Jeremy, If you want the IS look you'd be better off buying another E30...

I say just do the changes to this car, keep the kit.. maybe change up the colour and do some creative shaving if you want a more euro or sleeper look.

i have a tiny bit of oxidation happening by the sunroof panel.....and to buy a quart of my paint and spend all the time to match it right and blend it to the rest of the car, i mine aswell re-paint the whole car...plus, i hate the color now.


thanks miguel *th-up*

i say keep the kit and change the rims, shave the moldings & a new paint job.

*EDIT*

P.S. i love *love* *love* how your car looks. and bet it'll look better with those modifications

euro style just wont make sense for my car....16x9's with stretched rubber arent really the best rims for cornering

If I were to do it all over again I would be doing the sleeper look. Coilovers, nice set of 17's, and a turbo M3 engine.

Ya, jer, come over to the PERFORMANCE side man, i mean i know you have power under that hood, but your car is so show (not that theres anything wrong with that). I say go for the IS look, make it ncie and CLEAN, but like miguel said, it wouldn't be worth it, so just keep your car, take away the splitters, and most importantly, the spoiler (sorry man, just not my taste, hehehe) ad give it a nice simple paint job, like CARBON BLACK, ESTORIL BLUE, PHEONIX YELLOW, IMOLA RED, THAT GUN METAL on the new M3's, a newer factory color would look HOT on your car!

jeremy
04-10-2004, 01:21 AM
haha...if i sell it, you'll be at the top of the list....

for a color, i am pretty sure i will go qith steel grey metallic

Lennon

Excellent choice! Thats what I almost did the E30 in, but cheaped out and just redid it in black, cause if I'm gonna do a colour change, I want EVERYTHING changed, and I'm just too broke to afford someone to do it properly like that, so just exterior paint for me. Can't wait to see it done, whichever way you go man, its gonna look great.

go sleeper style; paint the car black, get black rims, black out the window trim, tint the taillights and get a flat black iS lip :)

But why change it? it looks nice as it is...

if you find 15s all the time, if they're cheap then get em, and buy new shells for the wheels to make them the size you want, 15in and 16in BBS rs have the same size center peice, its the shell thats different...could buy new shells for those replicas and make them 16X9 as well ;)

qimis
04-15-2004, 06:52 PM
^^^ *th-up* that's the cheapest way you can go to build up your BBS RS ! as long as the bolt pattern and offset are perfect, then you're set !
