Im a manager at a body shop in BC Canada, and I've got a customer with a 98 M3 with a totaled front bumper. He's interested in putting on a new M3 style front bumper or aftermarket style one.

Is the new M3 front bumper adaptable to this M3 body style??

Who is making aftermarket front bumpers / body kits for these vehicles?

Customer is also interested in a set of clear corner lenses...where do i go?

thanks

bavauto has clear corners, and the only not-cheaply-made or cheaply-priced e46 m3 looking front spoiler for an e36 I have seen is made by a company called Rieger. I think Hamaan may make them as well. But they are all expensive. You can always find a way to fit an actual e46 m3 bumper, but that will require more work. It may also not be as fitted or streamlined as one designed for an e36 specifically.

Think about this however: putting a streamlined and rounded e46 style bumper on a rather square, yet agressively styled e36 body will look awkward, but thats in my opinion.
