E92 front end swap on e90

I have an 07 e90 335xi.
My girlfriends dad manages a body shop and he has an e92 m3 hood, bumper, and headlights he wants to give me. What else would be needed to do a full front end seal besides fenders?
What other problems and issues will I run Into? Any and all advice and info is appreciated. I want to see what id be getting us into. If it's going to be too much work ill forget it.

The M3 is significantly wider up front than the non-M E9X. M3 exterior parts won't fit your car.

It's pretty easy if you think about it. All you need is the rest of the M3.

you will need, M3 coupe bumper reinforcement, radiator support, skirts.
Modifying hood and fenders is the hardest part.

Best bet would be to get E90 M3 hood and fenders. They are slightly different on E90 and E92 due to the body style. Bumper and headlights are the same.

You would need fenders too but even if you go through this project, you'd need to widen the rear fenders because it would look funny with M front fenders and non-M rear fenders..
