E92: Will a Pre-LCI rear bumper fit on a LCI?

I tried a search but didn't find a direct answer... I know that I'm not the best forumer though, so sorry if this is a repost.

I know usually people try to put newer parts on their cars, but there is a unique opportunity for a rear bumper project that I'm interested in, the only reservation is if the Pre-LCI rear bumper will fit on my LCI.

I know the fronts are different, but haven't seen much topic on the rear as a direct fit or not.


Thank you all for your help!

Bummer. I thought that the quarter panels, tail lights, and trunk were the same. So all of the "edges" would line up.

Oh well... thank you for your prompt reply!

I would continue to look into this. I know for a fact the front needs more than just a bumper swap "headlights for example" but the rear tail lights on the e92 are both the same from e92 pre to lci.

Gator,

It sounds like we have the same understanding. As I know there is a lot of information about the front, but I'm lacking in my searches about the rear.

The front bumpers won't swap, understood... but I'm only concerned about the rear bumper, if the adjacenct panels have the same dimensions on both LCI and Pre-LCI, then it's just a mounting question, no?

E90 & E92 rear bumper between the PRE LCI & LCI are interchangeable. E92 LCI & PRE will fit E92, E90 LCI & PRE will fit E90. You may need to change the rear guides though for best fitment. PRE LCI have different side guides opposed to the LCI. Other than that it's pretty straight forward swap.

Best,
Jay
