Lots of work, it is not just bumpers and skirts.

Is that your car?

Somebody here already did the conversion and made it clear that it's not a simple bolt-on job.

I personally, only long for the fender vents as I'm happy with the 3 series coupe styling (with some aero bits) as is.

This is a coworker's 335

The conversion besides the parts requires a lot of work. For example none of the 335 supports for the fenders line up. Rear bumper is a little wider, front radiator & bumper support is different, winshield fluid tank is also different, etc. I will keep track of it and get pictures of the progress.

yes, he is doing it after he got in to a wreck because an oil spill on the road. So he decided to do it since he had to replace the front parts, and the truck company responsible for the spill is paying.

Should have just bought an actual M3. I never see the point in these conversions.. I would have just gone with the full M-Tech kit.

or maybe he wantd a twin turbo over a v8, but wanted the beastly look of an m3 hell i think its a badass idea, im not 100% sure but i think the 335's motor prolly has a lot more potential cuz of the turbos n such!!!

You guys are stupid, the standard 335i -> m3 conversion arguments does not apply because he doesn't have to pay for the conversion himself, the insurance company does.
