Pre and Post facelift 3##i

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!

-Rob

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?
