    Too late brother, just found a facelift front end for cheap, so on my way to pick it up from warrington! Just on the look out for facelift headlight's now

    where would be the best place to get them?

    try ebay man

    this is a 318 that i looked at while looking for mine it was a lovely car but i just thought you dont change rear quarters just to make it look like a rep and wondered if it had had one up the a** or even a ringer so i passed on it, did look the kippers t*ts tho dispite the lack of M3 bonnet

    ^^ So do the whole rear quarters need to be cut out and replaced? or can they be flared? Cos the M3 looks like it has massive hips

    a decent metal man could just cut out the arches and mig the M3`s on but that would mean plenty of filling and blocking..... changing the whole rear quater would be less ag but just as bigger job, i honestly dont think the stock arches would flare that much it would still need new steel to do the job

    if they are gen BM 19`s the backs wont but the fronts will, i have 4 fronts on mine because of this!!! and even the fronts are just over 9" wide so its still tight under there , repo wheels aint staggered from all accounts so they might fit (but dont quote me on that)

    M3DREAMER - Car looks really well mate, i have just bought that bumper for the front of mine so cant wait to get it all on and sorted out. My wheels should be here tomorrow or wednesday so as soon as its all together and on the road ill get some photo's up on here! Have you done anything else to your BMW? What is the rear end like? Am debating a different exhaust system for mine but i dont know which style now, with the OE plan of M3 going out the window

    What lights will i need to go on my facelift front end now then? And should i go normal headlights? or Angel eye's?

    Huuummmm

    not much really! apart from the wheels i`ve only change the rear lights to led`s the 3rd brake light to the led one and fitted led bulbs in the depos....just asthetics really, i would like an M3 exhaust but that would mean changing the bumper t look right so not sure about that yet, it handled quite well before for a car of its size so i didnt really notice any difference with the bigger wheels but i did have 18" 8.5J on it originally,but all i want to do at the moment is drop the front a bit as it sits a bit high
