M Tech Widebody?

Has anybody heard of or done a widened M Tech front bumper to fit M3 fenders? Im seeing a lot of M335i jobs lately and was wondering if anyone knew anything about widening the M Tech to fit, so as to avoid being an M3 copy? Nothing wrong with the M335i, but I think it'd be a cool way to put on the widebody and an aggressive face while keeping ///M badges and such off the car. Thanks for any help!

YUP... Project M has done this retrofit. actually was impressed and kinda tossing around if im wiling to pay for the mod bc i would have to buy new wheels or run spacers... e90 appears to have the quarterpanels to be wide enough where it doesn't look awkward.. much easier retrofit IMO

more of a custom work using OEM Mtech if im not mistaken. I only found out when i ordered his trunk skin and asked about m3 conversion. he responded asking if i was interested on his wide fenders instead to help lower the overall cost. he either email or text me pictures but cant seem to locate the messsge. will ask him to send the pics again.

Is there any way we can purchase the front and rear quarter panels from an M3 and ask a shop to add a mold to the rear and front bumper to match the widened panels?
