    You want them to install a body kit or do custom metalwork to the existing chassis?
    Have a pic of your e31?
    What are you thinking you’d like to do?!

    You sparked my interest. I have an e31 too and have mulled the idea

    Not looking to cut corners, most of my Cars have been one off customs but were Fiberglass. As always I’m willing to pay to play but the work must be on point.

    looking to do custom metalwork to the existing chassis/body. Nothing wild, l love the look of the car just want to bring out a few of the existing lines by around 2” or so. I don’t want the car to scream “KIT” .
    I have a set of 3 piece Alpina rims that I would love to set her on.

    the rims

    Pictures of the Alpina 3 piece rims.
    Note: the tires came with the rims and will not be used due to the aggressive stretch fitment

    Excellent wheels to start with. A 2” kit would complement it very nicely.

    Where in NY are you?
    Planning to hit up Gutenfest this June in Maplewood NJ?
