If he was to get teh m3 sides he would have to mold them due to the wheel flares. Alot of work. The front is a good i dea though

Lower it. I say 1.4in in the front and 1 in the rear gives it that sportier low profile type look, which the e30s should have had from the plant.

A little costly but aquire some rear seats with headrests, really adds a more modern and balanced look to the e30.

I can't remember nor tell if you have all disc brakes, if not that would be a great thing to do for complementing those rims. Rims and drums don't mix, IMHO.

Other than the above your car looks great, especially with the spoiler and DTM...

I think the car looks great, it just needs to be lowered. I think you should focus on that, and when it's as low as you want it (dont leave the shop unless it is!! trust me!), I already know you'll love it to death. It really doesn't need anything else that I can see, she's a beaut!

You can do the following:

- lower it
- shadow line it
- Buy an Mtech kit or Rieger kit
- shave your doorhandels (like my car)

Looks nice. A shadowline, a tint and an 'is lip would make it look even better for not a lot of cash.

How about get some nice 16x9 rims, Upgrade the brakes, shave the door molding, badges and handles, french the licence plate and colour match the bumper trim.
