Difference between E90 M3 and E92 M3: Front Grills

Hi folks,

Does anyone know if there is a difference between the front grills on the sedan vs.the coupe? I would like to purchase a set of carbon fiber grills (this particular design/weave is not available for the E90 M3) from an E92 M3 owner, for my E90 M3. Am I going to run into any fitment issues? I notice that some of the vendors seem to discriminate between the two, but I can't find any conclusive evidence. Help would be appreciated with this,

Cheers

I believe the entire front ends are the same, but I wouldn't bet a purchase on it. Can't you contact the vendor?

correct.
But even on the side, the inserts (lighting, emblem and those chrome piece) are exactly the same just housings (E90 has black mesh back) are different.

You're right. Thanks. I spoke to a vendor and they are indeed the same. It looks like only the side gills and the hood itself differ. Just wanted to make sure.
