My Ride: BMW e46 4d facelift
BMW E46 Rear bumper M3 style

hello guys...I watched all the projects and decided to install a replica which stands for two-door model as some say, but I see no difference between the four door or two. which I have slightly modified as you see in the pictures, because honestly I like the original M3, but not satisfied as shown installed on non M
this is just my opinion...but you guys have done the impossible, here where I live nobody even tried to do it.

You can see all my project on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/user/lilikgreek?feature=mhum

I have decided to go ahead and modify the spare tire well and go with an M3 rear section to match my custom m3/mtech ii touring bumper

Alexte, that looks soooo aggressive. How much did you get the m3 rear for? 330izhp I've seen someone on this forum with an m3 rear and he still had his spare tire well, i dont know how he did but he made the tips sit flush with the diffuser.

http://www.e46fanatics.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=482414

No thats not a real m3, just a full m3 exterior conversion, even the rear fenders. I'd probably wrap the exhaust part under the tire well in header tape, just to be safe
