The perfect e30?

I was thinking that if I had more money and could do some perfect upgrades to my e30...would they be like this?

INtake
-K&N

Shocks
-

Springs
-

Chip
-JimC

Exhaust
-Supersprint

Body Kit
-Mtech*

Lights
-Euro Ellips
-Xenon Retrofit

Rims
-ACS**

Tint
- %

The Goal: Without FI or engine swap, to get the most power out of mods from an eta and make it look nice.

I could use suggestions on what should be changed, but if I were to mod an e30, I think it would go like what I wrote.

Please help.

Thanks.

*I hear pre 88 e30s can't have mtech on without a bit of cutting, this true?

*Is this MtechI or II on these pics?

**What are the rims on 6piston's car? (pic)

not necessarily, i love 6piston's car, but i wouldn't get 6000k like he did.

but he did go euro ellips and retrofit the Xenons.

but i was more concerned bout his bodykit

AndreNY's car is my favorite E30 (now a turbo M52 under the hood is needed)!

I have an addition to that list. seat from the rear seats from IC (I believe these are the ones with the head rest) would come very much in handy rear seat passengers and in rear collitions where the head will snap backwards possibly breaking or dislocating the disks in the neck. Anyway they look great. There was an e30 on here a while back with such rear seats, looked awesome.


I thought depending upon when in '87 the car was made the swap would be screw, screw, drill & drain shock (I think), oh whatever, can't remimber.

That HID pic is nice and Andre one is too. What did the HID driver do to get those lights, because my factor sealed beams are the most directional lights in the world. The produce muck like say 4500 kelvin or so with brights but they light is all over the place. I need info resources, books, links; I NEED INFO...please

If you want a perfect e30, look no further than Randy's E30 and Andre's E30
