Well, plans for the bimmer will be slow in developing since I recently picked up this black beauty:
The IS is still in the garage with the fenders and front clip removed. Hopefully I get time to put the rust free fenders and doors on and paint it this summer as I no longer have a vehicle with a manual transmission. I know I will miss that soon. If not then maybe it will be a bonafide / widely recognized classic by the time I get around to finishing it.
