It's not my cup of tea...
But it looks like new, very good condition!

That's one of the better renditions and applications of a wide body kit. I'd rock it.

Seeing other wide body kits, I think this is the nicest one so far and the engine by Frank Fahey. Wow.

So it fetched $39,250. Surely it would have been worth more if it hadn’t had all that money spent on it and left original? A prime example of more = less ( but I’d love to own it!)

Not a fan of any type of add on body additions or modifications on the E24 I think you immediately lose the grace that abounds from the original design.
I can admire the work and effort involved in this one but I'd rather have the body stock, plus there must be an enormous amount of bodyfiller on it .
Nice car for the right person though .

Nearly a year on……is the current owner on this board, or has anybody heard of the car’s whereabouts?

Coming back to this reminds me how this wide body rendition reminds me of an M3.....on steroids. :shock:

When you compare the two, you can see just how much better-looking the E24 is!

The widebody looks nice; For my tastes, I'd have replicated the e30's rear with squared off flares, no intake and had a separate duck tail spoiler. the integrated swooping look doesn't do it for me. I'd also ditch the wheels for some period BBS style wheels. But that's just my opinion; the beauty of cars is each person customizes to their taste.

I really think BMW should have given the M6 the widebody treatment.

What I'd really like is a wide body E21. It's like a miniature E24.

Now that's cool =D>

The side skirts look, uh, vaguely familiar :roll:

My first BMW was an E21, 320 i S package, great Recaro seats \:D/

I should know, since my 6er has a set in them now, have for years :-"
