Where can I find M3 fenders that fit good?

Other than finding a wrecked M3 are there any sites I can get M3 fenders from that have good fitment?

If you took from a wrecked M3 you'd have to do a wide body conversion since they're wider than 335's. You need to look for a M3 rep fender made for a 335

Just my 2cents on how I would find it.

1) Go to where cars get repaired.
Like a body shop....a cheap Honda repair shop....or even a Toyota.
Take a pack of smokes with you....lol.
Strike up a conversation.

Start talking to someone and ask him, where can I get a:
CAPA certified fender for a 2008 civic 4dr.
Left.

In Canada there is APT auto parts.
Pro body parts.

Then look up that company and ask for fender for your car.
M series, not sure where.
But reg BMW parts are available.

Now don't mention BMW to your new smoke buddy....lol
He wont know where to go for it.
Most likely.

Ps: I rebuilt BMWs only.
I strongly recommend getting from wrecker, as you will get OEM.

Most certified fitment parts are ok, but, there is no substitute, for OEM.
There is always something off.
Hardly noticeable, but if I point it out, then it will eat you forever.

Regards,
DN

From a quick search I think you can do OEM fenders but you'll need an OEM m3 front bumper too. Might look weird though since the front will be really wide and your back will be normal. I haven't really been able to find any places in the US selling M3 fenders for the 335 but here's one somewhere

Swapping to M3 fenders would also require the M3 fender liners, bumpers, and sideskirts to actually fit the widened fenders. Or at the very least, have the body shop remold the existing bumper. Then you also need the miscellaneous nuts, bolts, and brackets. Overall it's not as easy as just swapping the fenders.

Hmm I like but I don't like companies that you have to email and there's no phone number.

you will also need a windshield wiper reservoir, and splices for lights.
