Go for it

I don't think it will make the car look any faster, but it will make it look like it's your car

Thing is the top of the grill on the E92 meets a body line. The body line on the E46 is higher. The grill on the E92 ends that body line while on the E46 the line extends to where the fender arch begins. That's why it would look out of place just like the grills on the Kia Optima look out of place. They're just "there" with no real consideration for the lines of the car.

I stared at the side of my M3 for a minute and envisioned it. I couldn't see how it would look good. Opinion of course, but that's what you asked for.

Ah I see. So gathering here is that you want to get an E46 M3 complete guard and then gut it for the E92 M3 grill? At least it'd make for a nice build thread. Apologies for being so negative earlier, wasn't in the best mood ever.

Its like you cant wait for some poor guy to ask about a cooling system so you can post I told ya so, I told ya so, Replace the entire cooling system, I told ya so.... And really, Why go through such trouble to make a negative remark the picture of the car... Your trying so hard, and im not sure why... Maybe your just havin a bad day, everyday/ but your kinda like the kid from 4th grade who had to 1 up everyone and have the last word.. Its just.. lame.
Sorry, went off on a tangent there.. Ive been bed ridden for the past few days and its getting to me. Thanks for the input.
LOL! Don't worry, E46Mango's just about picked on everyone's car but his own. Hell, even mine.
