Almost every car company makes a “wide body” car these days with flared or blistered fenders. From Nissan Skyline GTRs to Subaru WRX STi’s, we see that wide body race car look on just about every performance car these days. What many don’t know though is where this design originated. One of the first cars to ever bring this look from the track to the streets was the BMW E30 M3 in 1986. The reason this look was ever even brought to the street was in fact due to BMW’s racing campaign at the time. The M3 was initially produced to meet the Group A Touring Car homologation standards of the time. This meant that a specific number of road cars needed to be built in order for that car to be eligible for racing in this league. This car was the beginning of one BMW’s most praised line of road cars and thus is an extremely important part of their history and racing heritage.

For the tougher scratches, wool pads are used to achieve maximum correction
And now for some of it all finished after the detail and clear bra
Hope you enjoy this car as much as we did!
