Rear end wide body conversion

Is there a wide body conversion kit for the rear? If so where can it be bought and price. Thank you and hope to hear responses.

You cant just bolt anything onto the rear to make it wider like the front, so fab work will need to be involved to make any rear widebody work, even if you buy the 1M rear quarters.

Well that sucks, does the car look good with just the front wide body and do they make a front lip for it?

No problem There's always the option of manipulating your rear quarter panels but that can require deep pockets especially when done right.

What do you mean by deeper pockets. Oh yeah money well the front is going to be a stretch so I'm probably not going to do the back because I will also have to get rims

You can fit iCarbon and ICarbon Rep lips on the ER front end. You just need to cut part of it.

Here are some photos of the ER front end on their Car

From the looks or stance perspective, the front only 1M conversion falls way short compared to a full widebody. From a practical stand point it does let you run a nice square set up.

Performance wise, you will be in good shape with the front end only. It totally transforms the way the car handles. With a LSD and a square set up with 9.5's on my car, the thing handles like it is on rails.

Would it be weird to go 10" up front and 9.5 " in back

yes, with an ER kit or 1M kit, I recommend 9.5 front. ET25+- with 265 or 275.

his name is sk8fe... in MY opinion it looks nice, with a fender roll inthe back you COULD make the optical illusion of a wide rear as well.... he even posted a walk around vid in the thread.

You just need to purchase 1m rear panels from BMW and get them fitted, a lot of effort though
