Thought Iíll make a new thread of the cabrio as it was featured in Performance BMW (Nov 2010 issue) and the pictures can be now posted on the internet.
The pictures were taken by Anssi Ranki
and me helping him during two nights in July. None of the pictures is photoshopped, believe it or not.
For example this pic was shot at around 3am (quite bright in the nights of Finland in summer time):
I bought the cabrio as a bone-stock, black E30 325 cabrio 1987 pre-facelift model in Easter 2005 and started modifying it (sold the old engine within a week of buying the car). The only stock parts in the cabrio are the side windows, fuse box and heater control panel so pretty much everything has been changed / modified (all done myself & the help of friends, expect the paintjob and interior retrim). This summer I drove around 6000km with the cabrio as it is my daily summer car Ė not a trailer queen!
The full spec list and project info can be found here.
