Hey, I am looking into buying the Hamman e36 body kit with m3 side skirts. I have heard of cases where people would buy body kits made for their vehicle and end up having to do cutting and lots of sanding and stuff to get them to fit their car properly. Could some one tell me if this will be the case if i do get this kit and put it on a 1993 325is, the kit is at... http://www.2loww.com/92-98BMW3serieskitspage.html ...if this is the case, that i will have to do cutting (sanding is expected) then please let me know some details about what i will need to do so i can go into this with alittle bit of know how. If you have gone through this yourself and could share some information on the steps it takes to put on your bodykit and what you used to hold it on with it would really help me out. Things like how to get everything straight and wheather or not to use body fill in the gaps (or not to use it if they are not very large gaps). I am just new to body kits and would like all the insight i can get. Thanx

do not buy any of those. You would be ok to buy some of the lips, but all the kits are fiberglass.

the second a pebble hits your kit on the free way while your moving toward sthe pebble at 70mph and the pebble is moving at nearly as fast your fiberglass will be fucked.

lets not forget curbs, plants and such. ABS or Urithane plastic will be more fleixble then fiberglass. and last longer.

the m3 bodykit is pretty sweet, but wulley1 is right, there are alot of people who have it (with the exception of komodo9), but it looks like i might end up having to get it. does anyone know where i can find it, non fiberglass for a good price?
