wide body kit?
 
has anyone out there done just the rear fenders wide and left the rest alone? and would it look good on a vert modle?

fcsteve 12-11-2012 08:19 PM

that would look completely stupid on any model.

why would you even think about doing that ?

e30pilot92 12-11-2012 08:22 PM

just idea, would the whole kit look good on a vert?

fcsteve 12-11-2012 08:31 PM

no, if you want a performance/track car .. buy a coupe or an m3.

Yeah I mean my dad brought up the idea of wide drag tires and I thought it might look pretty sweet

it was a bad idea.

decently wide rear wheels can fit under the car without real modification, but if you are driving around with a stock m20 it will still be completely useless.

Yeah I'm trying to get that m20 out of there or turbo it but I need to do some more research on price to performance ratio

a modded m52 or s52 would be cheaper and yield reasonable hp, but still nothing to warrant drag tires in the rear.

e30pilot92 12-12-2012 09:16 AM

Ok s52 swap price? If its not too much to ask

research it. it all depends on your area and how much you can find the motor for. whatever price you find the motor for, add about $1000 for the rest of the parts to complete the swap.

Feel free to weld in your own fender flairs but I wouldn't go crazy with a wide body kit. I know someone selling a widebody Green/Zinno 318is/M52 Turbo race car shell if your interested Pm me. Its in the MD area if you wanted to make a road trip.
