    Most people don't bother, other than bumper and skirt kits (RYM's 318 / M3 looked awesome).

    How 'wild' a bodykit were you thinking of?

    Personally, I'd just go for the staggered wheels look. Buy the right offset, maybe roll your arches and have 225's front and 265 rear! Reasonably subtle, but very cool.

    There's nothing worse than when your body kit dwarfs your wheels.

    I just want a wider rear as i like the wide look. I am sitting on 225's all round want to get at least 245 with the current set of alloys I got on now.

    Just a nice wider body would look nice.

    I'm also looking for a similar look kit - my arches need doing soon too, so it makes sense to cut them off and upgrade.

    Though you should be able to fit 245-265's on the back already (265's are prob best on 8" plus wheels) even if you need a small wheel spacer to correct the offset.

    oh yeah. I know the off-set what is needed for the non M3 E36 is 35-45 anything in them is fine. but i bought this car with alloys on which i cant tell the offset on all i know is they are 8JJx18.

    Thinking about taking it to a local body shop and get it done. but this ant gonna be done for a while as it could cost up to 1000 so not in no rush lol. would like to see some wider E36-non M3's.

    You can buy a wide arch kits from here for a compact but am not sure they will do coupe / saloon versions aswell.

    There are loads of rally cars with wide arch modifications around but not many road cars.
