jeremy all those kits can be fitted on an 84 ? would you need to do some modifications to them to fit ?

dont forget the mtechII. It will require some retrofitting if your car is older then 89

I like Reiger. I am quite happy with the quality and look over some fiberglass kits-they tend to crack easily. Reiger is not fiberglass.
Thanks
p.s It all comes down to personal preference.
p.s.s Just like most all guys like girls compared to E46lover who like????

Onece again, just because its a Rieger does NOT mean its not fiberglass, and it does not mean its bad quality! The GTS and Genesis kits are all very high qualits fiberglass products and are original Rieger!

Lots of meat on fil's kits.It will hold up. Plus if it cracks it can be repaired. ABS kits are a bitch to get fixed. Big $$ too

I think all Rieger kits are fiberglass, except the Infinity I lip. I have the Infinity I lip, its flimsy ABS plastic, and I have broke it once. I fixed it myself with fiberglass.

Most of the kits posted so far will fit an 84, except for the M-tech II and the Rieger Infinity I. They are also almost all fiberglass and should be fitted by a professional since fiberglass kits have flaws 99% of the time.

I dont think anyone makes a direct fit mtechII for a pre 87. they can be made to fit. But again that is extra money .

if you install a fiberglass kit PROPERLY, you shouldn't have any problems....

abs plastic is alittle more ridgid, but it is also alot harder/expensive to fix...and the majority of the time, it is repaired using fiberglass...

fiberglass is easier to work with, more flexible and easy and cheap to fix....

jeremy
02-15-2004, 05:24 PM
keep in mind, i am talking about a well made fiberglass kit.....

yup....and i cant decide if i should flare the arches into the gts sides or go with the m3 sides:confused:

i'm leaning toward the gts w/arches

djcontra
02-15-2004, 10:28 PM
i'm not crazy about the m3 sideskirt look on the e30 for some reason.
What about seidl sideskirts? It looks like it has the lines to match the angles of the rieger lip up front, and the gts rear.
(not that great of a pic, but you can sorta see the side skirts)

^ that's actualy an awesome idea..... i totaly never really even noticed the seidl side skirts.....when you look at that pic, it's hard to notice anything except the rear skirt :)
