    hey guys

    I am going to sound really dumb for asking these questions, but im new to the european drift scene.

    I currently have a E30 with a S50 swap which I have very recently picked up. Runs are drifts great. This is also my first BMW.

    I am moving to the UK in 2 months for job related work, so I was thinking of buying some parts while I am there for my build.

    Now since this is my first German Drift car, I dont know any companies that sell drift oeriended parts, except DriftWorks.

    I want to pick up some wider fenders, a angle kit, coilovers, bushings, wheels, seats, the list goes on.

    My question is, are there any other companies that are more E30 drift oriented?

    I am basically asking, where can I buy parts for my build since I will be new to the UK, and I wont know anyone who can help me out.

    Thank you!

    -Ali

    hello . Nothing specifically E30 Drift related only , the UK ain't got that many E30's to bother.

    There are a few places that do the stuff you've listed , but tbh Driftworks does everything except the fenders.

    Wider fenders depends on what style you want and if you are happy with replica parts that might not be a straight bolt on.

    There are various garages and stores that specialise in drift products and some that specialise in old BMW parts, but not one that specifically specialises in just drift parts for old BMW's.

    There are angle kits and bodywork parts for the E30 though, Wise Fab do a wide-angle lock kit for them.
    There's a wide-arch bodykit from a company in Europe here, but if you're currently in Germany you'd probably have a better chance at finding something over there and bringing it to the UK with you.
