Poor's man M3 conversion.

Well i started with one fender today. Look very promising.

I was afraid to start this little project when i read that you need to change out all the mounting brackets, headlight brackets, radiator mount, and hood. After trying everything out, it looks like it fits 98% without changing a thing.

One thing i know i have to change is the windshield fluid tank. It is blocking the vent on the m3 fenders.

The fender are a little longer but i am just planning to moving teh hood up a couple mm and grind down teh fenders a couple mm. No oem m3 hood needed.

i really think teh 335 fog with definately fit on the m3 bum with very little mod too.

Material - cost
- oem m3 fenders ( bought on ebay ) 350 shipped painter silver. Too bad i have AW.

- oem m3 bumper (gray) 310 shipped

total cost 660

paint 250

additional parts.

-reflector 25 used
-side grill 30 used
-windshiedld washer resieviour 40
------------------------------------------
$1005

5hr labor - free

flies "getting it on" PRICELESS - page 4
Now here are the pictures. Going to get them painted tomorrow and finishing up the install soon.

i saw those fenders on ebay too. The ironic part is that vendor was selling them because he was ALSO trying to retrofit them on an E92. Had them painted and all.

Good luck. I would get the M3 Headlight brackets though, or else you will have two more gaping wholes up there.

The brackets need to be changed in order for those gaps to be fixed. If you do not care about the gaps, then you do not need to change them. Just file/shave here and there like you plan. Just hope you do it straight and symmetric on both sides. As long as you like it--go for it!
