    My brother is looking at an E36 Compact available exclusively to him, but has just asked me if I can find out if any of the m3 bumpers fit the compact.

    Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Would a genuine saloon/coupe/cab m3 bumper fit a compact?
    Would it have to be an aftermarket m3 bumper designed to fit a compact?

    He's a genuine-only freak when it comes to his bimmer.

    Infact, I'll post up pics of his previous cars when I'm back home!

    Excellent,

    Which one? Coupe, Saloon, or Cab? Or is it all interchangeable?

    I'm totally clueless when it comes to interchangeable bumpers... Just glad there was an m3 saloon.

    All E36 front bumpers are interchangeable...

    Compact has its own rear bumper which wont fit any other E36...
