Not to be a debbie does dallas downer but I would've put in some kind of quad exhaust since you were doing body work. Plus a more aggressive front bumper would make that car TEETS

It took a lot of work but very different from where it started. Especially after the accident.

I guess I just wanted to show that we can take care of HEAVY metal work.

Thanks, sure thing. I would just need a few bucks to take care of hotel/food. Ohhh....and the amount of labor that would be put into your car. I could use a semi-vacation.

I don't have many pictures of how I widened them but they were cut/plastic welded/cut/plastic welded/wire mesh/more plastic welding...etc etc.

Same here. I remember everyone's jaw dropping when the e46 came out...especially after the ///M. I personally never got that "gut" feeling about the e90x or f30. The f30 is what the e9x SHOULD HAVE BEEN. Just my opinion

LOVE it.

I love the wheels and I love the widebody. It was actually surprisingly well done unlike most other custom widebodies.

Most of all, I love Imola Red! Not that I'm biased, or anything...
