2010 m3 front bumper on e90 335i???

i came across a deal on a 2010 m3 OEM front bumper no grilles or lights just bumper and was wondering if anyone has tried fitment of it to see how it aligns with everything and if it will fit at all???

also came across 2008 m3 OEM front bumper and hood and was wondering same thing???

All info is greatly appreciated

Will not fit. The headlights are different and I believe the m3's front fenders are wider. If you had a coupe MAYBE. Definitley not an e90.

08 and 10 M3 bumpers are the same. And will not fit without a lot of work. Basically have to do a whole front conversion.

But basically as long as the whole front end is from oem m3 it will line up, that correct??

of course they'll line up... they're all meant to be together: bumper, fenders, headlights, hood and various under hood parts like... the hood latch to keep the hood closed.

that "deal" on a bare m3 bumper is a couple thousand dollar project to make it work properly.

your side skirt fitment will be off at the front fender since M3 fenders flare out at the wheel well.

It will not fit. I'm currently doing this conversion. You will need:

E9X M3 Front Bumper
E9X M3 Radiator Mount
E92 Headlights, retrofitting cables, and headlight bars
E90 M3 Front Fenders, and Fender Grills
E90 M3 Hood.

Not to mention sanding and painting and what not. This would be a good project though. Look up Creaminz's FRANKENSTINE car and it should give you a brief idea of what to expect.

Let me know if you decide to do this. I'll be willing to give you the part numbers and everything thanks to the help I've received from various other forum members!

huh? you said "whole front end from oem m3 it will line up" and then you say you were referring to the rest of the body instead? You started off the thread simply asking if the bumper by itself will fit...

I think you don't even understand what you're talking about.

after i understood i needed the whole front and not just the bumper, that idea was basically gone, and i know the fenders,hood and bumper all from a m3 would line up with each other i was referring to aligning them with the e90 body because i didn't know if just because i have the whole front-end it would just bolt straight to the newer front-end without any other modifications.

now do you understand.

Good lord man, use a period. Reading your sentence(s) is a headache. Confusion galore.
