You might consider to make a few notations/additions or possible changes for people who might not know.
*The early coupes have clip-in front turn signals. These will not swap with the screw-in type holders of other later model M3 coupes.
*One should get two more rear upper side clips for the M3 sideskirt retrofit as the non-M3 doesn't have them and it'll stick out.
"SAFE ALTERNATIVES" to the M3 rear lip spolier for Sedan would be the M-tech sedan rear lip spoiler (aka sedan ZHP rear lip spoiler #51717894050 $147.31). The trunks did change somewhat on the models, the trunk handle(over the LP) was much longer on facelifted years.
*And although the M3 Oval rear view mirror will retrofit without mods, to have all functions work might require some rewiring.
