E36 to E46 hood conversion

What sup peoples. Im new on this forum as you can see.
I drive an E36 and I wanted to put the E46 hood on it. I saw a pic and liked the way the e46 hood covers a little of the headlights (gives it more attitude). Just wondering if anybody knows what parts needed to make this conversion? and if I have to do any modification to the stock grill?

You probably need to activate your account. Check your e-mail and see if they sent you anything.

well im currently in the tail end of a total front end conversion, and the thing about the new 01 and up hood is that its a inch wider on each side so it wont match up with your stock fenders, thats why the guys in both of those pics dont actually have new e46 hoods, the black one is just stock hood and the white one is a stock hood with some fiberglass crap attached to it. The new hood is also about 3 - 5 inches short on length from your windsheild to the front of your car.. but if you really want this done on your car, go to ebay and buy new grills, then take ur car to a bodyshop and ask them to fiberglass your grill onto your hood and make it look like the e46, and if u want the aggressive look on your headlights just make custom eyelids.

Lets not encourage this sort of behavior...
