I have an '86 325 2dr with the ugly silver bumpers, is it possible to buy the colored plastic bumpers from an '89-91 325 and install them on my car without any (or much) modifications?

<I have the same car, 86 325ES with the same ugly bumpers. I replaced the stock bumper shock absorbers with ones I made with 1&1/2" to 2" less length. It moved the bumper in so that just an inch or so shows past the plastic skirts. Then to help the look I color matched to the body and spoilers the rubber on the front of the bumpers and the plastic skirts. It looks great and the brushed aluminum on the bumpers complments the crome around the windows.
