    Rocket Bunny Vert

    So I bought a 91 vert for super cheap (rebuilt title) and it was all original. Well except the front bumper.



    Bought some wheels and lowered it a bit



    Found a hardtop



    And a custom interior on the cheap



    Upgraded front brakes



    Took some sexy pics



    Reinforced some parts







    THEN CUT IT TO SHREDS(+new wheels)

    Next up was putting the kit on. I decided to try my hand at painting (I suck) but luckily it is plasti dip so it is coming off and going to a real painter.



    Side by side of another e30



    I still need to widen the style 5s in the rear so that it will fill out the rear wheel wells, and do some more trimming.

      You use a pandemic kit or a replica? I've been trying to find someone using a rep kit to get a feel for quality.

        This build was so promising up until the 10th picture :(

          This is another one of those transition year verts too, so he just cut up his 15k vert.

              Bummer. I'm so sad you actually care what I think about your car... build it how you want, besides it's too late now. And it was salvage title anyways

                I'm not really much of a fan of these types of things, would prefer real m3 panels, but it'll be easier to get a feel for it when it's all painted the same color.

                    I mean at the end of the day its a salvaged vert and your car so do what you want, but I just don't get why people like that kit. In my opinion it completely ruins the lines of the e30. BMW already built the perfect wide body for the e30, but you do you.

                      Looks nice

                      but lets hold judgement until the car is finished. I want to see the fenders blended and painted.

                        Like almost everyone else here says, the best wide body is the M3. However, I thought it wasn't kosher to put M3 kits on non-SXX motor swapped E30s? I'm new to the E30 world so please correct me if I'm wrong.

                        Having said that, I think the pandem kit is alright. I like it more than the non-M3 widebody kits that were available before it came out. I think the rear flares would have looked better if they transitioned into the taillights more. In the end, this was a far from a perfect E30 to begin with so I'd say go for whatever strikes your fancy. I think the kit will look a lot better if painted black as well.

                          I like it OP. As you said rebuilt title so fuck it. The hardtop looks good!

                            Thanks to all who want to see something different. There is still a lot of work left to do on the kit, and will be updating this post as I get it done.

                              Who gives a shit what people say on forums...I for one love the pandem kit but definitely think it should be matched w power to suit the look.

                              Again, don't worry about what other people think or say, there's so many haters here who think they know what's best for your car.

                              Post progress pics!!
