The chrome is a year vintage/period thing. Still think it looks (and probably performs) better than any body kits. Just my random thoughts.

You know what, I really don't mind the look of what you got. But nah, I'll keep what I have. Are you saying that the later model e30's are sort of a body kit - reference to fog lights on the "revised" air dam and color-coordinated plastic bumper? I'm no purist by any means, but I think what I'm saying is that early e30s with the period-correct chrome look fantastic - Then again I am new to BMWs, this is my first.

the front plastics can be swapped to an 87 and lower car, but the rear requires extensive modifications. But it has been done.

88 is a direct swap.
