Members opinions on E36 Esquiss widebody kit?

Just wanted to get some opinions on what other members think of the E36 Esquiss widebody kit? For those of you who aren't familiar with the kit pics of Jon's 325is. Looking at starting another project and love this kit. Let me know what you guys think....

As a race car, nice
As a show car, eh not my thing but it's not that outrageously done
As a road car, no

This kit actually makes E36 look like a car.

I texted Ryan Castro and he gave me the company in Torrence, CA that is the sole distributor of the kit. The number wasn't working so I had to email the company in France and they gave me the new information. If your cousin needs it let me know. I also emailed Jon Sibal and he gave me the shop that installed his widebody. They're located in Gardena, CA.

Haha yeah I was never too crazy about the E36 either, but think this kit on it actually makes it stand out more.

I say go for it but make damn sure the body shop knows what they are doing and blends it in very well. The car looks great for road in my opinion, just lose the stickers all over it.

If you have to go widebody thats the only one that should be considered. Of course, when you use Sibal's car as an example I don't see how anyone could hate it.

Pics of Ryan's car with the full Esquiss kit on it. Sibal's has a custom front bumper to show the intercooler more.

Makes it look like an E30 M3. A little too aggressive and attention seeking but I like it.

You plan on doing this to your E46 M?

No, I was planning on installing the kit on an e36 m3. I agree, the wb kit resembles the e30.

agreed. I like the subtle/aggressive look. This reminds me a lot of the E30M3 as well which everyone adores, myself included. I will be honest and say I do not really like the sideskirts/rear bumper/wing on the silver widebody. I would opt for the LTW wing, stock rear bumper, and I am not too sure where I would stand on sideskirts. What colour M3 are you looking at making this car?
