I like the looks of the factory skirts on the E36. Does anyone know if they can be easily installed on an E30 (89 325i)? Or, is there an aftermarket one made for the E30 that looks similar to the E36? Most of the ones I've seen are very plain or have sloping lines that cross over near the center.

u can use E36 sides but it takes alota work and isnt for the average person.

most E30 sides are "plain", and it looks good on the E30. Take for example the Mtech 2 side skirts, there not fancy at all, and thats the best part about them. nice and simple. I bough Zender sides and there coming in the mail this wendsay.. there not as good as the mtech but ther still gonna look sweet.

here is a pic of the E36 sides on an E30

Thanks schneider252,

I PM'd the owner of the car with the E36 skirts and he was not too keen on anyone else copying what he had.

Will you post pictures of your E36 skirts and a description of what you did to get them on?

Old School Bimmer, Your side skirt looks great, however I prefer the one Jordon has with the taper from the front and back not crossing over. It looks like he formed his own skirt using the stock e30 one as a template. Thanks for the photo!
