Yes it will. I saw a 2005 545i that fooled the crap out of me at Bimmerfest last
year. As you approached it from the back it looked like a 2008 550i with the M
sport pack even with the style 172 rims and was debadged. It's only when you saw
the door handles inside and window switches was when you realized it was a pre-LCI.
He told me afterwards too, and he even got the LCI lights front and rear. It was nice.

So, basically exterior wise you can easily make a pre-LCI look like an LCI.

That's not a popular upgrade, but it's possible. Different fog lights, lower
grill inserts, side reflectors. The back bumper is the same. side skirts are
the same. Usually people just upgrade to the M body kit and call it good.
To go with the regular body kit of the LCI E60 is fine with no modifications
needed, but there are trim pieces involved.
Check out these pages and see the differences including the M-body kit.
