Hey guys, just bought my first e30, it's an 87 325i. I'm trying to look for some solutions for the diving boards. I'm looking for the eurospec bumpers or plastic with rear valance as well. I'm hoping to find some euro ones so i don't have to do as much fab work on the rear end.

Find Euro bumpz. I swapped to plastics and it was a very big job to get looking good.

Yeah i would really like those, cause it looks like a lot of work to get the plastics in nice, its just that euros are so hard to come by and when they do they aren't cheap. Ultimately i would rather them, but i was thinking of tucking them in the meantime. Do you know if the rear valance can be easily installed on the 87?

you'll spend a bit more for euro's but, the key is finding them rust free...thats the hard part.

IIRC you can still buy the raw, unpainted/unchromed euro bumpers brand new. Paint body colour for a nice sleek look, NickP did this on his Mtech1 and it looks great.

I'd try maranello parts (forum sponsor), blunttech.com (r3vlimited sponsor) or patrick at bmaparts.
