Ya that's gonna look sick so what are they gonna do about the side skirts? Gonna tie it into the front/rear quarters? The dish doesn't look like 4" at the front but could be the pics on my Iphone, can't wait to see it too I might have my fronts done this winter if yours turns out proper!

The fronts are a couple mm short of 4in. The pictures don't do it justice.Zoom on it and u can tell its pretty deep.

They're going to blend the side skirts with the fenders but I wanted it to look as stock as possible.

Can't wait to see the outcome I might have mine redone this winter depending how yours and Patmans come out, I like mine I just wish they were tied into the side skirts (didn't want this at first because i wanted it to look stockish)

From my understanding my shop said that widening the rear is more difficult to keep that stock look, because if u look at how the rear side skirts sorta tucks in.

When done right, wide body kits look cool. That PTG / GTR cars have always looked fab in my opinion. About wide body M's, there is a fellah at DAI in South OC who has not one, but two wide body M3s, and they're put together fairly well. Anyways, good luck and keep up the journal/progress photos.

I hope they dressed those cuts on the factory sheetmetal. Looks like a 2 year did the cutting.

Second, the choice of using universal fiberglass fender flares that are not even shaped to fit the body lines?

Widebody is never a cheap proposition, so why have it done cheaply?
