Jeremy, few days ago I went to my bodyshop and spotted a nice e30 with wide body, full rollcage and a m3 engine. and with the big 2 hood scoop in the hood and roof. the engine was from e36 m3 from the look of it. so I do not think it was e30 m3. but with the wide body car looked very nice even though it was not finished at the time(people were working on the car. sanding.)
When I visit there again , i ll make sure to take a picture.

Custom is probably your only choice. And the M3 box flairs won't work because the only thing that the E30 non-M3 shares with the E30 M3 is the hood and sunroof panel.

You can put m3 flares on a regular e30. Of course it will have to be custom. The front fenders actualy bolt up, its the quarter panels that would take all the work to put on, and look right. I've seen a couple of them it never looks right though without the raised truck lid. if you want bigger flares to put just wider tires on im sure you know BMP sells them

bmp's are kinda ugly and use external rivets for fastening which leaves an ugly finnish (like they dont belong)....i suppose i could get a set and mold them in

You can get the E30 wide body for as low as $500 but it will take a lot of work to put it on! And even then you end up with an M3 wannabe...everyone will just make fun of it, stating with Rob...
I might do it on a 4 door car, which will be different since there was no E30 M3 4 door ever made...

Hi Jeremy,

Keep the car the way it is. Just change the wheels if you want.

Just my 2 cents.
