Jeremy, If you want the IS look you'd be better off buying another E30...

I say just do the changes to this car, keep the kit.. maybe change up the colour and do some creative shaving if you want a more euro or sleeper look.

i say keep the kit and change the rims, shave the moldings & a new paint job.

*EDIT*

P.S. i love how your car looks. and bet it'll look better with those modifications

If I were to do it all over again I would be doing the sleeper look. Coilovers, nice set of 17's, and a turbo M3 engine.
