    hey everyone,

    i have a bmw e46 saloon and im looking to do it up and i have been looking at doing an m3 style front with a m sport rear bumper, however after doing a little bit of research into m3s and the arches are wider, i was just woundering if anyone has any knowledge of a company that can supply a kit or who can do the work, and if anyone has any knowledge of the cost of doing this?

    thanks

    I think you can buy the arches directly from bmw dealers. Don't know the price but they'd have a premium on them purely because they're for the M3. Any good bodyshop should be able to weld them in and body fill them to smooth em in.

    Front end is alot of money too plus your paint costs etc.

    I'm going to be doing a project like this in the future hopefully on a silver or grey 325 e46 vert

    Might have a little bother though cause AFAIK they never made an E46 M3 saloon,so they would need to be custom arches
