Yeah, Cahsel has a set of original Zender box flares on their GRP spares page.

You may be a little confused here. As far as full fender flares go (Alpina, Schnitzer, etc), the front is the full fender, replacing the factory sheet metal, not an "overlay". The rears are all meant to lay over the existing panel. There is no non-overlay version. Some end after the actual flare, some wrap around the rear corner like the photo shown. Doing it right, you remove the majority of the rear arch to take advantage of the extended wheel opening of the flare. None are meant to be removable, unless you are using the flare as a cosmetic add-on, or you expect to have a lot of contact with other cars and want to swap them on the fly.

I like the ones in the photo cause Rivnut it on, vs bonding and filling glass to get seamless like the Ireland. I can’t find a pick of anyone’s besides this car that has enough flange to Rivnut to body

It may not seem like it from the photos on the site, but the IE rear flares have a flat to panel flange edge, similar to the one in the above photo that you can use a Rivnut on if you choose to.

Awesome, appreciate it! I will go with those then. Sadly they have photos of them installed

If you do go with the IE ones, try to get one of the guys to take a picture of the rear flare edge, so you can see it before placing an order. I'm close by and I could see if I could get someone to take a pic for me if you don't get a response quickly enough.

I asked for pics and they said to google them also they told me to contact a professional body shop… not the best customer service. So here I am hoping someone has something to show

The ones in your first pic on the red car are Schnitzer 'style' flares, the ones in the IE link look like Zender 'style' flares.  The Schnitzer style flare will accommodate a little wider wheel.  Wheels are a big deal, with any car, especially any flared car.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
