Someone Thought This BMW M3 Body Kit Was A Good Idea…

Modifying old Bimmers is still a thing, apparently, and when the car is an M3, purists are entitled to call it sacrilege.

Starting with what used to be the range-topping version of the 3-Series, from the E36 generation, this owner wanted to make it unique, and he managed to do just that, albeit not necessarily in a good way.

Posted on Reddit, the images reveal the car fitted with a custom body kit that made the fenders much wider, modified the bumpers on both ends, applied a weird pattern to the doors, a boot lid mounted spoiler, and made room for a new set of taillights.

The owner then chose to finish the aftermarket parts in a bright orange paint, which comes in contrast with the original blue shade of the car, with the blue folding soft top, and with what seems to be a red leather interior, and white dashboard.

Now that’s a good enough recipe of ruining a car that still struggles to become a collector’s item, isn’t it?

    Well…. At least it should be pretty well protected against door dings…

    Wonder how he got the concrete body kit smooth for painting.

    assuming this is a real thing, the level of stupidity is off the charts. For both the driver and shop owners.

  • f1300

    Doesn’t look like it had been a M3 before being killed…

  • Jay

    It would look so much better after it rolls off of a cliff.. a really really steep cliff. With lots if rocks.

  • Stephen Baxter

    At least it was an E36, i guess

  • Martin O’Byrne

    It’s a real M3, the last MOT shows a recorded mileage of just 21321 just to add insult to injury.
