Hi all

well, after noticing the newer front end on the 3 series differing from the early models (like my 2006), i want to know if its possible to swap that new front end over to the older model.

bumper, grill, hood obviously, but would be be direct fitment or would a little tinkering be required.

thank you!

Ya it could be done but why would you? Just sell or trade yours and put the funds towards the 2009+ purchase. The 2009+ car has a lot of other improvements too.

Let's see, you want to spend your cash on a different hood, grille, bumper, and I assume the gorgeous LED signal front headlights, but you wouldn't spend your cash to get those and all the other benefits of the 2009?

its possible but you'd be spending quite a bit of money. people have turned preface lift 335's into m3's for god knows what reason.
