Can you install this on you own?

You can install body kits alone? is this true? i though you had to take the kit to a body shop to do it. I though theyd have to compund and use their sander n everything to but body kits on or are they all just bolt on and glue?

Most kits are bolt ons.
So if you know how to use a screw driver you can install it.
But you gotta paint it.

Widebody kits would require a good body shop

o thats good news,

so what about this guys car? i think its the best e30 ive ever seen i love this car do you think his kit was a bolt on?

LOL that is Randy's car. In my humble opinion it's the best E30 I have EVER seen. I am not sure (someone correct me on this) but that body kit was put on very professionally. He did everything right on that piece of art! Anyone know for sure??

real468 11-06-2003 07:44 PM

yea id love to know. I have a couple vids of it running too it looks like alot of fun. And when you say very professionally wahts the difference? what do they do differently? does it make more sense to bring it in to a shop?

real468 11-06-2003 07:48 PM

only thing i dont like is the racing seats cus im more of a luxury guy but what a sexy car damn,*mw*

i think randys rieger kit had to be a little customized to fit ( bracketing, alignment etc )

real468 11-07-2003 06:59 PM

thats nice but still how could people not notice this car? unless they chopped it up. sucks either way but id take a gt2 anyday

Jon@Bimmersport 11-07-2003 07:12 PM

ya randys kit wasnt easy to put on from what i hear, but reiger makes a kit for the E30 then E30 M3...E30 M3 one sticks out a bit more...for a widebody, but luckily his was the right one...everything for body work was done at unique auto collision in mississauga. i'd post some vids i got of his car but got no where to put it...

A million trillion bajillion dollars for a widebody kit.
and about $2000 for a normal kit + an ok (not great) paintjob
