Regarding the rear window... mine is not tinted, just the sides, but mine has black roof and dark blue interior so hard to tell.

I kinda like the double line thing... it's different. I would have thought that you did this on purpose. Looks really good. Just my opinion.

You're right on both counts. I've got staggered style 5's on the E34 and they look awesome - $$$ though. My E34 also sits lower than the E30 as it has sport springs w/no pads.

I'm going to remove the spring pads on the vert and see how it sits, and if it's still not low enough I'll move to H&R race instead of the sports I have now (although they've only got 5,000kms on them).

I've found it very hard to find 4x100 17" wheels in any styles I like, let alone a deep dish BBS. Might have to do a 5 bolt conversion to achieve what I want.

I have a 318ti subframe waiting! Perfect for a 5 bolt swap!

Mike, the black mirrors is something I am considering. But not the full mirror, just the portion that attaches to the car, not the hinged portion. Could be considered "floating mirrors".... looks great. Will post a pic if I can find one

That's what my mirrors are like (see sig), I'd do it for sure, maybe smoke your tailights just a bit, to take the "edge" of the red & orange? I could spend all day starring at your cab

Hey Rod. Yes I think I'll still need it. I'm taking the vert in for certification tomorrow. I didn't mention anything about the tank. I'm hoping it will slip by as there is no sign of leakage or smell of gas. It smells only when you put in too much...lol........Looking forward to seeing you guys again. I'll let you know how I make out with the vert and if I'll need anymore parts. Thanks Rod, the next beer is on me........Bill
