Quarters is a little harder, but there's no actual cutting, etc. In a way, still a bolt on. If these parts could be made reasonably cheaply(for what you're getting) I think there would be a customer base. Plus, lower development costs as parts are based on slightly modified OEM parts.
true, it's more satisfying to have whole panel exchange(s). I haven't seen too much panel removals on the forum, but i'm sure it must be possible with a little effort and without tearing apart the entire car

Im talking fully new panels, fenders, bumpers, skirts - the whole thing.

about as wide as the M3, +1-2"

Vote up, or if you have suggestions/requests let me know.

Just gauging interest for the moment.
I know tons of people who would love a widebody kit for e90/92's
just please dont make them look like the other widebody kits..like a huge wheel flare....(like GT car status)
just a wider body panel with a mild/agressive flare to it(you should always have 2 versions)
would be perfect.
something that could be molded/riveted on depending on the look one would want..

Not sure why there are no options for
something like this!!!
you could do +25/30 mm for mild wide body fans..and a 60mm flare for agressive widebody fans..or even larger for extreme fans.


not like this!!this is the only widebody style I see for BMW's and I have no idea why... it's like: either your all stock or your a full on GTC race car driver....kinda small minded if you ask me.

The front looks pretty good, the whole fender looks to be flared out, the rear is weird though, like someone just slapped on a cheap flare and molded it.

If the entire fender was flared out(more muscular look from the top to bottom) It would look amazing.

I dont mean to offend, by saying it looks cheap..but it does when comparing to other car's widebody's..
thinking of different auto brands, if someone did that let's say, to a jdm car which are known for having multiple widebody options, it would be laughed at.
I have a lot of experience with various chassis widebody's from aftermarket to custom. and I just dont see why the options are so limited... I mean I do, it's because most bmw owners would have a heart attack to even think of cutting their stock metal or riveting or molding a full on wider fender over their stock. also stepping away from the old school (GT car look as the only possible widebody mod) for bmw's scares most owners.


For example, how hard would it be to get a fiberglass or sheet metal mold of the m3 rear quarter fenders, and make carbon fiber/sheet metal/fiberglass copies and sell it as a widebody option for regular 3 series?
not very hard, cost could be below $2000 for a pair.
and when molded on, one would not even know it was aftermarket.
and for the m3's a general more flared out rear fender for maximum agressiveness would be awesome.

for guys who track their cars having a cheap fiber glass option would be awesome in case of needing repairs... and for the hardparkers they could go for carbon fiber or sheetmetal and look great.

I do, the fitment between the front bumper and the fenders is absolutely atrocious. Those uneven gaps would drive me nuts if that was my car.

I now know why they cheaped out on the rear quarters... because it's a 4 door, and they didnt wanna deal with extra parts/body work for widening the door panels..and the front fender is still that old school gt car flare.......

the WTCC kit makes the front bumper look like it came from a nascar e90. LOL. lame. it looks good on the real WTCC race car because it has crazy stickers, wheels, tires, aero and it's on a track, so u notice the lame bumper design less.

and i totally agree with the comment about the rear flare problem. cost/profitability on having a flare integrate with the rear e90 door is definitely a factor... which is why it looks awkward without it.

E30 M3 fender design > any other 3-series body kits

Little bit overkill for me. I'd like to see something simple, about as wide as the M3.
