Mein Auto: x3, gti
can you put a 2007 bumper on 04 x3

okay so im starting to like how the newer x3's bumpers look
can i just buy a oem bumper and slap it on my 2004 x3?
ive seen the 2004 bmw x3 AC SCHNITZER kit but it costs way too much =/

if so, and if any of you have, can you link me to where i can buy them?
and share pics if you guys have done it

A few on here have contemplated it, but I don't think have actually done it.

Won't be as easy as slapping it on - the details might take a bit of time and need a few workarounds.

The trouble with that kind of mod is that when you go to sell the car it looks like it was wrecked and repaired with the wrong parts.

If done properly it shouldn't look like it was wrecked, you can also go back to the original bumper later. Other thing to consider would be a 2006 bumper max. 2007 on the grille and other pieces on the front are different. Also the fog lights are different so you need adding those to the price since I'm pretty sure they don't come with the new bumper. The main body of the X3 is the same 2004-2010, so I don't think it would be too hard.
