Don't know if it's already been done, but I did some cleaning today and am satisfied. Along with my new exhaust setup =)

And don't say anything about the rad hose, I'll kill you. It works fine at the moment and I'm getting a new one.

here's a couple of pics of my '90iX, I'm still in the process of cleaning some more, it's still not to my liking yet, but it's getting there:) If I could just figure out what would cut through that yellow looking factory spray on shit that's all over the intake and on the shock towers I would be happy.

is that yellow sprayed wax shit really from the factory?

ive been struggling with it too. i thought it was some nasty antirust shit sprayed at one of those oil treatment places.

It's cosmoline, all cars that were shipped from germany were coated in it to protect them. The dealers used a special solvent to clean the exteriors of it but usually didn't do the engine.

Nice rad hose. *wiggle*

Is that an M3 firewall wiring cover? Or something M50 related?

The big part in the middle is the same as an e30 M3, the little bit on the side is 318-specific. The M3 version where the battery tray is covers the complete firewall. I was thinking to buy these covers for my car to clean it up a bit. I wonder why they didn't put these on at the factory, since a 318 has 'em...

It all came on the 318, I just took the wiring out of the M50 covering and zip tied it together, then put it in the stock 318 covering. It doesn't fit very well and need to be trimmed but it fits.
