What you're suggesting has been done countless times with e90m3 rear cover adapted to e91 rear end. It's very doable, takes a lot of time and obviously $$$. The final product can be good, but the first time you get bumped, you'll be doing it again.

I would advise you against it in this case where you can buy one off the shelf without any issues. I've bought probably 15 of them in the recent months/years.
I understand your points, but the math here is:
- new bumper from dealer (CAD$1240 + tax) = $1426 (https://shop.bmw.ca/p/BMW__/Bumper-t...127907255.html)
- paint: $400
- DIY install

So, I have a $1826 incentive to attempt this as DIY and perhaps do this for half price.
