biggest differnce aside from obvious interior diff. is width. 2 doors are wider so that mean hood and trunk are diff. Corners front and rear lights are diff. Fenders may be different but I doubt that...nose panels and headlights are the same config.

the biggest things you can salvage from a 2 door for a 4 door E36 is probably interior/ exterior trim, headlights, dash parts and trims, door speakers, and engine parts and components

Bumpers are cool...they'll swap okay...
if they didn't we'll all hear half the E36 drivers complaining about their M3 mods....cause that is the first thing they ALL do...get 2 door M3 bumpers for their 4 door 325 sedans.....

[snapback]305211[/snapback]
get the M3 bumper...i was joking.

but measure first to be sure and remember they are different variations of M3 bumpers that look good with certain color cars and combine with certain collectives of external cosmetic mods (eg. wings, grills, spoilers, rim style, rim size)

so consider this as well....look at your car as ask yourself what will go best with it.
