Chef

Thanks guys.

The yellow plates will definitely stay, as much as I love my cars having GP plates in CPT to upset people, it's just not worth the change. Haha.

Ermmm...
A few engine bay pics for us deviants would be good.

So here is the story again....well a version of it because I don’t actually remember what all I said Rofl

So for those of you that don’t know my origins, I started off with a little online forum called e30clubSA many many years ago which the led me to BMWFanatics later.

Exactly that guy! Rofl
Geez, even I forgot about all those various names that were given me that time hey.

More pics will follow soon once I have laid a hand on the engine bay etc. It needs a good clean and detail, hopefully soon I will get around to that.

As I've already said to you, I love this car Devon!Blowheart

It is a stunner in person because it is so original and neat. I think you can either keep it super stock or start modifying, the decision is yours. I would probably just make this thing OEM+ and stop, but that is just me.

RE: Back to the future - e30 content
Nice one this car is very clean for its age! Praise I would do a full suspension upgrade on this car as they are very sloshy around corners and besides a nice drop would look good.

Will you be keeping it Auto or any plans on doing a manual conversion?

I was driving her last week and I can feel I need to at very least do a suspension refresh.

If I upgrade the suspension then it will be a full 5 lug replacement with M3 and Z3 parts and then a lowering kit or coilies.
But like Avi said, this car is so clean and neat, it will be a shame to do too much to it, hence me thinking just keep it as stock as she is bar one or three mods to make it OEM+ including a decent drop.

But first it will be to refresh everything and service it properly.

And a full detail including underneath.
I want to put in about 40-50 hours into detailing this car still. It needs it desperately.

Wow, amazing.

How does one go about to make rims / wheel cap covers that mirror one's face as you did? Please advise, thanks and regards.

The car is so incredibly clean and original so I want to keep it just like this in terms of its originality but at the same time there are things that I would like to just make my own too smile bounce

Hey buddy yeah we had strokers those days on the e30forum... just drop it, rims and a sweet freeflow otherwise leave it stock... although a Manual conversion might make even more sweeter to drive... Congrats on a gorgeous purchase!!

My man!
Damn! Been forever!
Do you still have an e30?
Your stroker was a beast! Inlove

As you say, a simple manual conversion will add that bit extra for driving enjoyment. The slosh box on this thing is nothing sexy at all.
At least a manual will make it feel that much better.

Heya... yeah its been too long funny I never bumped into yet in CT are you still here?

Yes got me a stock 87 325i Bluebiggrin
