TMCars Says it Can Turn Your BMW 3-Series E30 Coupe Into This with a Body Kit

What if the Confederacy had won the Civil War, Superman had been raised in the Soviet Union instead of the US, Adolf Hitler had never been born or JFK hadn’t been assassinated and so on?

In a similar fashion, what would have happened to the 3-Series' styling if BMW had constantly evolved the shape of the E30 (produced between 1982-1990, though some body styles continued for a few more years) and hadn't moved on with the E36 and its successors?
