Don't cut up the car! Make mods that are reversible...

You know.. unless you want to do otherwise... since it's your car and all...

As the only changes i will do on the outside are more or less the same as the one pictured above (evo spoilers and mirrors) the wheel choice is vital for me hence why i have the dilema....buy what he has spent a litle more and get something a litle more special.....BBS is for sure so far but cant decide on LM or RS

Yup! its the final stage leather dye , so if you get the bolster redone , and then dye the seat, it will be perfect.

I used this stuff before and I live by it. I used it on my steering wheel leather, and after 15 coats ( lol im a perfectionist) it was like factory new. Bonus, it didn t wear on a heavy use item like a wheel, so i recommend it 100%.

I need to get more to refinish my seats from wear marks! check it out, its not photoshop this product actually works!

EDIT: some of the links are fail, in terms of customer cars. Some people didn t prep the leather you gotta sand it down quite harshly if its cracking, otherwise it will look like ass.

Small update.
Cleaned the car and T-Cut it then waxed it.
Paint looks friggin good on it! Will get pictures soon as the wheather allows it.
Bought the rear bearings, axle bushes, handbrake cables, Handbrake shoes, discs and pads, eybrow spoiler gear and handbrake boots (bought in alcantara though), tensioner, belts, and braided hoses. Hopefully will change the bearings tomorrow.
We have decided to do a full leather retrim over the winter when i will strip the car and remove any rust underneath and the worst affected area under the fuse box.
Hopefully this week i will order the gear lever (quickshift) and all the bushes, the Evo front and rear spoiler and the suspension.
We are currently debating whether to re-do the engine or fit an S52. But i have some connection with TAUBER Motorsport in Germany and will do what they advice me.
One thing we know is that whatever we do it will have to be able to re do it as standard at any given time so we will not sell or through away anything.
Car needs work but the engine still pulls very strong and its good to be back in an e30.
