Can E90 rear bumper be shoehorned onto E92?

Title says it all. The rear bumper of the E90 looks much better than the E92 IMO. The rear of my E92 seems busy and unfinished.

Considering I have spoken with 3 other E92 M3 owners that agreed with me I am surprised at the responses. Evidently this must be a tri-state area desire. I suppose you like your giant exposed muffler can.

I hardly see the comparison between asking about a fiberglass piece of trim and a retractable convertible roof. It's not like I asked if I can swap my 6mt for a DCT....

It just looks like they forgot to cut out the dimples and put the honeycomb in them. That is the main difference between the e90 and e92. That and the muffler is hidden better.

The E90 rear bumper is one of the main reasons I find the E90 M3 uglier. The E92 M3's rear bumper is so much more aggressive and unique looking.
