    I'm pretty sure a coupe/cabrio bonnet (which all E46 M3's were) will NOT fit a saloon - different shape.

    I think I'm right in saying there is a design difference between the M3 and standard models to prevent a straight forward swap... I think BMW are sick of seeing M3 replicas also

    Like everyone says, an M3 bonnet will not fit a saloon because it is wider.
