    So this is list of mods that I have done on my E30. Pretty standard 2.7i build. Eventually I'm going 2.8/2.9, up compression, and ITB's.
    (I also have a maf conversion by SSSquid tuning as well)

      Found some pictures from back in 2017 when I was doing the head swap and subframe reinforcement.
      The subframe ended up being warped and I had undo everything. I just order some weld in plates and reinforced my old one instead.
      The head luckily went on without a hitch.

        This must be a blast to drive! Any plans for wheels/tires?

          Man I love driving it. I'm leaning toward Apex ARC-8 wheels.

            Awhile back I had the unfortunate pleasure of being rear-ended. It was horrible more of a bump. But it did crack my rear bumper. Which sucked because it was in good condition. It just need to be painted. Either way I replaced it with a unit from CATuned. It's not OE but it fits pretty good and it did break the bank.

                I ordered a set of wheels from Fitment Industries back on March 1st. I thought it would take a lot longer for them to come in. But they have shipped already and they look like they will be here on Friday 11th. After they come in and I install them I will post pictures.
                The wheels I ended up getting are a set of ESM 002's 16x8 20et. I was going to buy a set of Apex ARC-8's. But to be honest I didn't want to run 17's. Plus I'm eventually going to run a set of Works or have my bottle caps re-barreled.......or both. These ESM's look good and have a classic look without being uber expensive. Plus my tire choice just got way bigger by going to these versus the 14" bottle caps.

                  Bumper looks good. Any other work needed to fit it?

                  On their website, it looked like these bumpers were a single piece bumper/trim, but yours looks like the trim is separate like OE?
                  Also I guess I should ask if it comes with the trim

                    So the trim on the sides is attached (as one piece) and the center just slides in with 2 tabs on either side. I will say the center will sag with the heat of the sun so I use magnets to hold it (quick release). The bumper has the brackets for the side built into it. I reused the inner support beam. CATuned supplies screws to mount them together.
                    I can take pictures of what mean later.

                        To be honest I like the way this trim and bumper fasten better. I can remove outer bumper shell and leave the support bumper bolted on if I need to remove it. Again this is not a OE piece. It's a lot cheaper option. Plus it's not as brittle as the OE piece was. So if you're looking for an all original piece to complete a show car this isn't it. But if you drive and enjoy your car and want it to still look good on a budget this works fine.

                          Thank you for the pics and info. I appreciate but also find it kind of wild how much effort they put into altering the design so much.

                            Nice little project, did you have the head skimmed or block decked to increase compression ratio?

                              This is easier to reproduce on a bigger scale and at a smaller cost.
