e30 eta project

hey guys i have a 86 eta that i got not too long ago and i wanted to start a new project. my plans where to boost the eta but apperantly its not that easy due to softwear issues. so after i posted a couple of forums asking for info and help i decided to get rid of the eta and go with an "i" m20 thanks to the help of alot of members. here is lil stuff i already did to the car and ill keep posting more soon.

thats the eta when i first got it




i went with xxr 002 wheels 16x8 0 offset

dropped the car 2.3 inches



they seem to look pretty good on the car and fit prefectly after i dropped it



i decided to paint the car to make it look fresh it had a bunch of lil dings and lil scratches that pissed me off and some one keyed my car

the car turned out pretty good thanks to ottawa auto body. they did a really amazing job, (real good people)


well till now the car is starting to look alot better and time for the swap and the boost and ill post that real soon if u guys got any ideas for me please let me know i wanna make this car actually look really nice and preform well

looks pretty good so far, imo shadowline the window trim and it will make it look that much better.
