Has anybody retrofitted an (OEM) M3 front bumper on a non-///M E46 coupe? I
know of a couple of sedan retrofits, but haven't heard of it being done on a
coupe. My searches on this forum have turned up nothing, surprisingly. Do
the same issues apply? Or is it more straight forward? I'm pretty sure it's
not "plug and play", but it seems like it would be easier to fit on a coupe
than a sedan. I know E46Boy has an ///M front, but I believe it's a replica
...

:dunno:

I think it requires the M3 fenders, or failing that, lots of modification to the actual M3 bumper to make it line up with the stock coupe fenders.

Yeah, I like the Rieger front, but not quite as well as the OEM front (more
rounded). Some have complained about fitment issues, but overall it looks
like a good product. The main problem, as PortlandDinan3 pointed out during
his sedan retrofit, is that it won't accept nifty upgrades like the ACS CF
addon. Of course, I'd need to win the lottery to afford that, but it's nice
to have the option. Though for the right price, my mind could be changed.
I'll PM you :)
