PreLCI/LCI question. Body shop help.....

Hello,

I have a 07 e90 and I need a new front bumper. I was wondering how hard is it to go to a LCI mtech front? I know that the hood needs to be replace but everything else fits right?

This person just changed the hood: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=504040

Just asking for opinions because I'm curious and I don't want to start something and find out I need new fenders and headlights as well.

-Dan

If you have m-tech right now it's a straight swap and just need hood, bumper and grills.

Hmmm...In that case, I'm not sure. I think M-Tech changes a couple of things like the underbody panel and some structural stuff. I'm not sure though! Maybe someone else can chime in that knows for sure.

On page 2 post #43, he has a full parts list. Liner and brake ducts should be different though since you have 335i.
