best body kits?

So, i just baught a 1988 325e today. It seems to run great and i am very happy with it(if you knew what i paid for it, youd be amazed).

SO right now im bored (and iv been looking at body kits)and i know i want to put some form of body kit on it, but im not sure which one to get. I really want to get a non fiberglass one if possible, i know fiberglass can crack fairly easily. So i guess my main question is are there any kits out there made of an abs type plastic or something? and if not, what kits do you all recomend?

the genesis kit would not be so bad if you smoothed out the Ferrari vents.

I dunno. I just love a 100% stock e30. I want to get mines looking like it just rolled off the production line.

You see tons of tricked out e30's, which are nice, but we don't see enough stock ones.
