I don't really understand why you would make a thread. If ebay says it wont fit find something that will. Putting these pieces on your car will make anybody who knows anything about BMW laugh at you and think of you as an idiot. But hey, it's your money...use it when you need it.

Eh, let him pose as an M3 all he wants. I love seeing poser M3's out and about. The bumper looks dumb with the skinny non'M fenders. It doesn't flow.

My Ride: M3 & 323Ci (sold)
i would suggest like others have to go the M-Tech II version. it's close to the M3 look by being still sporty but not as aggressive.
but if you want to go the M3 aggressive look as someone posted get the aftermarket M3 front bumper for the 2dr (coupes). the M3 hoods will fit with some finesse' on coupes but the fenders need to be raised and then moved out at the back by windshield to fit right. sideskirt be it M-Tech II or M3 are direct fit, mirrors willl fit. rear bumper in some aftermarket version might fit. not sure if it's become better quality but past have been horrible. then there is the matter of the rear exhaust tips be it single side on left or if it's going to be quad four like M3. (latter is some work to make). rear lip trunk spoiler is a direct fit or CSL trunk.

look at the Stickied thread at top of page on M3 part swapping. really think about how far you want to go with this and the costs you are willing to outlay.

what i don't suggest you do is get real M3 wheels in staggered and fit them on your coupe. offset if wrong and it looks SO LAME. not to mention function is out the door.
