2010 bumper fit a 2006?

Sorry if a million others have already asked this.

I am after doing a front end conversion on a 2006 saloon, i think its called an LCI conversion i did a quick search on the forum but didnt seem to get the right results

simply put whats involved? ie are they all direct swap?
Headlights, Rear lights, Bumpers, (bonnet is it different???)
For example if i where to do in stages will the 2010 bumper fit a 2006 headlight set up?

i understand the lci lights need to be programme due to the led indicators, is this as simple as getting one of our coding friends on the forum to sort it for me?

Front LCI conversion on E90:
1- Bonnet
2- Bumper
3- Fog lights adaptor
4- LCI headlight (pre-LCI headlights can be fitted as well but then its not LCI conversion)

Rear Coversion:
1- Trunk Lid
2- LCI rear lights
3- Adaptors for the lights or you can swith the wires in OEM connectors

If you are swithcing from Pre-LCI halogen headlights to LCI halogen headlights, coding is not required.
If you are switching from Pre-LCI xenon to LCI xenon headlights, you will require coding and possible light module upgrade.
For tail lights, coding is must.

HTH.

Doesn't the lci bumper fit straight onth the preface lift? I am sure that I have seen this done before? I need to replace my front bumper, I am seriously considering slapping the LCI bumper on and leaving it at that.

The front bumper (m sport) will not fit straight on...you will need to get the conversion done or stick to the pre lci

+1

Pre LCI bonnet comes with eye brows. So if you fit LCI bumper on Pre-LCI car, you will struggle to close your bonnet.
