Nice and clean, about ready for paint-

Josh I love it. Looks really good with the black wheels and black rocker panels. Nice example of an E36

Oh, man. Don't forget the BMW Motorsport windscreen banner that I had as well. :paranoid I look back on that and I'm sure glad I moved past that phase, but when BFC was the only option out there for opinions, it's easy to get going down that road. :facepalm

At any rate. This is a great thread and I look forward to seeing what you continue to do with your e36 as well as that 5er. (throw some spacers and those style 44s on the 5er till you can get some other wheels!)

haha thanks Jake, im stoked to play with the e34 and see where it goes but its definitely in your 2k category, it needs a little love for sure. the tires on there now are actually studless snows so i might keep them on those wheels for winter but if i dont they are getting spacers for sure, good call :D

slapped in some e46 sport seats and a zhp knob. mtech II wheel is next.

These seats are way more comfy than the original e36's, and fit pretty good .Great upgrade for anyone thats thinking about it.
