Can you install this on you own?

You can install body kits alone? is this true? i though you had to take the kit to a body shop to do it. I though theyd have to compund and use their sander n everything to but body kits on or are they all just bolt on and glue?

Most kits are bolt ons.
So if you know how to use a screw driver you can install it.
But you gotta paint it.

Widebody kits would require a good body shop

LOL that is Randy's car. In my humble opinion it's the best E30 I have EVER seen. I am not sure (someone correct me on this) but that body kit was put on very professionally. He did everything right on that piece of art! Anyone know for sure??

ya randys kit wasnt easy to put on from what i hear, but reiger makes a kit for the E30 then E30 M3...E30 M3 one sticks out a bit more...for a widebody, but luckily his was the right one...everything for body work was done at unique auto collision in mississauga. i'd post some vids i got of his car but got no where to put it...

A million trillion bajillion dollars for a widebody kit.
and about $2000 for a normal kit + an ok (not great) paintjob
