    IMO, this would be on a track/weekend car that had the engine to back up such an extreme look. Anything else, and you're just a stancy Hype Beast.
    most people with a fast e30 don't need a shitty body kit to get out on the track and put some laps in.

    99% of rocket bunny kits are on stance cars or garage queens.

          I feel like the guys over at rocket bunny create these kits with drifters/motorsports in mind. Maybe im wrong, but if you want your car to look fast, at least back up that bark with some bite.

          I personally wouldnt own this kit, cuz I cant justify the cost...and I have S54 aspirations.

            I'm torn between the LS and S54, I love the S54 and LS both. One is simpler, more reliable and lighter with a better transmission for cruising and tq that'll toss you in the seat plus dirt cheap mods, the other has that never ending power band and 7.8k redline stock, less tq but the pull for such a deep redline makes it a rocketship, it also sounds more correct for a bimmer... ugh. Can't really loose either way though haha

              LS E30 is absolutely bananas man...Joel "Olddrunkensailor" had an LS swapped 318iS that was batshit fast.

              I will still personally go with the S54 in the future though

                    Hahah I'm watching vanos rebuild videos instead of homework and thinking about how many little balls, springs, and plungers that are in that timing unit compared to the chev, the LS has a chain without a freakin tensioner! Its so simple lol

                    edit: The s54 has an oil pump for your oil pump! hahahahaha

                      Exactly.

                      It's still a brick you are shoving through the air. All that bodywork offers little "real" improvement in speed/lap times. If you look at those who are serious about Time Attack/hill climbs/open race series..etc. you'll see the rear wing design is much different.

                      Don't want to get in to a big aero discussion, which has been beaten to death in the track section and other sites..

                        The beauty of these cars is how good they look without any body mods in my opinion. Just about everything ruins it for me, I'm not even a fan of ix side skirts. But what do I know, I drive on tires too big and stance to tall.

                          I'm dreaming about a shorter stroke big bore LS that will have the valvetrain and cam to do 7500, That, I think, will be fun hahaha. I'm also plotting 180 degree headers for the sounds 500 hp is fairly easy with one lol
