M3 E92 Front End Conversion

Who here has done the full M3 front end conversion???? Trying to get this done in the next two months and need to know what parts are all needed?

Thus far Ive gathere

1) Side Fenders
2) Front Bumper
3) Hood

I've read something about headlight brackets as well... Can anyone shed some light on this conversion? Any help would be most appriciated!

If I wanted to go that route I would have already. The purpose of me doing this is to fit the Carbon Fiber M3 bumper. In addition to widening the rear end. Car is my show car, and nothing special about doing a M3 rep............. Just saying, you can go the cheap route, just not for me.

No fun that way sir.... Im already 20k+ in mods in this. I have goals for this project before I move on to the next project car. FYI been looking at M for a daily driver, not a show car.

Thats what Im trying to figure out now...... I would imagine so with swapping out the fenders. The side skirts wont be an issue, because they are widening out the sides for the widebody, the front conversion is just a foundation to start the width and to line up the new bumper I have properly.

You can buy the M3 front bumper and fit it in BUT they may be require to some cutting and such. Hit up Long at LTBMW.com He can build you one that is made to fit for a good price

A new windshield washer bottle will likely be req'd.

An m3 radiator support will also make the job 5 million times easier, you can pull it off without it, but it will be WAY harder and a lot more frustrating.
