Euro bumper conversion?

I'm looking at an 88 535i, but am turned off by the hideous US bumpers. Is there a way to modify them or do you need euro parts to do the swap?

US Bumpers

If you add the iS front air dam they don't look bad.
Still have the protruding bumper, but not as noticeable as without.
