your headlight is missing...
the lip doesn't look bad, just looks like you'll knock it off it a month.

thats horrible. you're car is definitely not low. If your car was low that lip would be scraping the ground 24/7. also wtf is up with your mono wiper? **** looks retarded. take the ///M badge off as well.

rellaxxxxx.... damn... i don't think every damn e30 should look the same... hence why i like it, something different... As of right now it scrapes with out the lip due to my shocks are f'd up... and for the M-badge being there.. its the German flag not the M colors. if you dont have anything nice today keep that mouth shut. You don't see me baggin about your hood and the various colors on your car do you?

r3v will agree with just the mt2 being there and monster trucking. you posted on a public forum dont expect EVERYONE to be like "OH YO DUDE MAN BRO YOUR CAR IS SO SICK" no. doesnt matter if its not the M colors, it's still and M badge. no, not every e30 should be the same, but that is just stupid. which is my opinion yes. should leave the mt2 alone.

its not different, its been done. its the german colors on an M badge, you could color it purple and it will still be an M badge. i make fun of his colored car daily.

i sell real mono wipers not just standard wipers placed in an ungodly fashion. PM me if you'd like a real one.

I don't understand what "fake low" is....can someone help me?

I like the car but I think it would look better if you painted the bottlecaps back to silver and did away with the mono wiper, also request a pic of the side!

fake low would be when you have a bunch of lips making your car look like its 2 inches off the ground .. while the rest of the car is still 10 inches off the ground. just because the front lips go to the ground doesnt mean the car isnt a monster truck

where did you see him post that? i cant find it. but if he did happen to say it you can talk all the sh!t you want on my car. my car is stock height with a fiberglass mt2 kit. does it have a M badge? no. does it have an IS lip to make it look low? no. does mine have a sh!tty ratty retarded looking mono wiper? no, it has a legit one. does it have a stupid "giant" intake with a grill where the high beam is supposed to be thinking it will add 20+ whp? no. i also happen to have EURO SMILEYS and EURO GRILLS. despite the fact of having a multi colored car and tedious sh!t, i would have to say my car pwns yours.

did you actually turn the wiper on and when it got to that "perfect" position you turned the ignition off? if what I said is true... hilarious.

no intake needs a light removed .. even people with 5 and 6 inch turbo intakes dont remove the headlight.

there is no flow to his arguments. its just random anger and aggression from nowhere . he cant do it like i can
