What mods could I transfer from E92 335xi to F30 335i?

Hey Guys,
I tried searching, but if someone has already posted something on transferrable mods just send me the link.

Anyways, my car hits the end of it's warranty within a year, and I'm considering trading up to an F30 due to the possibility that I may be able to take some mods with me. I have an E92 335xi (w/N54), and would be looking at an F30 335i RWD. I'm wondering which mods are even possible to transfer to the F30, and which ones may be possible but probably aren't worth the cost of transferring. Here's the ones I have that are worth looking into:

Dinan:
Stage 3 software (I imagine I'd have to re-purchase this)
Exhaust
Intercooler
Intake
Oil cooler

Other:
KW v3 Suspension (can't imagine this transferring going AWD -> RWD)
Wheels - 19x8.5 ET30, 19x9.5 ET35

Thanks.

Different engine and 2 door vs 4 door, plus larger car, maybe only the rims will work out

Safest bet. Your Dinan won't transfer as I believe it's VIN based. Most of the other mods would work theoretically, but the big issue is mounting points. Kind of like motorcycle exhausts.... Companies reuse the same can with different mounting kits and mid-pipes to match things up to the application. I doubt anything except your wheels/tires will bolt up to the new car.

Even the wheel bolts wont fit, as they have changed from M12 to M14

Thanks for the responses. I guess I'll wait until the F30 ships here to make my decision, but I'll probably end up having to choose between parting out my car and trading it in, or trying to find a private party buyer that wants it with all the Dinan stuff.
