    Hello guys, i was looking around on the interwebs and saw this http://img130.imageshack.us/img130/3751/compfl.jpg
    I think there is nothing wrong with a compact front. But this looks f**king good. I wasn't planning on doing such things to my bimmer at first. But i can't keep my eyes of it... I now have decided i will attempt to do it if its doable. But i just can't find out if the front end of a coupe and a compact match, and what kind of issues i have to overcome. Can someone help ?
    I know it's better just to buy a coupe. But i love the way the thing looks .a complete coupe is to large in my eyes ( its definitely looking good, but i dont want it :p )

    in the thread they aren't all that sure. i guess our berliner friends kept the chassis thesame on all e46's to press down the productioncosts, but i want to be sure before i buy half a coupe :P so if someone can give me heads up if he knows more. would be lovely

    hope it's all bolt on and 'fertig' , but with my luck i'll have to buy 2 complete coupe's and 3 compact's , weld all of them together. and crash into a tree to get the wanted effect :P .
