the M3 convertible and the M3 coupe have the same part number for the sideskirts. So it's the same question as if E46 M3 sideskirts will fit a E46 Coupe which is on the first page of the thread.
Yes

Can I use my stock 2005 325i foglights with an mtech II bumper or are they shaped differently? If so what can be done and brackets or anything?

thread is "How To Fit OEM M3 Parts To A Non-M"

you're talking "OEM" but not "M3".
wrong thread

No , M52 uses a throttle cable but the S54 uses an electric motor.

Aswell as you'd have lots of physical problems fitting it the performance boost isnt that much, the head is where the S54 makes its power.

So, swapping M3 coupe seats into a sedan requires the transfer of the sedan seat outer rails onto the M3 seats. But can you transfer both the inner and outer rails from the sedan seat on to the M3 seat? I've got a chance to buy some M3 coupe seats but the rails aren't included. Thanks

Unbolt current, bolt in m3

If your car has MF then the M3 wheel controls will work from what i know.
If not then you cant expect it to with the M3 one(since it's often not prewired).

If I remember right, the inner rails are the same, which is why the outers are the only ones that need to be swapped.

Ok so i have a 02 330Ci and i have a OEM m3 bumper from a 02 M3 ( this is the m3 bumper with the foam stuck inside of it). My question is what is the best way to get my stock rebar to fit onto the m3 bumper. I have already started to shave down the foam bar with my dremel and it seems like its gonna take years to do as the dremel only can do so much at a time i was gonna shave this down and jb welb it to my rebar.... I am wanting to to just take the whole foam part out but then im left with a bumper cover and rebar and i dont (think) jb welding them togather would work or would it? . I know im gonna cut my rebar on both ends down a inch or so to get it flush with the fenders.

HAS ANYBODY DONE THIS? IM SURE SOMEONE HAS AND I JUST NEED SOME INPUT IM STARTED TO GET PISS3D HAHA.

Not a good idea, you would be spending a lot of money to do a 'reverse retrofit' from OEM M3 bumper to Non-OEM/Non-M3 bumper. Get a used one on craigslist or the forum for a couple hundred bucks.

They should, as long as they're shorter. e36 M3 front endlinks are equivalent to the shorter ones that come with KW V2 coilovers, which is what I have in my car. Endlinks are very very similar between all the e46 3 series and e36 M3, plus probably e39s and more. The key is the length, they can't be longer than the e46 links or they'll hit the control arm. Shorter endlinks help the sway bars function better when the car is lowered, less preload.

You're using a dremel on the re-bar? Damn. That's a lot of work when a sawzall or cutoff wheel can zip it apart in a minute or two. Yeah you have to cut it down quite a bit and use glue if you stick with the non-M rebar.
