Mass Confusion. Bumper help!

So I was on Craigslist and saw a 2011 LCI M-Sport bumper for a 335i. Its going for cheap so it peaked my interest. And I was wondering if it would fit my 07 335i. I was reading a few posts about this and got mixed answers. Some people say its a direct fit. Some say they are different part numbers, so they probably won't fit. (Which yeah it's a different part number the bumper is LCI), another one read, that only the e90 LCI won't fit non-LCI. So I'm really confused here... Any help would be appreciated.

It will not match the hood on your car anyway, I'm not sure about it being a direct fit or not.

I'm not 1000% sure but aren't the shapes of the headlights different on the LCI, making the bumper shape different?

When I said, that someone mentioned the e90 LCI was different, that person specified it was due to a change to light shape. But he said specifically e90, he didn't mention e92 at all.

Light shape on e92s does look different pre and post LCI. Look at the bottom of the lights.

Funny thing is I think the e90 housings are interchangeable.

I converted my pre-lci E90 front to LCI Msport front. It's possible...

But for E92, the headlights are different. The hood and fenders line up.

I didn't have to change lights. I have an E90. All I did was trim the top of my kindey grills off.

For E92, pre-lci to LCI requires the headlight swap as well.

Hmm.. That would put this above the price of a new bumper and paint so not even getting a deal. Thanks for the info.
