I am doing wide body to the rear of my car and I like the look of the m3 wide front. I will leave the 335 badge on so relax guys lol

I have a 2010 e90 335i lci
So far I got these things

E9x m3 hood
E9x m3 bumper
E92 headlights
E9x m3 side skirts

I am waiting on the fenders

I believe you need E90 hood and Definitely need E90 front wings, as they meet the shape of the car which is different to the E92/3.

You'll need headlight brackets also, and all the trims associated with the front end, arch liners, grilles etc.

The rear will be a custom wide body to m3 specs with the mtech rear. And I will use OEM m3 side skirts then.

Front is not so bad. Basically, bumper, 2 e92 lights, fenders, bumper reinforcement and hood.

And all the associated brackets and trims. Enter your VIN on realOEM.com and look at the parts for the entire front clip/undertray. Then compare the part numbers to a M3 and you'll see it's more than just the lights and body skin components.

Oh wow brackets and trims

Radiator support, bumper reinforcement and fender brackets and coolant relocation tank. E90 m3 headlight arms and fender liners for LH and RH side with oil cooler duct.

Not much at all basic components that would obviously be different considering the difference in the cars.

This is going to be my 5th E9X i have done the full mtech, m3 rep, oem+, etc, etc, this is something new i want to try. The end point of this conversion is to get a nice looking wide 335. I could careless about M3 but it looks nice and aggressive the parts are easy to convert to 335 and I think the 335 modded can pull it off. Now a 328i widebody would be just silly.
