    I've had the side mouldings taken off right the way around, bumpers and all. The gaps filled in and a new custom paint job. It only cost me £250(not including the price of the paint). I thought I would start a thread on this, because I've noticed that no-one else has had this done, as far as I can tell. Am I alone in thinking it makes the E36 look even more stunning(If that is possible)?

    Not really a fan of the euro/smooth look on the e36's, makes them look out of proprotion but if its what you wanted then...

    I like the slab sides.

    Are the repeater indicators in the mirrors?

    Not sure about losing the bumper inserts...... no towing eyes and access to mountings and hopefully an appropriate filler or I would expect cracking problems.

    Could do with some good bumper pics.

    I never really understood the use of them, they always fade and then you have to put some Mothers on them, then the Mothers wears off.. I just thought, why not remove them entirely? I did the same on my old 944, looked a hell of a lot better.

    I'll take some up close ups of the rear bumper tomorrow. Yeah, the indicators in the mirrors are all wired up and working. I don't know what filler was used, but It was done by a reputable shop, and whomever did the body work is simply a God. Honestly you wouldn't be able to tell they were ever there at all.

    I always found the saloon a ittle dated but slabbing out the sides makes them taller and brings the roof down. I like it.

    Not convinced by the front bumper personally but sides are big improvement
