Rear Ended = Upgrades =)



Recently rear ended. Quick story: dog runs out into street. I brake. Guy behind me didn't. Result: Dog is ok. My car is not. Have not taken it to the shop yet so don't know internal damage. But visually inspecting the car, I need at a minimum a new trunk, rear bumper and rear diffuser. Since the other party is 100% at fault, I'm going to take this opportunity for some upgrades. Here is what I'm thinking.

- 1M style front bumper (ebay) $500
- CSL style trunk (ebay) $500 any other trunk options?
- Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser (ebay) $350
- OEM bumper? Any rear bumper options out there that compliments the 1M style front bumper without going w/ quad exhaust setup?

What do you guys think? Also, I'm planning on a matte Wrap. Haven't figured out the colors yet. How much do you guys think the wrap will run?

Thinking either matte yellow

or

Matte Blue

I personally don't like "hey look at me colors" but between the 2 above I actually like the yellow.

Matte Dakar yellow would be boss. I'd go OEM bumper, CSL trunk, quad diffuser, and quad exhaust.

I think Satin finish would be where it's at actually. Matte a lot of times comes out looking like Primer IMO.

But if you insist, go yellow.

what is the longevity of a wrap? I'm thinking of getting an e30 as a project car and most of the ones at reasonable prices have paint that is shot. I'm thinking a wrap would be fun, but don't want to have to do it every year...

Wow, that's expensive. A wrap only costs $700 here and everything else seems to be twice the price

OK. So I think I've decided. I'm not going to do the wrap after all. I still really love the graphite metallic. I really love the darker stealthy look of my car without actually going black on black. I mean, I fell in love with that color when I bought the car, so I 'm going to keep it that way. As for parts, I'm going with

- Schmiedmann CSL Trunk (body color match, no bmw or 135i badge)
- ebay CF diffuser (i'm leaning towards 2fin)
- Rieger Front bumper (hopefully it matches stock side skirt or maybe I'll add side skirts later if it doesn't look good)

Scratch the Reiger bumper. Just bought an Arkym bumper from a fellow member. So excited. Can't wait to get the car all put together.

I think you'll need to add something to the stock skirts, whether it be new skirts or the cf lip that goes underneath the side skirts. The 1M rep bumpers hang down about 1-2" lower than stock making it look a little disproportionate. Good decision on not going with a wrap. I would look at the Rieger diffuser, with such an aggressive front, you'd want something more aggressive in the rear as well especially paired with the CSL style trunk.

Got a link to the trunk you're going with?

+1 We have amazing vendors, I'd shoot them each a message and see what they can do for you. Everytime I have I've always been pleasantly surprised by what they can do for me!
