**********s Mtech Body

Hey guys, just curious of the fitment of an Mtech style body from **********s. I've ordered things from them before and they're legit but I'm worried about the fitment. A lot of people say "you get what you pay for" and at first I was going to go with OEM no doubt but I'm on a tight budget and ~$1400 from Tischer BMW for OEM is extremely pricey. And on the other hand a lot of people who've bought the replicas say the fitment is fine. What do you guys think? Should I pull the trigger and buy the body from **********s now because of the deals..or get KW Coilovers at the end of December? Note I have a 30% for the coilovers that I can use anytime. Also the body would be sitting in my garage for a while til I can get them painted.

EDIT:

Think I'm going with the M3 rep, looks more aggressive.

EDITx2

Getting the m3 front and mtech rear next black friday, going to keep saving for the coilovers for now. would be a hard site to see the bumpers sitting in the garage for half a year waiting to be painted.

Why not check out LTMW? They are usually cheaper and will definitely treat you right.

I always think coilovers are a great first mod even before rims.... nothing worse than a modded car at stock height imo. Currently I have KW V1's and love them. I installed them first then 19" LM reps then Mtech rear. Now I'm waiting to switch-out the front bumper.

LTMW will do a great job but if your on a "tight" budget that might not be the route I'd suggest.

I'd get the coilovers and save up and go to LTMW when your ready to spend $1000 and do it right. ... good luck either way! Its really a win/win
