2 conversion with an M3 style front bumper would just be redundant with an M3 conversion.
