Certainly not too much rake. The E36 body just has naturally lower rear fenders.


I'm digging the new wheels Frank!

Frank's car doesn't have much rake, look at the top of the wheels. That's how you define rake, the rear wheels have to be further away from the top of the fender.


E36s do not have lower rear fenders, they simply have a bodyline that goes upwards, giving that illusion.

Good evening fellas! I'm a friend of Matt's (FenderBender). I don't spend too much time on forums these days, but i love photography and finally had the opportunity to take some pics of my car this weekend. If you have questions, Matt could probably answer them for you quicker than i will see and respond to them.

Enjoy the pics.

























Here is an interior shot that i am sure you guys will appreciate. Double DIN units area a real PITA on these cars......

AC Schnitzer lip spoiler. They are very hard to find these days. I stumbled upon my with dumb luck. I'm not a huge fan of spoilers on our cars, but i liked the subtle difference of this particular lip spoiler.

I need to take some interior shots someday as well, but here is one of the double DIN nav unit that i installed. A real PITA, but a nice touch to the car.

Thanks! BTW, my cars two previous owners were from Buffalo, New York. There is a chance you may have seen it before. It used to have a Reiger front splitter, no fogs or a spoiler. The first owner in Buffalo was a guy with the username xWALKERx on Bimmerforums.

Greetings from Hong Kong!!!
I'm new to the forum, and trying to get an E66 because of my dad (he's getting old). But I would like to show some of my E36 pics before I sell it!!
Everything is illegal in Hong Kong, just by changing the rims can get you a huge ticket. I've been lucky so far...






Died on me for once....
