    This is what the valance on that red car is. If you don't want fog lights. They sell covers for the holes.

      Thanks. What does it come off? What's the lip on the bottom?

      Sorry, really dumb questions I'm sure.

        It's off of any 83-85 euro car. And it uses the lip with the brake duct holes in it. The lip is on any 85 and back e30.

          That pic is old, I had the US diving board valence at that point. Currently have the one JasonC posted.

            Thanks for the info guys, I now know the names/parts to add to my wish list. Hopefully I can get 'em sometime.

            Is the rear valance just off of any 83-85 euro car too? I dun't even know if that's a valance, whatever it is.

              That's how your rear looks when you take off the DB bumper. No modification needed.

                    I understand that it just swaps in and out. Do I need just the shocks and the actual bumper part...and the valence/middle piece?

                    Thanks.

                      What are you asking more specifically? Maybe it's jsut me, but I'm confused by your question.

                        The diving board part. Would just that need to be swapped off?

                          Has anyone seen tucked bumpers with a mtech rear apron on an 87 or older? Or can that not be done? It might look weird anyways...

                            Early / external US fogs do not fit euro valences, but, m3 and MT1 fogs will fit.

                            For sake of clarity I'll reffer to cars based on tailight size as is less confusing.

                            There's company that manufactures their own (fiberglass?) version of mt2 rear aprons/bumpers, they are made to fit small tailight vehicles.

                            I never seen anyone butcher an oem mt2 so it will fit small tailight sedans, coupes., it would be extremly difficult to do it correctly as the apron actually wraps around the rear bumper (acting as a skin).

                                Just wanted to drop in a smear my dick on everyone..
                                Theres been 2 complete nice early euro e30's in the pull a parts around here in the past year or so.
                                Thanks!
                                :)

                                ps - My euro bumpers are brand new. Took the original BMW of Italy packaging off of them. So basically you can still buy them brand new for a little bit cheaper than what people want for an entire kit used.
