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

are those flares part of the "gordons kit" ????

I think they may be, but I have yet to see a decent pic of that kit so it's hard to say.

what flares are those ???

I have no clue, I'd take a guess that it's all custom done. Start out with a set of iX flares and make a mold off those, than just keep building it up. It's really hard to say...

the new wheels i want are 10" wide

2 words, BUMP STOPS!!!. Man your gonna have to have some super stiff bump stops to pull that off. I'd also think your gonna have to s t r e t c h some rubber on those things to get it to fit underthere. Go make a post on e30.de as those crazy germans are always doing stuff like this. They may have some advice...

My suggestion is to first buy the wheels put them on your car and then take your car to the bodyshop to have the fender flares overlap the wheels.
Just like "Behmer" almost successfully did on dtmpower.net.

I don't really think it would look good on an e30.

again just my 2 cents.

Jeremy I don't know, I see so many euro e30's with w i d e rims and it makes me think it's really possiable. Your just gonna have to have the prefect offset/tire combo. I mean look at this touring, those have got to be at least 9" wide...
