The rear and side skirts HAVE to be modified, which would be a lot easyer done on a fiberglass kit. The way the arche is on the 88+ makes it that there is a gap when you put it on a <87 car. I think some companies are selling the kits already reworked for the 84-87 cars so its bette the check arround before you buy one.

Try and get a real front if you can. It seems like the replica fronts fit absolutley awful. The rear wheel arches are different on the pre 88 e30s so if you get the original rear bumper it will stick out into the wheel well.
