Mein Auto: '02 330i
'02 330ci bumper vs. '05 330ci's

Good Morning Fellow BMWenthusiasts,

I really like the front bumper of the 2002 330ci.
If I were to purchase the 2005 330ci, would I
be able to change out its bumper w/ that
from an '02 model?

Thank you.

J

I think so.

While I see nothing in the parts catalog that answers this question directly, the same M aero II front bumper (part number 51 11 7 893 057) will fit both 2001 and 2004 cars, which implies that the earlier bumper will fit a later car (and vice versa.)
