What happens when you take an E30 and add a little E46 and E60?

So much body work, so little sense

This little Frankenstein of a BMW started off as a normal 4-door BMW E30 3-Series Sedan. Apparently the owner has decided to keep up with the times, somehow he managed to show-horn something that looks like a Z3 mixed with an E46 front end onto the front of the car. He also decided to bring the car a class above, so an E60 lookalike rear is slapped on. What do you think?

I think it's a clean presentation (save the visor graphics). However it suffers from a common fault of many custom cars; lots of time and craftsmanship but no core design at work. This happens most audaciously in the model car world.

Kinda like the shaved door handles... They provide a little distraction.
