What's wrong with the wheel arches? They look pretty nice with them... :D

At that point you might as well run the IS skirts.

I'll probably keep them no the front but on the rear it won't be enough for all my massive tire fun.

it's going to be really hard to make that look right if you still plan on doing rear fender flares. If you still plan on flaring the rear fenders you should lookinto e30m3 skirts to start with, though you won't find those for 100 bucks.

Actually I found some for $150. But then I'd have to do shit to the front. I think it'll look alright with the ix front flares and a wide body rear. Worst case, I chop off the front flares and just do something with that.

Taurus side skirts, cut and extended downward to match super low front lip and rear valence. Pretty much take the taurus skirts and make them taller, maybe mold 2 together.

I hate the "front lip lower than the rest of car" look, its weaksauce.

PS: Those E36 joints are ugly as sin. Totally destroys the look of the car.

Totally agree with you on this subject! I would throw a hand grenade at the e30 with the twisties....well, maybe not but I would remove them from the car.

I heard that is the best way to remove them.
