It's called "tuck" I think it would look better with the rear half an inch higher, but I doubt Jordan cares about what we think.

jordan man why did you get rid of your vis carbon fiber hood?.....i thought that looked really good on your car and it stood out nicely. Besides that it's still looking really hot.

hungaryboy I hope your question towards jordan's car was not what i think it was. How can you say it looks like primer? look at the pic carefully. It's porbably the camera giving it a primer effect or maybe your screen is making it have that effect. To me it looks like jordan's regular e30 just with no carbon fiber hood anymore.

Now,these look like healthy e30's.!
Everybody has different likes and dislikes about what they like in cars. e30's in this case. The cars that hungaryboy posted all look absolutely horrible in my opinion, but that's just my opinion, Jordan's car looks fabulous, and exactly what an e30 should look like, clean and unmolested for the most part....Again MY opinion!

There is absolutely no point in putting down someones car that they obviously put a lot of work into, and that is theirs. Different people modify their own car to THEIR liking!

Take my car for example, mostly stock, nothing special, lots of Km's, attracts no attention, and bottlecap wheels!! Omg aren't they hideous you say! But it's mine and that's why I like it, you certainly don't have to.

We are all on here to help each other and offer differences of opinions, that's what makes this board so interesting. Heck, all message boards for that matter.

Can't we all just get along!

OK I am done, I feel better now

I got rid of the VIS hood for several reasons. It fit poorly, and it was as such unpaintable. I never wanted to run an exposed weave hood in the first place but was forced to due to the fit. Its now on a metallic black M3 and looks sick there.

Much happier with my OEM hood fitment and color.

Sold a long time ago. Had to sell it local because no one was willing to pay the shipping costs. I kinda lost money on it but its ok.

Basicly selling it paid for the paint on my new hood.
