While I think Estoril Blue is best suited to the E31 and E36 chassis, looks spectacular Aaron especially with the lemon interior. I wouldn't let people sit in the back seats!

Forgive the poor photo quality...

Still needs to go a little lower in the rear, and I want to spray the window trim in gloss black.

thanks mate. i rarely have people in the back. but ill never get a light colour interior again. too much effort to keep it clean, jeans stain it (comes off easily). even being really careful, it still gets grubby

^ looks hot!! Love what you've done with it. Two questions; is the license plate mounted to the tow point? And how do you get the yellow high beam? I love the look of the yellow.

My Ride: Rules1 & 2: S T F U!
From the first cruise:



EE LED tails had to come first!



Smoked front corners




I do enjoy getting "blown"




Removed the grille from the front air dam



Some new 4 pot front brakes + vinyl wrapped window trim (bloody YGOAMG in the way):



OEM MTech2 + BMW Performance splitters + OEM bi-xenons
Colour match grilles and 4300k AEs



Remus getting in touch with nature




New wheels + (mirrors that you can't see in this pic):




New wheels (again).. had to remove 4 pot brakes as Hamann HM2s will not work with a BBK, BMW Performace rotors:
(Rusty - I don't drive much anymore )




At the Albert Park meet:




Were it spends 99% of the time
The Yaris next to it gets good mileage




Other stuff:

BMW Performance strut brace
FK coilovers
TMS (aka H&R) F&R sway bars
Goodrigde braided clutch and brake lines
Custom offset bushes to fit M3 FCABs (for more castor)
TMS RTA limiters
TMS brass piston guides for the OEM brake calipers
TMS RSM + reinforcement
TMS subframe reinforcement kit
BMW front shock tower reinforcement plates
UUC light weight flywheel and M5 clutch conversion
Z3M shifter + M (clubsport) weighted knob
3.64fd finned diff

M3 tri stitch steering wheel
Rear electric sun blind
OEM LED tail lights (changed out the EEs)
BMW homelink fitted (UK version)

Plenty of other stuff that's NOT worth mentioning
