Updated E30?????

was looking up some stuff online and found an E30 with E46 front and rear end. I have mixed feelings on the car, honestly it confuses the hell outa me. I do appreciate its origionality and the many hours of work someone did to do this. I found it looking up E46's because we need a four door eventually and are sell ing the Tahoe.

I think it looks discordant and bizarre, completely missing the point of the car. There is a vast gulf between the hard-edged, somewhat Giugiaro-influenced uprightness of the E30 and the modern curves of the E46. It's like a home addition designed by a bad contractor, not an architect or experienced tradesman.

I think the rear end is from a 5-series, not an e46
But that doesn't help it though

My thought - FAIL

Holy sh!t that looks like ass. Completely out of proportion. The E46 curves look great then are lost when you look at the side of the car.

The rear looks like a Subaru Baja...

They sell that shit at Home depo. I think it's like 1.99 per foot.
It's in the Rice section, right by Lumber.

No mixed feelings here! Its just hidious!!! That money would have been well spent at a clean E30 restoration, or nice E46...but not a mix of both!
