LCI Hood Retrofit Question

Would a hood off a 2009 or newer 3 series e90 sedan fit on lower model, like a 2007? I kinda like the bodylines on the newer hoods. I wasnt sure if the headlights were the same or not.

do a search for pre-LCI to LCI conversions. The LCI hood WILL fit the pre-LCI body, however the front bumper doesn't match up because the grills on the pre-LCI and LCI are way different. Also you would not have to change out the headlights.

I like it too. Can't bother with the hassle, though.

There aren't really any front bumpers for the LCI ... people have modded the pre-lci m3 style bumpers to fit their LCI models though, you might want to check that out!

Also interested here. What about hood latch components? Anybody have a ballpark price on what it might cost? $1500, $2000?
