Widebody(nothing tacky)

I'm looking for a widebody for a 335i, but not something gay and gross looking. Subtle and sleek. I'd like to be able to do this in combination with Mtech bumpers, or that style rear at least. Can you guys recommend anything? Thanks!

You would be better off going to a reputable body shop with experience in this kind of thing, and having once custom molded to the car. That way you get exactly what you want out of it.

Nobody makes a kit. It'd need to be done by a body shop. There's only 2 or 3 members that have had it done. In the end, your better off buying an M3 because you'll never come close to recouping the cost of the work when you go to sell your 'custom' car later.

if you're going to go through all the trouble of that, why not go wider? m3 can't really fit impressively wide tires back there

it's even more essential with the 335's because of all the extra torque

Thanks guys! For an e92 coupe, how much would that kind of work run me at a body shop and is it removable when I want to sell the car?

Oh and is anybody familar with the prior design m3 conversion? If I could get the fenders and flares from that, would they line up with aftermarket m3 bumpers?

Question, If you widen the outside, how do you widen the inside? Cut it out?

Ohh woops, I just noticed you already mentioned them lol.

You can always contact them via email and ask. They are really quick in responding to emails.

you can't just switch quarter panels that easy without re-weld'n.
it's not just a bolt on.
you need commitment.
once u turn it widebody oem m3 quarter panel, u better stay like that.


OP can do an OEM M3 E92 quarter panel or custom widebody at a bodyshop.

I have yet to see someone do an OEM M3 E92 rear quarter panel to
an E92. You can also do the front M3 fenders as well / that's little easier.
you'll need OEM M3 front bumper + I think oem M3 hood + the OEM m3 fenders. Wait i think EAS has an E92 that did it.


--edit
okay link
it was Brandon's E92
back in 08!
front fenders = OEM M3

I'm currently working on a M3 conversion, I have no past experience with body work and it worked out just great. Now I'm just waiting for the car to get painted.
