i have a '89 325i convertible, lookin to maybe making a m3 replica, so obviously i need the flared fenders and a decent looking spoiler (yeah i know the trunks are different), so yeah, if you know a site or something that sells either, respond back and link me up

korman makes a kit that is similar to the m3 flares, it all depends on how much you wanna spend, you can get the whole kit from the dealer for prolly a little over 1000 bucks, i dont know how much korman sells theirs for. there is actually a convertible m3 replica on ebay, i dont know if it ended already, for 13,000
you cannot simply swap body panels in the rear. you could fit M3 front and rear bumpers with modification (not sure about the rear bumper on a cabrio), but trying to find a way to put oem m3 rear fenders on a convertible will be a very costly undertaking with alot of cutting and welding involved.
Honestly, with all the money you would put into making your car just looking like an E30 M3, you could make your car so unbelievably fast.
Estimated cost of E30 m3 fender conversion:
what you could do to your E30 performance wise for 4k$:
IE STage 3 springs 300
Bilstein SPort shocks 450
3.0L Stroker Kit 2k$
25/22 Sways 300
and you will still have another 1l$ to play with, you could probably do some LTW pistons and new differential and some other goodies and make your car REALLY NICE(exhaust/intake)
