03 330ci lights in a 03 325xi ?

Some one near here has projectors from an 03 330i, I'm wondering if they would fit my 03 325xi. I thought I read the coupe lights were different than sedan and wagon.

Anyone know for sure ?

THanks, I saw this in the M3 parts on a non-M3 thread and had hope

- Headlights can be fitted to sedan if the lenses and headlight trim pieces are swapped.

Projectors would fit. As well as the whole assembly if the coupe isn't a facelift.

You need the lower mounting part for the coupe headlights to work on a sedan.

I have headlights from an m3 coupe on my sedan that I used to fix my burnt ZKW's
