waterfall hood looks silly with stock e36 headlights.
I wouldn't really call that a CSL trunklid... it's more like an e46 m3 lip moulded to the trunk. I give it a 5/10. It's meh... but something I probably would've tried with my e46 trunk spoiler lip if I thought of it when my car was in the shop.
don't like how the trunk was modified to slip over the tail lights and round the corners of them either.

what kind of mirrors are those?
the whole car doesn't do much for me.

looks like ACS mirrors

maybe that it doesnt match the trunk at all. it sticks out too much and doesnt flow correctly with the body lines. for something like that to work you'd have to mold the two rear fenders to extend out as well then i think it would look better, but as pictured :moon:

it's the suck.....go 3 piece acs spoiler or one of those ///m lip spoilers

On the e46 the CSL trunk actually flows into the lines on the fenders, on the e36 you get that dip there on top of the quarter panel....I don't like it (on the e36)

not feeling it Miguel...

I would rather get the 3 piece ACS trunk lip and mold that on as AcS ones flow perfectly with rear top end of the quarter panels.

I like it, looks good, similar to the ACS 3 piece, but not as obvious!

i think that whole car is a disaster. took a nice looking car(stock e36) and made it look like a convertable sunfire.

10-16-2005, 01:27 PM
why do ppl try to change from e36 to e46..
itss soo grosss *thmbsdwn*

i tried photoshoping it on max car, wasnt sure on the photoshop though.
but im definitly not liking the real thing.

btw, ACS 3pcs spoiler is nothing like CSL trunk, ACS is still flat, while CSL trunk is curved

the csl rear does look look pretty nice if you ask me.

10-16-2005, 10:09 PM
thats looks hideous ...

yea the rear looks out of place. when you look at the taillights there is a black moulding around the light itself, and its sort of cut off around the trunk...doesn't match anything. but I do like the hood, although it does look weird with E36 headlights, it would look much better with an e46 headlight/cornerlight conversion!
