Yeah its the late model front end.. you have the early model with the apron? I'm not really sure how one would go about doing the late model conversion, but you can get them from most 88+ e30s, and they will also have the plastic bumpers. The rear is def going to require more work to swap.. you'll have to cut out the rear apron, and fiberglass the new one onto yours to make work :/ that's what I understand from others unfortunately

Screw the rear then, I'll just do the front! lol

It's an 84.

You wouldn't happen to have a fuel pump I could buy would you?

Lol I'd leave the rear alone too haha although it does make a diff..

If you want to know what's exactly involved for the conversion, I'm sure r3vlimited has it all written out lol.. and no sorry, don't have much e30 parts laying around like I used to do with the e36 lol
