You cannot use F32 fenders. You will need to cut and weld the tip of the F32 fenders to your F30 fenders to make the headlights fit.

I finished my F37 project, i used standart bumper, instead of M sport. I wanted to integrate the LCI luxury line trim, coz it will look very close to the 4er concept car presented in the end 2013. Soon will post picture. Just for the records, i cutted the fenders ( several times ) the result is satisfying. I found that a pair of F32 fenders will make the life easier, if you chose to do that. Also Headlights are direct bolt on, nothing was needed. I read the article before installing and i was scared with this "signal cable" add. But fortunately on my car runned as a direct bolt on. Probably the guy had a car without xenon, or at leas without dynamic AHL headlights.

Next will add eybach pro kit, i want to move it lower without sacrifice the ride quality at all. And need new emblem LCI bumper trims, and detailing The Car is 328i Xdrive with Wagner cooler, and GFB DV+. Otherwise its an a luxury trim car. I want to keep it elegant, eventually will add ECU remap, not a piggiback.

To be honest those cars are so slow and anemic compared to 30 diesels but its a nice car at all good feel and ride, nice interior etc.

You just cut your original F30 fenders?
How did you make the inner lip with the bumper brackets?

I Draw the line where it has to be cutted, than cut it perpendicular on small pieces, to that line, than bend them and weld, after that epoxy prime and silicone, i did a new holder for the bumer, because they're different after i did the bend i mark the holes from the bumer and drill it.
To be honest when i worked on it i didnt expect to get such a perfect result as i get, it was a surprise for me. But on a later stage i'm planing to make the original fender as you suggest. After that i want to make a copy from a fiber glass or abs plastic so to produce more of those fenders I'm plan to make a wagon like that too. Car looks so much better now

Hey.

Did you need to change any of the plastic behind the bumper? I'm thinking about the plastic frame around the radiator etc.

Yes all are different, easy to replace when you change the bumper and they're not very expensive. Also the front wheel arch covers, you can use F30s but F32 are slightly different.
The bumper support top and lower are the same

If you, or someone else want to do the conversion, please contact me. It's not that hard really but there is a very very tricky part in the fenders, i don't want more guys to do my mistakes and did it 3 times. Also the guy who originally make the post did the same mistake as me I later found a great solution to the issue. Also it can be done without any welding, BMW provide a great super glue for metal work, and its alot more preferable, durable and easy to work than the welding ! !

Mountings are the same, F32 has a supoort that is part of the headlights * they are more thin overall.

beside all chassis mountings are the same.

Fenders do not match. You can use OE F80 m3 fenders
