Question: 2004 coupe front end on 2002 sedan?

Not sure if this is in the right place, if it's not can you guys point me in the right direction? Thanks! Anyways... I love the 2004 330i facelift waaayyy better than the 325i facelift. So I'm wondering if it can be done? Would the fenders, hood and bumper be able to me mounted on? I don't plan on doing this anytime but if it's possible would definitely love to try out

Coupe and Sedan cannot be mixed. 330 facelift and 325 facelift should be the same, but the coupe and sedan facelifts can be different. The fenders and hood of the coupe are longer than the same parts on the sedan.

The door line between the coupe and the sedan are different which means it wont fit. Someone on this forum cut the front half of a coupe fender and welded it to the rear half of the sedan fender and somehow got it to fit, but thats a lot of work

I've been searching the forum for that post but it won't pop up... I have a buddy that is kinda good with welding... i wouldn't mind trying it out on some junkyard fenders!

Epic fail.

Sorry. that's harsh. But it's also true. If you like the coupe, dump the sedan and roll the money over to a car that you like. Nobody works for free for very long, and anybody that does work for free will not do this job well enough that you can resell it later.

Epic fail. There oughta be a law.

Coupe bumpers are wider than sedan bumpers as well.
