Hard to come by...especially OEM. If you do come across one, you'll pay good coin for it...GL though

Out of curiousity what would an OEM (new) m tech II body kit go for price wise?

No -really - any solid prices?

I was quoted $1200 unpainted, no mounting hardware for the rear bumper/apron from the dealer. That's just the rear.

The dealer might not be the place to start looking when on a budget.

They also quote $5 each for light bulbs that go behind the instruments! I ended up finding them for $1.09 at Parts Source......

What car do you have, Alex Dye? If it is an 87e, an Mtech II won't fit without modification anyway. Look for euro bumpers instead maybe?

yeah a 87 325e, well that sucks lol

Yeah, the front is not too bad (cut some tow hooks, get the late model valance IIRC) but the rear requires a lot more work.

Seriously, euro bumpers are the way to go, plus lowered suspension and wheels and you're set.

and how much roughly do they cost? also easy to find? any sites to order them off? thanks

Fairly rare in North America, but sometimes available. Common in EU. Might be easiest to buy from ebay.de and ship here.

There are no cheap options for the early style e30, so be prepared to invest some significant time and effort in it.

EDIT: Perhaps a bumper tuck is more along the lines of what you wanna do. Google it. :)

I think I know the answer, but has anyone actually seen one of these Mtech II style kits from raceonusa.com actually fitted to an E30? Does it fit/look like shit?

I'm sure they fit as good as any non-oem kit. In fact, it doesn't really matter, and here's why.

A body part either fits, or it doesn't and requires modification to fit. This WILL require modification and prep / paint, so how much modification only becomes a matter of labor cost. Say .5 to 4 hours to fit a front panel, from best to worst quality. In the grand scheme of things, that's a small percentage of the total cost likely.

Hope that came out clear.

I know someone who has a full m tech 4 dr kit on a parts car.....I will give him a call for a price, will have to be painted though

What exactly is required to fit the M tech 2 kit to an early 86 e30 (2door)? Replacing the valence with an 88+ and altering the wheel arch for the fenders? Rear mods? Any info/links/pics much appreciated.

I could get you guys a Mtech full body kit, but it would be in Dureflex material. Which is fiberglass with a mix of plastic to make it flex better and fit better.

Check it out at here: http://www.extremedimensions.com/11388.html

As for the price on the full 8-piece kit I probably could get close to $899.00 USD Shipped to ON. I'd have to double check but we can go from there and see.

Hey Steve,

Just out of curiosity - could you get that kit for convertibles as well?

I might consider going that route if/when I repaint my vert.

Cheers,

Hello Paul,

Well from what I'm seeing on ED, that the kit should fit ALL versions of the E30. Coupe, Sedan and Verts.

any opinions on this Duraflex Mtech II kit? i am interested in getting it. anyone try out this kit? if so whats the fitament and durability like?

everlast
07-06-2009, 02:03 PM
I have not seen anyone on any board with one yet, but I imagine it would be like every other kit on the market. Expect some fitment issues (as you should) and be prepared to spend either a lot of time or some $ at a body shop getting it lined up, prepped and painted.

But that's all "supposing" since I've never seen one.

Its just a Mtech kit, I'm not too sure if its Mtech II but you can see here:
http://www.extremedimensions.com/11388.html

Basically, its a little bit easier to work with. Because of its new duraflex material. AND the costs is A LOT cheaper for sure than $2000.00.

That is an Mtech II replica kit.

The cost of the kit is great, but then it needs to be fitted and painted. That will definitely take you over $2K.
