lol..thought so. I got it from a guy in California, I think he also has an ebay store, I'll look in my records for the name of it. Before you get too jealous though, it is fiberglass, the price was just too good. I've been damn happy with it though..nothing but compliments

PS: what do you think of the backwards side skirts...I was trying to be different but still can't decide if I should turn them round.

I think that I haven't seen many skirts like that...and that is a good thing. Nice car!

=/<88 bumpers are big and ugly. Euro bumpers of the same years are sexy. Post 88 bumpers like that 3 wheelin E30 you saw(BahnBaum), are cool but difficult to fit their ends to earlier years. Which leads us to the MTech kit like the one posted in your DIY thread. It is the most difficult to find aside from the early specialty kits by Breyton, Racing Dynamics, Ac Schnitzer, and Alpina .

The E46 M3 lookalike is widely available and cheap.

All too true they were way too big and bulky. I'm a definate fan of the Mtech kit, but I decided to get the e46 kit because I saw a friend with an mtech in fiberglass that was very poorly made....Word to the wise(from my friend) If a seller won't supply close up photos DO NOT BUY! And yes the e46 m3 kits are easy to get. Dorkerbiter... just search ebay for E30 body kit and you will find one.

Okay...will do. Do the body kits fit OVER the stock bumpers? Or do they mount on their own?

You remove to old bumpers completely for the body kit, but there are add-ons you can put on the bottom of the existing one. I meant to say before too that on e-bay search for "Reiger E46 M3 look" and you should find it.

I absolutely hate the e46 look. It doesn't fit the e30's appearance at all and everytime I see an e30 with it here, I just shake my head and feel sorry for them. The mtec, on the other hand, is a work of art.

I do like the M-Tech better...BUT, everybody and their momma has them. There are like 5 teenagers running around here with the M-Tech front bumpers. Granted...they have the car lowered to the stops, and the kit is still primered(rice)...I just want something different. See my point? I used my bumper as scaffolding yesterday...isn't that pathetic?

I was talking to the other guy, didn't you see the "eh"! you must have posted right before me, and I agree with you 100%... everyone around me has an mtech or something that looks very similar imo.

I figured that...(the "eh" gave it away). lol...I just don't want the diving board on the front of my ride anymore. I mean...I loved my 88 "is". But I couldnt keep the front lip on and I ran it over like 20 times...finally it broke. So...I still think your ride is sweet.

I hear you. My lip broke off in the fall after I went over an un-painted speed bump. Completely cracked it and it's irreparable. So now I can either shell out some cash to the dealer to get a replacement and then have to get it painted, OR I can get a whole bodykit and then get it all painted.

I think I need a new valence. It's cracked on the drivers side and rusting around the crack.
