M3 hood on ZHP coupe - it can be done!

Been researching this for the past week and noticed alot of back and forth about "is it possible?" I stumbled on a great deal for an OEM M3 hood via CL and got it on today. I had one on my old 330 but couldn't swap hoods in time

The fitment is about an 8.5-9/10. It's about as good as it gets without any modification (only need a ratchet and a torx bit). Took about 45 min. of tweaking the guides screws and pulling the fender about about 2-3 cm. There's a small gap above the headlights towards the inside (kidney grills) but its not that noticeable. I got some rubber lining and 3M double-sided tape that I'm going to use to close it a bit. If all goes well it should look like an extension of the rubber headlight lining.

Let me know what you guys think
