ahh docg if you read it again then you would know that i meant 3 as in three different beemers and yes i know the e34 is a 5 because the e34 thats getting done up is mine so there is a e30 - 3 series , e34 - 5series , e36 - 3 series

Arush, I will...I need to talk to you soon. Lot of new stuff coming up, but I really like the fact that your're getting practice with Beamers...The E30 does it belong to who I think it belongs to, cuz he seemed to be very happy with his current engine etc...I need details!!!

cheers:

Would you do the bulging fenders too as is in this 2-door example?

That E90 M3 type air dam chin, would look good on the E46 (as it is a rounder car), but it looks a bit out of place on this E36, as the rest of the car is pretty boxy, although I love the E36 very much, perhaps the airdam on the E36 M3 could also be looked at.

I am sure you can turn it better than the example you have posted!

E46 front arches, E30 rear arches, E36 front, I think the design is nice but has too many influences from too many model ranges! But then again that's my personal opinion!

Im game for all front and rear wheel arches like the E46 M3 too.... Who knows, we might not go in for a widebody at all. I know its hard for Abix to resist that though

well docg in that case yes in d kid who kicks a&^ .. but ya the body kit would surely be a stunner and plus it'll just be done right by experimenting because as far as i know no one has moded their beemers in india to this extent that is being planned here btw planning something for the e34 as well in exterior mods

HAHA wait my friend, you never know what's in the offing...I know loads about your Beamer... At least since the last time I talked to Arush...

Honestly the E34s are beautiful but the 2.5 you have with all the goodies...it's still a much heavier car that what the offing has to offer................

Alls I can say now is it warms my heart that we're finally in a position to mod Beamers...The problem is that the offing has been around for too long. But all that will change soon enough!

Arush dude get all your practice in buddy, cuz I don't want to be a lab rat!

And WRT the E36 body, please keep it traditional, widebody with massive wheel arches will look awesome, but don't verture too far into the newer designs of air dams and bumpers...Keep it oldschool That's where the beauty lies! [IMO]

Sounds neat! I eagerly wait to hear about the engines that you guys are plonking in them. Used BMW 6 cylinders, or even better....used M3 engines?!
