maybe they ment to roll the inside of the fenders.. well it is permanent and i dont think it will become a problem if you sell it because it doesnt harm any part of the car and you cant see it. it is more of a plus in my eyes.. lets say you sell it to some kid who wants to put big wheels on his car, he wont have to worry about rolling the fenders anymore.. from what i hear it should be around $50 w wheel well

Im thinking of flaring my rear arches, does any one know what type of work is involved, I did roll mine to, but it aint good enough!

im running 17x9 Alpinas on my e36, im also putting 10-15mm spacers on the rear to give it that Euro look!

any help will be great, just want to understand what will be involved!

cheerz

p.s rubber is 235/40/17 dropped 15mm, but wont to go to 40mm rear

well if your putting fender flares or a widebody kit you will have to bring them to a body shop and have them sculpted with your car so it looks oem.. its not just like the fender flares you pt on your truck ya know
