i like the fenders on the m3, but the 325 is more practical and cheaper to maintain, etc....do the fenders on the m3 fit on the 325?

no, becaue the fenders on the M3 are part of the whole shell, you would need to raplace most of the body in order to do that, costs lots of money, more practical to just get an M3

i guess more practical if you want the fenders. but they are more expensive to get, and to repair/restore.

it can be done. however it is a lot of work. you have to have someone who is very skilled at body repair to do the job.

you would need to change your front and rear valance and bumpers, and it also wouldnt look right without the M3 rear deck (i think the rear windshield is different too). plus you would probably need a set of spacers to make the wheels look right under the buldges.

I believe they make a kit for the standard e30 that incorperates m3 style fenders. It does not use the oem fenders however. But it would probably be your best bet with out doing some major body alterations. I will ask my e30 budy and see who makes it.

The rear window is longer, there is a shortner on the trunk, the rear is shorter, so the entire rear and front end is different.

Carlton Auto is the name of the manufacturer of the wide body kit. I dont have a link though. You might try a search on google. I believe there is a few more companies that make a kit like that but I'm not 100% sure right now. If I find anymore I'll post it.

hmm...google didnt find anything on carlton autos, atleast not an aftermarket company or whatever...just a bunch of used car sales places.

Yeah I tried a search as well. I think my friend found it in a magazine. I will ask him if there are any sites online that have their stuff.

Ok I found it. Beware though....other kits on this site may be offensive. Some of the riciest kits I have ever seen. Here is the link.
http://www.deltastyling.co.uk/

Once in the site click on carlton and then it will show a pic of an e36 m3. click the text under that. then click the text under the picture of the e30.
