E36 1992 325i Track project

Hey all,

I bought my first car at 18 in May 2005 (pic 1) and it was my daily driver for 3 years. I tried to sell it in 2008 with no luck (which actually turned out to be just my luck - pics 3 and 4).

It then became an Auto-X & lapping project. After 2 years of wrenching and racing, it looks like pics 5 and 6.

No it's not the prettiest, but it does it's job quite well
