Ok my short answer did not work. So here goes. You want The hood? You need the fenders and the front bumper cover to make it work. Save your money and buy a replica.

It will not make any difference if the bonnet came from and E90 or E92/93 M3 - they all share the same front end - the Bonnet will not fit!

BMW made the bonnet a few mm longer to stop this happening. You will need the wings and bumper etc to make it fit correctly.

A stock car with an M3 bonnet will look pretty crap IMO. Save your cash and put it into more suitable mods!

Why try and make the car into something it's not?

If that's what you want I see nothing wrong with it. But not only do you need the front bumper and fenders I think you also need the core support and a few other bits and pieces also.

Try this:

http://www.**********s.com/M3-Style-...MW-E90-E92.htm
http://www.**********s.com/Carbon-Fi...od-BMW-E90.htm

and match it with this:
http://www.**********s.com/BMW-E90-M...ont-Bumper.htm

about $2k in parts and paint unless you look around to find them pre painted and in good condition. This is the best way to make that mod work for you because it's these parts don't require you to change any of the mounting equipment.

it's alot of work. Long Tran did this for a memeber back in the day.
a 330.
do a search for the build.

there's a rep m3 hood - which is an alternative route.

good luck - ask if u have anymore question. oem hood does look very good.
