new idea e46 to e90

just because im the one that likes to mess with things just to try something different. does anyone know if the entire e90 front would fit on the e46 front? i would like to convert mine over to the new style.

Everything is possible with enough money and effort. I seriously doubt it would be a direct bolt-on -- I could bet my car on that. The E90 is wider, so you'll have that to deal with.

Personally, I like the look of the E46 much better and wouldn't ever think about doing what you have on your mind. But this is your car, your time, your money. Aesthetically, the front clip of the E90 will clash with the rest of the car's body. The flame curves of the front fenders would abruptly terminate when the panel meets the doors. Again -- just my opinion.

If you do go ahead with this, please post up pics and tell us how it goes. Also, be prepared to be criticized and to received discouraging replies. This is the internet, and that is how things go.

Personally, I think the result would cause a bit of regret.

Enjoy your E46, save your money, and buy the E90 when you can afford it. They're both wonderful cars, so you'll have no regrets doing it the right way. The mod you are suggesting would seriously depreciate the value of your car.

well the other reason why i was asking is because i did get in a minor accident where i need to replace the driver fender, maybe the head and the head light support. all of those parts cost just a little cheaper then 2 fenders and head lightset. then i found a bumper for cheap and the hood for decent price. i have about 1000 to work with
