Nope. You forfeit the prize. As you said you are not keeping from looking like a poser. All that, plus your car looks like a turd sandwich only without the bread.

Why would you want to? That, plus how would you stretch them? The door opening on the coupe is much longer than the sedan.

Modification to the way the bumper mounts to the car. As described.

That said, how to modify the way the bumper mounts on the car so it can be flush?? I dont mind the tiny bit of bumper overlapping fender, but do mind the front having a gap between the headlights and bumper

Ok...

I read all 27 pages, and I'm nearly 100% certain that I didn't miss it.

I installed M3 side skirts on my 2004 330 cab, and in the front the skirt doesn't line up to the fender liner, leaving a "hole" where the skirt and liner no longer meet up. I'm worried because this is going to let a whole bunch of snow and salt in where it can sit all winter.... Has anyone else run into this issue? And if so how did you fix it? Or did you just leave it? I was considering plastic welding M3 fender liners to mine to make up for the gap, or just cut up some fenders liners from work.

Any other thoughts?

Thanks a lot,

Susannah

For OEM M3 side skirts, you need all OEM parts that go along with them..

- OEM M3 clips (different from non-M clips)
- 2 black plastic cover pieces (don't fit perfect on sedans)

reference www.realoem.com ..

so I saw on a certain web site that the facelifted 330i fenders will fit the e46 M3 hood nicely.
Can anyone confirm this?

I tend to believe you because I would think I would see it on more
face-lifted cars if it did fit. thanks for the response

"The site is selling the hood" makes me think aftermarket. Which doesn't apply to this thread.

Regardless, all sedan hoods and fenders are interchangeable. There's no real difference between any part of the prefacelift or facelift fenders besides the corners and sidemarkers. You can put a facelift sedan hood on a prefacelift sedan with no issues. You can put a facelift coupe hood on a prefacelift coupe with zero issues. You can't cross-breed between coupe and sedan though.

litle help please

First sorry for my English ... and error to come

I recently had the misfortune to be hit by someone who has not complied with STOP indicator.
My car is an E46 convertible and want to do list for M3 parts:

front wings
wings back
front hood
side skirts
front bumper
rear bumper


I need some prices and some links would be ideal
It is NOT important that parts be new ... car will be fully painted ... and i want to change the color

Thank you for your answers.
