Most bmw's in that era are like that, the rear fender is actually lightly square. Mine is like that too. I guess its just BMW styling, I like it.


Jenn, Somehow when I look at your car, I think that Flares would look much better. Like Jon said, your gonna need some new wheels or spacers.

I am probably repainting this winter, and my body shop will do a widebody or fenderflare for practically nothing, so I figured why not......
I was thinking more of the fenderflare my self... The widebody kinda scares me.....I would be afraid to drive it everyday...

I'd do Flares... Widebody's are cool, but Flares give it a nice clean look.

I say get either the Esquiss or Schnitzer widebody kit. That would look nice, btw, what color are you painting your car?

That's true ... kinda like this one too. I think it's by Esquisse Rafale or something of that nature.

I agree. It's very costly. Plus, you gotta factor in, would you be driving it everyday? If so then I would just get the flares. If you have a car on the side then I say go with the widebody.

Reasoning: It's nice to drive such a hot car (widebody) but since it looks so nice, I personally would feel bad for driving it everyday. I would consider it a Show Car or Weekend Fun Car. To drive it everyday and having the chances set a lot higher of something going wrong would just freak me out.
