2012/2013 Hood on e90 LCI?

I love my 2009 335i sedan, but I'm not a huge fan of the LCI hood design with it's sharp lines right through the middle. I really dig the hood design on the new 2013 3 Series. Anyone know of an aftermarket manufacturer that make's an e90 hood similar in style to the 2013's?

There is a zero percent chance it will fit.

I know the stock BMW hood won't fit, I was wondering if anyone knew of an aftermarket manufacturer that makes a hood for the e90 which is similar to the style of the new hood.

First time I ever heard of someone not liking the E90 LCI hood.. Much better then the 12/13 hoods.

I traded in my 2004 e46 sedan for my '09 335, perhaps the style transition is too radical for me to handle. Don't get me wrong, the LCI hood has been growing on me since I got the car a few weeks ago, I'm just looking to see what's out there.

The LCI hood is one of the big reasons why I paid extra and got an 09 E90 over an 08 E90... Pre-LCI hoods with their mustache make me puke

And the new F30's hood isn't that good looking either.. Looks like a fat cousin of the LCI one.

Here's a good solution: Snag an M3 hood haha those are sweet

Trade your 09 for an 06-08 (pre-lci). You'll loose the extra lines on the hood and gain a slightly awkward looking kidney grille.

F30 grille is meh IMHO. I hope they fix it with the LCI.
