Hi there. I have a 2004 330ci with a messed up front end. I was thinking of replacing the body panels with m3 or carbon fiber. Does anyone know if the m3 coupe parts will bolt on?

Search up fitting e46 M3 parts on 330ci. There are many good threads on what you can/can’t do and how to do it. There is one mega thread going over M3 specific part and how difficult it is to fit on non-M cars and which are compatible to what.

The M3 panels (would be helpful if you told us which ones you'd like to swap) will likely bolt up, but there's a bunch of plastics - brake ducts, fender liners, and other things - that really need to be swapped at the same time, then once you do get the whole M3 front end on your car you've got fender flares on the front and none on the quarters. That seems like a bunch of work gathering a thousand parts and making them work somewhere that they didn't come off of only to have a funny looking car at the end.

Also, what are you going to do about your front wheels? Without spacers or getting new ones with less offset they won't come close to filling your new wheel wells.
