Easy Does It: BMW Wide Body Kit Requires Removing Rear Fender To Refuel…

People will often go to great lengths to make their cars look more aggressive, and increasing their width, along with a large rear wing, is among the most popular solutions.

As far as we can tell though, the blue E36 3-Series BMW doesn’t feature any other extreme mods. It is however quite wide, judging by the sheer size of the front fender as well as the apparent width of that modded rear fender that’s laying on the ground.

The image comes courtesy of the reddit page that specializes in showing off quirky car mods, and was posted last week by magicalgin. Moreover, someone with the username LazyLooser made a meme about about this particular car, too.

Ultimately, this type of mod is nothing more than a huge compromise. We guess the owner of the car likes its wider stance very much, but having to take down most of the rear fender each time he visits a gas station is borderline absurd. Surely there must be a way to get easier access to the fuel flap than tearing down the whole fender…



    I haven’t seen the full car but from this angle the fender flares look cheap.

      what’s even cheaper is he didn’t paint what’s under the fender…

    Justification for why YOU CANNOT do the wide body kit on your E36.

  • TheBelltower

    Ooooh, that’s bad.

  • James Koenig

    Supposed to use a fuel cell … Or at least mount the filler kneck in the trunk

  • The realization that the car original paints is under the so called “body kits”. Epic Fail.

    Seems magnetic parts are the new shit in body mod. Smart cars back in the days had detachable panels and fenders, so this is an evolution!

  • Honda NSX-R

    Because racecar bro.

    I would of cut the fender so that I wouldn’t have to remove it every time I need to fill up
