you can not get the rear bumpers to bolt right on. the rear quarter panels and fender arches are cut different on 88+ e30's and the bumpers will not line up on a pre88 e30. the front will line up and bolt up with little or no modification, but you will also need a newer front valance to go with it. check some local import salvage yards for a good set of bumpers, it is not impossible to get the rears on but it will take fabrication
