Ew. I voted for the Z3, I thought it would look good, but after seeing this picture I can't be so sure. I would like to see one that was bought premolded on a clean lude.

Lmao, Yeah im going to go with stock, So far i got the estimate and its $1800 to fix it so far, thats not including whatever clanks in the motor bay and if their is any damage under the bumper.

And DOes anyone have a stock passenger side fender that is straight and good? Its gunna get painted so that dosnt matter. BUt if anyone has one for free and i pay shippinhg or is selling one cheap please let me know it would help me greatly, after all ive been throught lately i cant really afford this. lol..

I had aero gear Z3 fenders on my first 4th gen, and they looked WAYYYY cleaner than the pic posted above, the slits were smaller and cleaner looking...But fiberglass anyhting is usually a no no cuz it shatters on impact..or cracks, both suck I say OEM with a lip kit (=

i was going to say. i have a pair of fiberglass z3 fenders just like that blue lude. i gota say mine looks nice primered. its all shaved. only 1 side though. lost interest in the z3's way back and stuck with it and still today 1 is complete and the other one needs a few more layers of resin.
