That last pic shows orange peel so I'm guessing the paint job was done on the cheap?
Overall though, there aren't too many E30's around here that look that nice from 10ft.

easy enough to get rid of the peel..just wet sand, cut and polish and you've got a million dollar looking paint job at a bargain's price. ;-)

If he tries to wet sand peel that bad he'll go through the clear and then it's ****ed. Looking at the edge of the trunk in that close up it looks thin. I have seen it so many times. Also doing a proper cut with an orbital can be real tricky, it's easy to burn the clear.

In my opinion, I'd just leave it alone.
