questions about Bumpers

Hi folks

I am having my car re sprayed and it is fully stripped down just now, my front bumper is cracked so i have to get another one i think not worth trying to fix it, i love the look of the rear m3 bumper but am i right in saying it wont fit because of the rear arches being more flared out than the ones i have already? i have a 318 coupe

thanks

You are right, but some members have been able to do it. Also, you can buy a rep made to fit your car with greater ease.
Look at the beginnig of the threads at the top of the page. there is a whole thread on M parts fitting on non M's

dont do it, it doesnt line up properly. Its much wider.
Even though some members have done it there's still a gap which doesnt look right.

okay thanks i thought this might be the case just wanted a second opinion, my front bumper has a big split in it from where a rabbit hit it was going to get the Mtech 2 bumper this is just a direct fitment isnt it? also i have noticed that some of them on ebay come with new fog lights, will me existing ones not fit it?

thanks
