Putting this bodykit on a e30 I think I could sell it (for more and many of them) then the new Dodge Dart

As soon as Pink Floyd rolled... that's probably the point where you bolted to kijiji... because that's when I did.

I Google'd it an found this thread on MyE28.com http://www.mye28.com/viewtopic.php?p=527540

It looks like the guy who built the car sold it to Hugo and now wants to buy it back!

I'm curious about the colour???

2nd page some guy mentioned Mango Green, a factory colour for the old VWs.
It definitely looks good on that car.

yaknow what, with all you guys bashing his design, I haven't seen anyone of you come up with something remotely decent to prove it being bad otherwise. I gotta say that for creativity, and originality that is pretty good. Sure it has similarities to others. EVERY car manufacturer RIPS other manufacturers off. plain and simple you can see the similarities of all the designs out there. no eureka moments there. However, regardless of what others say you have my thumbs up on this. and I would go as far to get one myself. Just to PISS ALL YOU dudes off..

I have a little automotive design experience. Id give it a go.

There are aspects of the car that i do like. And what this designer did was keep the main shell and redesign around it... Thats why the roofline and window trim looks odd.

I believe with further tweaking of his design it will work.

The white with stripes concept looks really good... Goes to show how a change of colour makes a difference too

I like the idea of building a "modern day E30" from scratch, it's the idea of taking a 30 year old car and gluing a bunch of stuff over top of it to make it look new that I don't like. If you stare at the top view for long enough you'll see that in reality this would be hard to pull off and make it look good (all the gaps around the window line are shit). And unless you start with a pretty pristine example as a base (sacrilege!) you are basically building a car that's going to rot from the inside out because those panels are just going to trap dirt and moisture.

really now? is that why we have problems with e30's rotting in behind the fender heels? behind the wiper cowl, inner upper front fender area and oh wait the one behind the gas flap and fuel return res.

This is a design; it can always be refined; those areas should be addressed. but I guess they were thinking the same thing when the built the e30 too huh?

There are plenty of body kits out there that try to make an E30 look more "modern" and none of them really work. Is there really a need for another one?

For example...







Granted this one goes much farther and changes the front and rear lights and basically everything but the roof, but it's not any more successful (in my opinion) of making an E30 look modern. It's just a more complicated and detailed failure.

lets see how many after thoughts we can list for the e30...hmmm.. diving board bumpers... ummm...the 3rd brake light for the cabrio...the cup holder armrest. I don't think these look all that great considering the engineering that goes into bmw. A desperate measure to get the cars to pass DOT for the NA market. my opinion. poorly thought out for design. Clearly they wanted to save money..
