will an 04 M3 bumper fit 99 sedan?

Just trying to work out if a 04 M3 front bumper will fit my car. I would assume not but you never know. If it will fit, are any modifications or parts needed?

Yes but it doesn't say anything about different year bumpers, I'm assuming I couldn't get one off a 2012 M3 to fit my 99 sedan, right? I was hoping someone with actual experience would chime in

All e46 m3 bumpers are the same. It would be easier if you just bought a replica. An oem m3 bumper will be too wide for a non M

Not worth the hassle, just get an aftermarket one for sedans.

A 2012 M3 is a completely different car. There is no chance of this happening. Plus, it would look horrible.

If I gotta order it, MtechII it is! You guys with sedans, where besides Khoalty can I get one reasonably priced? Or even the CSL for that matter, slip pickins in the classifieds

Just spoke with a Tim over there, he said he could get it out tonight if I call before 7 but they ship greyhound and it wouldn't get here until Friday. I was hoping for tuesday-wednesday-ish. We'll see, I still have time. How was the fit, need a lot of tweaking?

I missed the boat on ordering tonight but after you confirmed a decent fit I will be ordering this week. I'll just have to learn to be patient. Thanks for the info.

I recommend ordering the Mtech II, we have a lot of sedans in stock. And we can prepaint.
