I was never a huge fan of the e36 reps but that's a good price. You need the right front and rear valances to pull those off IMO.

No the lines don't flow well with the e30s boxy shape. More suited to the e36.

All 150 is going to get you is ford skirts. Maybe find a set of beat up IX skirts/flairs.

IX skirts will be much.... MUCH nicer than those. You can find them, they are just a little difficult to find though..

Guy was selling a set of is skirts for just a bit more than $150 on R3v just the other day. Had trouble selling them at that price. Might be able to snatch them up

schneller3er over on tech has a set for $100 plus shipping, really clean.

keep in mind you will have a pretty hard time mounting IX skirts with rolled fenders, and they won't really help with wheel clearance.
