Hey guys,

I am a really old member, but finally I have something to post again! My friend is working on his car and I took this video. He had a BMW E30 325, but it's a 350 now haha..it's not running yet, but the engine and muffler are installed already. It will probably be done in the summer next year, so then I will take and post video's of the car up and running. Well..enough talking, here's the video :

The exhaust is custom made. It's an X-pipe. The owner of the car used to be on this forum a lot btw..in the photoshop section. He's "huckle". But anyway..I see a totally different picture you posted here, but its ok to post it. But it would be nice if you'd add a link to the video or website to it. I will post more if the car is ready or whenever we feel like taking vids or pics.

Holy crap is that ever! Not only is the project bad-ass, but that photograph is really good too! Perfect with the car in the background.

haha thanks. The photograph contains 27 photo's. It's a panoramic HDR. Which means..The HDR uses 3 pictures with different light strength (so one dark pic showing details in the light parts, one average pic showing about everything averagely and one light pic showing details in the dark parts. Those are combined to one picture with the best of all showing). So I made 9 HDR pictures and stitched those to this panoramic one.

How's the progress? On track for being ready this season?

I don't think you mentioned the muffler brand either -- eisenmann? Sure looks like one -- beautiful sound whatever it is jeez

The muffler is custom made. No brand. He hopes to finishes the car in April. He's done with most of the electronics now, then he can start putting back all the interior parts. And finally the most exciting thing..getting new papers for it and hoping it will be approved.

I also have a picture of the interior right now haha..can't see much though..
