IMO It looks like its ready for the monster truck rally. If that thing was slammed, it would look nice. I just really dont like the look right now, just my honest opinion. Maybe a different color of rim?

Thanks for the compliments and interest in my project. I bought a totalled 97 E36 M3 for the parts i needed. I payed $4,500 for the whole car initially just for the 3.2 drivetrain. All the suspension conversion stuff was a bonus. I just swapped the E36 M3 rear rotors and calipers for the M-roadster rear rotors and calipers, so it really didn't cost anything besides the original price i payed for the totalled M3. I sold the interior from the E36 M3 for $1000, and various body parts that weren't damaged for an additional $800. The total cost after subtracting the parts i sold was $2,700. As far as what's involved, it's pretty much a bolt in with only minor machining on some parts. Yea my car looks high cuz i haven't lowered it. You may not like the color of the rims, but for the $500 i payed for them, i'm willing to live with the color, plus it looks a little different than the average.

Nice! that's a wicked deal ..Looks good! shure it will run even better.

Paint the rims gun metal or something... It looks too much like a subaru rally car... it's cheaper if you get a paint shop to do it insted of a wheel refinishing shop.

It could also use a front lip spoiler.. maybe the reiger infinity *th-up*
