e30 body question - experts

i got a 1990 so its the later body style.. so far i got the front to look pretty nice (stock bumper and lip + an is lip, looks nice and clean, fits together) .. my question is for the back side, i hate how it sits so high and angles towards the car at the bottom.. looks ugly imo

since for now i cant afford a kit, i was wondering if any addons existed.. kinda like a lip addon for the front bumper... something for the rear that can attach to the stock bumper.. to lengthen it out and at an angle away from the car and either just drop over (or cover around) the muffler tips

anyone know if i can find something like this anywhere? or someone who could custom make it for me... prolly lookin to spend around the 150$ range for this i would guess

something like this rough pic:

hmm.. that wont work because then the sides wont be covered it will only cover the back... but maybe a front iS lip. just turned backwards... but i dunno if that will fit on

and Fil..for 250 i might as well have bought a whole bumper off you during your boxing week sale... but just for the sake of it can you lemme know where i can get it from? just so i can see what it looks like

thx guys

It's angled for a reason.. You won't be able to use underground parking or maybe even your driveway if you don't have that angle.. The M-tech kit only comes do an extra 3/4's to an inch and hides almost everything... So I wouldn't go more then that.
