2009 stock bumper or 2011 IS bumper...

Has anyone here had success in putting a 2011/12 IS bumper on a 2009 335 coupe?

I got in a fender bender and my 2009 front bumper has to be replaced. I'm thinking of making some kind of change and was wondering if anyone here knew if this would be a good update to the car.

I want something that's factory because of the quality/price of the product. I realize the body shop will have to do some bracket adjustments to make it work.

But does anyone have any success or horror stories from doing something like this?

Check e90post.com to be sure (this is an M3 forum), but it should be a straight swap.
