I respect the effort made to try something different but why clash new body styles on an older bmw?... The only way your going to pull that off is to somehow make it like that picture posted earlier

Thanks, we are very happy with the results..pics don`t really do it justice

Only the front clip was painted, the rest is original. It was done at Sherway Collision, the owner is a friend and client of mine.

Working on a front lip, wanted to make it a sep piece so it is easy to repair.

That nose looks so thin on the e36, need some kind of big flat diffuser to drop it to the lower body line, and i'd black out the grills!

Agree with the drop, but i think he should keep the grille so that it corresponds with the grills on the fender

I will be keeping the chrome, the goal was to create a look that to a non BMW enthusiast would appear OEM. The lip-splitters will be coming soon, nothing too crazy though.

the area where the grill sits seems a little awkward, out of place. But the rest of the kit looks awesome! Excellent work you did there.

Now time to slam!!
