Think I'll focus more on the maintenance items before I even think about interior, already love it to bits anyways.
I have to say, E30's truly are amazing, unlike any car I've ever driven, can't wait to get through the stage zero tune up and see how it feels then!

Just wait until you drive a non-vert, 5spd E30... then you'll realize how good they really are

wow lotsa enthusiasm over here!
You'll come to have a love/hate relationship with the car

I've thought about selling mine a number of times while it was in storage (every year it seems lol) Then you take it out for the first nice day and you fall in love with it all over again, you then proceed to smack yourself in the face for ever having the "S" word cross your mind.

Haha, I hope I'm ready for all that entails driving such a car. Great to be surrounded by such knowledgeable and generous people. I'll be sure to post my progress, mainly just so people can point out what I'm doing wrong :p

the coupe is more solid and less noisy but get the right suspension set up, some nice tires/rims; change all the necessary bushings and maybe a few performance upgrades like a chip and you'll have lotto fun in it!

welcome to max, looks like a clean ride, if you reallyy fall in love with it madly, do the 5 speed swap, it will be well worth it, i promise.

enjoy the ride

Ahh thanks Baron, I've sourced some black leather cards now, so I think that will be alright.

Black headliner, dash and rear parcel shelf will match the cards.
