E30's come from the factory with black chip coat rockers, color matched
rockers look like ass trust me, now color coded side skirts is a different
story. My e30 looks like it sits quite high? I need to drive up on planks of wood just to get a floor jack under it, any lower the oil pan would be kissing the ground.

your car is low dont get me wrong, but i was referring to your sig pic, the black rockers blend in with the shadow, it makes the side of the car look like its ridin' high.

No need to apologize, I can see what you're talking about, the sides are high as compared to the low iS lip, side skirts will definitely reduce this but they will never line up unless I run huge Rieger ones which I think are pretty ugly.
I'll eventually get iS side skirts, the car needs other things first to make it go faster.

Did you tint the headlights yourself? What exactly is tinted? The glass or the reflectors?

Lamin-x special edition film over the lenses temporarily until the real smoked hellas get here.

So close to mine yet so different.... Man, your car looks cooler and cooler every time you post it...

That Euro-look tire stretching thing is growing on me... BTW those blacked out headlights are pretty sweet... how much and where to get this lamin-x stuff you speak of?

Thanks, I love the euro look on an e30 when done right, the smoked lamin-x
cost about $40 which includes the four headlights and two fogs, btw this is a temporary thing until I get my real hella smoked lights, it does decrease light output but I don't drive this car at night.
