Sorry..but imho that is pretty expensive for rolling fenders...all four corners? I have rolled fenders myself on several cars..and for friends for free. Is there some special tricks on the E90/E92? I just use a baseball bat...and a hydraulic jack...normally try to do it when it is warm outside.

let the weather warm up...and I am game..cause I will need to do my own. I did the fronts on several of Audis...97 A4, 00 S4, 01 S4 Avant, and then two or three A4/S4s of friends... Let me be the guinea pig on my car when it arrives..then I will see how hard it is. I got taught by a body shop guy I know in Redwood City...

Screw the baseball bat. I'll lend you my sledgehammer and you can be the first to have a widebody.

hehehe the baseball bat method! actually works pretty well but a bit scary. i used this method on my e34. one suggestion is to use a heat gun to heat up the paint to prevent it from cracking when doing the rolling.

have fun at your fender rolling party!

the one posted on e46f is a bit dangerous.

this is a better one for reference: http://e46m3performance.com/installs...roll/index.htm

again, heat up your paint with a heat gun or blow dryer before doing the rolling.

disclaimer: i'm not the author of the write up in the provided link. i'm not responsible for anybody trying this method and messing up their body work, paint, or anything else on the car. that said, i'd probably let a pro/shop do the fender rolling on my e90 since it's still so new and less worries of messing up.

Sledgehammer is exactly what I used to roll my rear fender on my '98 Eclipse.....

when I jumped from 205/45/17 to 225/45/17........

It worked great! Just gotta be patient............
