Anything can be done with enough money. Should be plenty painful -- lots of costum bodywork, i.e., welding, drilling, and cutting.

why do it? so expensive. buy a rieger front bumper. they have one that looks like an e46 M3 , and its not bad looking.. the alternative will and is expensive to do. the hood your probably still gonna have to get custom done, but at least youll be able to pocket a bit of money for another mod.

WHat do you mean by front end? I understand you are referring to everything from the fenders, to the hood, nose panel, and bumper. Am I correct? I, personnaly, think it would be tacky. It would be your car, so all that matters is that you like it.
