The wing is way OTT if you look upon what was used for the mid 90's ST and that wing provided more than enough down force.

Unless your intent is running Superlap where wings are designed by ex aero space engineers ( note ex ) then its perfect for FB brownie points but pretty much useless there after.

Mind you i like the adjustment part on it

If you search for 'e36 fender flare guards' you'll find them. Apparently it's a thing now.

And TBH I used to hate sh*t like this but nowadays I'm starting to appreciate the time, effort and ingenuity, even if not the aesthetic.

So, I initially thought "yuck" but now I think "go for it" and am looking forward to seeing what you can engineer.

Fair enough too and use to do the same, till i sat down and worked the hours it took to do something and time lost when it could have happened quicker.

I try to work smarter not harder, but there's still satisfaction and doing it yourself

Awesome stuff Garett. I kind of liked the idea of the audi all road flares but the new pandem style kits are ace as well! looking forward to the next update.

Started with a old wing core I had lying around, was determined not to spend any money on this wing and just to use what was around, got some front sway bar links off a e90 and front bumper to chassis support mounts that are usually welded to the chassis rails, also off e90 for the base of the stands, some alloy sheet I used for my floor that I had left over to build where I'm upto now, had to use some e30 handbrake cables to support the left and right sway of the wing which are also adjustable.

Still to do on the wing is getting an Audi 80 rear wing and cut down to size and place between the two stands attached to the boot and have it adjustable as well for a twin wing look. Then go through and clean up all the edges, bead blast and anodise the alloy, sand and paint the cores and make the wing blades for the side.

I toyed with all the ideas of using seat rail motors to make it adjustable from the cabin area which would have been fun but lack of time stopped this, might revisit this one day

Felony form or fitment lab over fenders might be the way to go, will give you 50mm rear and 30mm at the front.

What's the costing a on that?

I had some wheels arrive today one set of 17x8.5 et35 for use in the wet and a set of 17x9.5 et35 for use in the dry turns out with this offset I don't think I'll need to run any flares now, may just space the front guards out 5mm by slotting the holes that way can run the 9.5's up front with the 265/625/17 slicks

The tyre on the car now are 255/40/17 so when the slicks go on they should be lower profile and wider :)

About $700 US plus shipping. (they quoted $700 shipping cost but I can get it cheaper).

Go have a look at their web site. They have a good write up on "stance works" as well.

That's a bit more within reach than the pandom one
