Doubt he'll get 6800.


I'd say no for the seats. online they go for 250. unless they are a legit brand I would want to know it's new.

Found an incredible deal on 6 Beyern Type 5 silver 18s, four fronts (8.5) and two rears (9.5), now I can't get the seller to reply. They're probably sold already.......

I know I really want them. Time to save some moniez

I'm not sure for brackets for them though. I was thinking about making brackets at school and then using a set of sliders to weld on them. I don't think the universal ones will work because our seat posts are offset to the seat. Like the ones closest to the door aren't under the seat, but offset to the side quite a bit, like 2-3in.

Hmm, that's what I was always wondering, I'll probably have to make some when I get seats too, but I'll try out the brackets that come with them.

Kit looks good.

hopefully not a fibreglass one - if its been sitting a while then it can flex out of shape.

Fingers x'ed its ABS

yaa it looks a little too good to be true....doesn't say whether its sedan or coupe either. if it were sedan would i be able to mount the bumpers and just not the skirts? or just none of it.

The bumpers/skirts are the same for both sedan and coupe.

anybody wanna buy a vert from "DJ SEX"???
This guy's been posting the same car in multiple CL areas all over New England for the last few weeks, with different discriptions, different prices and different wheels. Sometimes it has the 20's as pictured, and sometimes it has 15's on it. Sometimes the 20's are included and sometimes not. Sometimes it's a 318 and others it's a 325. There's even one ad where he claims that it "has a new timing belt."

Oh, and the video he links to is priceless, especially the part where "DJ Sex" demonstrates the moving-message LED display on the license plate frame. Other highlights include the door-sized hundred-dollar-bill decal with his picture on it, the bling that's dripping off of everything, and the faux carbon fiber trunk lid wallpaper. Definitely a must-see!!

I don't know where this guy bought his ///M body kit from, but the claim that it originally cost $1k is a crock, and makes me suspicious. You can get a full ///M body kit from DDM for nowhere near $1k.

Yeah, I'm not saying that $200 is a bad deal for a full kit (provided it isn't fiberglass). I'm just saying the seller appears to be A) lying, or B) stupid.

front bumper: $99
side skirts: $100
rear bumper w/diffuser: $245

Shipping is what adds up...$130 for the rear bumper, I forget what the exact breakdown on the skirts and front bumper were, but it was about $650 total when I bought them a year ago. BTW, they got here in 10 days. Not bad for buying during the Christmas rush.

I always thought that the saloon skirts were longer.

Usually coupe skirts are listed as coupe/convertable skirts...

Just a thought

Actually yeah, you're right
The bumpers are the same, the wheelbase is just a bit different on the coupe than the sedan.

Just went and picked up the clear side markers from this guy. $20 and they are brand new.

Sorry Franklyn, the corners are for coupes not sedans.

I heard something about the fitment of them.

One fits in the other kind but not the other way around.

I came up with an idea on how im going to mount my wing

DDM skirts I know for a fact fit saloons. I'm pretty sure the wheel base is exactly the same. The only difference is that sedans have smaller doors and a little bit less leg room from what I've noticed between both of my cars.
