Nice Trev *th-up* , a set of M Parallels, stock amber corners and side markers & an optional drop and it will be perfect.... atleast for me ;) ....Oh and a smoked convex plastic front plate cover.
But the most important part is done.... getting a clean original one.

Thanks!
Yes hopefully, assuming I have time this summer.

Not sure about the drop yet, but i already ordered my wheels :D
I just need to decide on tires. I'll be bugging Jay come spring for his 245/35/18 recommendations.

I completely agree, i hate black wheels.

That said i bought and it came with those wheels in mid-september, I wasn't going to bother at that point. Plus the wheels had good tires on them (Goodyear F1s GS-D3s).

I already ordered my new summer wheels, and I already have red/white tails. As well as amber corners, if i decide to rock all corners. But i'm leaving it as it for the winter.

please dont drive it in the winter
It will be kept in a garage and driven 3-5km per day and the odd times on weekends.

It shouldn't get beaten much, i'm sure it will be fine, it's not made of sugar it wouldn't melt.

Now for the big question.

If you had the chance of choosing between the two.

Would you have opted for an s52 in your e30. Or the current e36 m3?

Looks amazing. I also enjoy the looks of winter mode compared to that of the cosmetic state you received it in.

I'm happy with the e36 for now. I still wouldn't mind owning another e30 in the future when i have more garage space.

Looks good!

Is that the Beatties Basics just off of 4th avenue? (In your winter picture)

I've always had a soft spot for factory BMW rims. :)


Edit: Also needs more low next summer!
