never really thought about it to be honest. i would suggest checking with either pelican parts, or real oem. bav auto may even have specs listed. just enter the vin and see what the breakdown is for years compatable (usually there will be notes stating coupe only, sedan only, or coupe and convertible only, and such).

when in doubt, verify the part numbers. or call a junkyard and ask what the hollander guide lists. that's the industry standard guide, and it's very good.

To my knowledge they arent directly swappable. Do able with some work but im not sure what would need to be involved. im about 80% sure they are differently shapped though. I tried to use junker parts to repair my front bumper and they dont fit even though it was the same year/era.

I checked realoem for the coupe and sedan 325i vs 325is built in 94 and the front bumper part numbers are the same. I believe that the parts should be directly swappable.

perhaps its different for an M3 like i have but i know for a fact that the sedan parts i bought didnt fit on my bumper. they were simply items. The only item that fit was the license plate trim. everything else is sitting in my shed.

sedan and coupe bumpers are different, it looks like you have a two door, so why are you even asking this question?

i was just curious cause maybe it might fit...i just need a different front end for my car cause i got into a wreck and picking up an M3 sedan would be perfect cause i found one with a totaled rear, but the front is perfect and i wanted to know if i could just swap the whole front end in with the m3 motor as well...

oh yea...the m3 is a 97
