330ci conversion to M3

Hey I'm kinda new to the bmw game but here is what i. Need help with;

I got a 2002 bmw 330ci convertible, and I had the whole front end (including bumper,hood,fenders,side mirrors) redone to make a look alike m3 and now I'm working on the rear end, I just had my rear tire hub cut out and had a m3 exhaust system welded on, now my question is if I got a m3 convertible rear bumper, would it line up with no modifications?

Generally no, there's a diy on it, re M3 rear bumper and fender flares are wider then the 330ci and there is a noticeable difference where it meets the fender. I was going to do it with my 330ci coupe but I didn't want the difference at the fenders. The only way to avoid this problem is to get M3 rear quarters, but that's alot more work than its worth, check the diy for the conversion. My best advice is go with an aftermarket rear bumper made for your car that supports the quad exhaust

Ya that's what I figured, I also herd you can cut the corners off my stock bumper and fiberglass them on the m3 one, but I'm going to talk to my auto body and see what they think, thanx for the info
