    As in the title really! I have a 1990 530i, and have been looking at a new bonnet and grill.

    I've found a couple but most are from facelift cars - will they fit? If thet will then what other parts would i need - are the headlights different?

    Cheers!

    Fom what I recall from my old E34, the later V8 engined cars had the wider kidney grills, and the bonnet cut out for the grill was wider too, So, you would need to change the center kidney grill, the headlight surrounds going either side of the kidney grill, the headlights are the same, you also need to change the metal panel under the grill, between the bottom of the grill and the top of the front bumper cos that will have the wider cut out in the middle too. Oh, and the bonnet too!!
