    i think i like it alot, just not the sideskirts. or wing.
    that's a factory M3 wing.. note the c-pillar conversion.

    actually, i think it looks worse with the c-pillar conversion, just like the wide body looks bad without it. the bumpers by themselves, however, look great.

      the bumper looks good, but the wheels/fender-gap and huge wing ruin it.. so imagine it without those things :)
      I think the profile shot helps a lot. Look at how far the bumper seems to extend out from the front fender, even though it has been molded to fit the car.

        yeah.. one reason I was thinking of that on my car was because the ix sides would fill that out a bit so it wouldn't stick out. and I do think it would look a lot better if those wheels/tires weren't so rediculous.

          this car is featured in this Months Bimmer. Its actually a chick's daily driver, her husband restored a very nice m powered 3.0csl in the same issue. The car is pretty nice, has over 350 thousand miles on it BUT it still has an m10. Check it out though, he did a very good job on the bumpers, talks about how he worked them because his car didnt have the flared fenders. Just thought it was interesting

            The silver M10 just needs an EVO III lip to complete the front end.

                  They are actually really common. Here is a picture of a more extreme C-pillar conversion.



                  Unfortunately C-pillar conversions don't last very long. Eventually they turn into B-flies which to the uneducated seem like completely different conversions. But in reality we wouldn't have B-flies without the lowly C-pillar conversion. Here is an example of a post C-pillar converted to B-fly:

                  The automotive world is such an exciting and mysterious place.
