Noob Member Looking For Aftermarket Exterior Parts

Later on tonight I will be picking up a 1995 BMW 525i sedan and was trying to find anybody selling fiberglass hood, trunk, and doors. I want to shave off like 1,000 pounds. I was thinking of getting lightweight wheels but the bolt pattern on these E34 is 5x120 and it isn't the 5x114.3. Long ago I remembered my friend stole wheels from a guy back in the late 90s and he redrill them to fit onto his car. I was wondering if I can do that but when I ask around shops they say it'll off balance the wheels and tell me that do I want to risk that for looks. So please people enlighten me.

guess if u can find something like this, it will be only diy stuff. there's a trick with ur stock hood - to cut it and put some insert there like this https://www.carid.com/duraflex/spyde...leid=630915364
but as for me it's not worth it
and bout making new PCD's - it's pretty it's pretty expansive too, u need to find someone with cnc machine, cuz u cannot just make a holes with ur drill
