Reiger makes a 4 door widebody kit.

That E36 on Cardomain is what made me buy a BMW... and since I got my car I've been modelling it after his... (with some personal twists along the way.) I was at his page the other day and noticed he updated with some widebody progress pics... had me curious on how much it would cost, and what my options are. I doubt I could afford it... but ya never know...

That's why I posted this thread. *th-up*

modified Rieger fender flares.

Apparently Rieger widebody is very difficult to install and you need some serious cutting and modifying to make it look even.

4dr widebody?:confused:
I'm pretty sure Zeemax makes a widebody kit for the E36 sedan.

IMO I think Widebody looks better on coupes

I dunno, i agree with 1BADBMR, widebody sedans look like KAK, the only reason i'd buy a 2dr is to slap a nice FAT ass on it!
Otherwise, sedans look better stock for stock, but body mods, coupes for sure!

I still think wide-bodies are best suited for 2drs.

That blk reiger is badass !!!*th-up* ...the silver one, I only like the rear bumper.

I agree, that black widebody looks ALRIGHT, but still looks improper!
IMO, 2dr's widebody, 4dr.s unless done PROPERLY.......NO!

No, it is. He did a lot of cutting of his original fender, and shoving those flares into it. then using bondo, etc.

It's just the car that you posted has the flares that you "slap on" practically, cause you can see that they stick out, but it's still a lot of work even to install those properly.

I think Rieger widebody looks the best on a sedan, but i don't think it's worth the money...

I think that 4 door E36 widebody looks better then the coupe...IMO. And if i could pick one it would be that Rieger, it looks amazing*mw* *love* *mw* I hope to design a widebody kit someday, but something that fits right on the car with no mods or bond whatsoever....

Do you guys think those Rieger widebody fenders would look good with an M3 front / rear / skirts? ... just because the $$$ to swap all those parts out would be quite a bit...

Even Matt (first link posted by ///MsAniTy) changed his front/rear though.. :/

I prefer 2dr wide body kits, but the 4dr looks nice as well, but i def would get the reiger wide body, best looking*mw*

the black reiger owns, and that silver zeemax doesnt look like a widebody..with diff side skirts and diff rear spoiler it'd look nice IMO...

2 doors are better for widebody IMO

The kit looks alright but I hate the circled spots.

If they fixed those problems on the kit and dumped it on the right set 19z, I think it would look pretty good!

I think the problem with the silver widebody is that it's too "square". Look at the fenders, they nearly 90 degree out of the car... whereas the black rieger one is smoothed out.. it looks more natural. I think this red one in progress will be smoothed out before it's painted... looks like he got replacement fenders...

aright heres the deal...you can do this 3 ways...

ghetto style: BONDO

euro style: tossing on fender flares and getting a wide body kit.

durable style also costly but AWESOME EFFECT: pull out the fenders.it looks really good i've seen it on a bunch of A4's*th-up*

Jon@Bimmersport
01-29-2004, 04:38 AM
mr seville's "euro style" is the one i'd choose..pulled fenders looks gay IMO...Jon sibal and Castro OWN all the widebody cars with theirs

here's Ryan Castro's third version of his car..

Jon@Bimmersport

Jon Sibal with his turbo 325is equiss/custom widebody

sadda.. the first one is flares obviously, since they had to cut the fenders... what about the others though?
