E82 1m Bodykit Conversion

This kit looks pretty good from CA UK. Does anyone has any experience installing this kit?

I am close to placing my order but I am not too sure how to work on the rear fenders since it is attached to the frame.

Never heard of it, but please keep us updated on the process. Looks very interesting.

So, part are about 3500, and they offer 15% on parts ordered outside of Europe so around 3050, installation (at their rate) 2600.

So figure around < 6000 all together.

I think if there was an option here in the states to convert an e82 into a 1m body for less then 6K many people would jump on it.

+1 and their install cost seems a little high. Unless it will require some modification for a good fit.

Actually $3K for a front bumper, fenders, side skirts, rear bumper, and diffusor is pretty reasonable.

where you getting $3k from? it's 3.6k + shipping (at least 1k).. then $200-$300/panel (average.. $150/skirt/guard) for a high quality paint job

so even a rough estimate, that's gonna be $5800 on the car.

a very expensive mostly cosmetic modification :/

Besides a complete cosmetic redesign? The ability for a larger front bumper that will actually accommodate a real replacement oiler cooler. Brake ducts that actually cool your breaks.

There are many benefits, plus a lot of people wanted 1M's that weren't able to get them because of the limited production. This offers a solution.

Not trying to be rude but I've been emailing back and forth with the company for the past few days and they've offered it to me for 1860.00 plus 440.00 shipping via sea crate.

That's $3,600 shipped and is not an outrageous price for all those panels (assuming figment is decent). You have to remember its like buying a widebody kit for any other BMW. Your other option is prior design for $5999 plus shipping from Germany.

thats really cheap. I would love to just buy the rear fenders and bumper to compliment my ER front end. The car would be as wide as a 1M but still look like a 135i.

That's a great idea, I'd suggested giving these guys an email they've been really responsive to me.

Do it! And post it up including installation location/costs, etc.

I'd even come down to check it out in person if that's cool.

Don't worry, in either case you'd be staring at tail lights.
