Hi all,
long time lurker on the forum,I bought denis9's black E21 recently and as promised I said I would get involved in the forum,so here I am posting up a few pics of my take on it.
I know a lot of people will scratch their heads in disbelief that I put 13's on it and changed the indicator lenses to the oe ones but I just prefer the more original look,each to their own and all that.
I'm debating to be honest in taking off the front and rear spoilers? What do people think yay or nay on the spoilers?
Anyway cheers Denis,thanks for a lovely car and sorry if you think I'm ruining all your hard work. :wink:
Heres a pic of a before

and after with 13's and oe lenses.Image

Very nice car , i dont know the previous owner because i'm new but congrats to both , very nice car! by the way .. the bbs front spoiler and your rear spoiler witch i can't see very well they cant be more original for the car. They were sport options for this cars and the look they give the car is amazing! Like the wheels tho! look good on that color!

I think it looks good on the 13's and as everyone usually bins them, then fits 15's or whatever, it's nice to be a bit different. I like the front spoiler and you could always buy a bare boot lid, then swap them as the fancy takes you? I'm doing the same thing myself.

Good to see you putting your own stamp on your car. :thumbsup

Love your e21 mate,I like the rear spoiler ads a bit of oldschool performance styling I'm not a fan of splitters but yours looks good love the wheels!! Also the best e21 color
