    I have bought myself a E46 318ci and am looking into what thing's will fit off the E46 M3. I have already found out that to fit the M3 front bumper is going to make me change the wings and bonnet. So that will more than likely be getting done

    Am thinking toward's the rear end of the car now. Will the M3 rear bumper be a direct fit onto the rear end of my E46 318ci ? and Also will the M3 backbox be a direct fit to my E46 318ci too ?

    I have just bought some M3 wheel's for it, they should be here tomorrow or tuesday.

    Any help on this would be fantastic!

    Looking forward to be hearing from you lot

    Thank's
    Mark

    I'm not 100% sure but don't the m3 arches flare out to fit a rear m3 bumper?

    Are the wheels you bought off an M3? If so they won't fit as different offset.

    The whole front end of the M3 is 3 inch's longer so you have to go for the whole complete front end of a M3 for it to fit on a standard E46.

    So am just going for the facelift version now as its going to cost FAR to much money

    So looks like the end of that :( but just hope the Facelift version will look just as well when it is finished.

    Does anyone know if the M3 exhaust backbox will fit direct onto the normal E46 318ci?

    M4RKY N dont give up just yet!!!! cos a 2002 M3 is actually only 2cm longer 4 cm wider and 4cm lower than a 2002 318 the extra length is made up by the bumpers and the extra width is the rear arches but all body panels are interchangable
    It's a ragtop thing, you wouldn't understand
