Make sure you get self tapping screws, normal screw don't tend to last as long.

Normal eyebrows arent too bad, but I don't like them. The badboy eyebrow makes me wanna puke. However its no worse then the other bodyparts on that white car IMO.

You just don't like the idea of a bodykit? Or just that one in particular? BTW, which one do you have on your car, looks great, when is the poor baby going to see some paint?

I just fail to find anything appealing on Fil's eta. Its just as unattractive as it gets IMO.

I dont have a bodykit on my car, the whole car will be repainted in a month or so.

Fair enough, its your opinion, I myself like it, aggressive, yet clean. Your car will look sweet once shes all done.. why is it that you only have the lower portion of your car prepped?

Because I had to make and fabricate everything... My car started out as a 87 325iS with the giant ugly aluminum bumpers. The front valance and plastic bumper were directly retrofitted. The from lip is a Rieger Infinity lip spoiler. The splitter on the lip is custom fabricated. The sideskirts are off a 97 328iS. They were cut down, trimmed, and reshaped to fit. The all the mounting brackets and end trim was fabricated for them. The rear bumper was also converted to plastic.. properly. Then most recently I took a 95 e36 M3 rear bumper and cut it in half horizontally, then that into many parts. I reshaped and bonded it to the bottom of the plastic bumper. I cut out the diffuser openings as well. Now I have a e36 M3 rear apron without the lousy fit of the AV3 kit. I'm working on completing the finish work on it right now.

Also to be more specific, the AV3 kit actually isn't a M3 rear bumper, its a normal non-m rear bumper with the diffuser grafted in. if you dont know the difference dont worry about it, but the e36 guys should.

I had the entire car shell repainted over a year ago, but all the unpainted parts were not put on until more recently.

Awsome, sounds like you really know what the hell your doing, and more props for doin it yourself. Get 'er painted man! Can't wait to see what she looks like completed. For now I'm quite happy how the stock Z looks like, so I think I'm just going to leaver her alone for now... only mods I'm thinkin will be under the hood.
