Welcome to the forum! 30th car and you're only 26? You must be an expert in buying and selling by now.

I appreciate the warm welcome! I plan or ordering a guibo bearing and center support along with depot smoked corners then paint my headlight inlays black...perhaps angel eye kit. I also have a 76 Trans am that I am building right now, pro touring style.

Welcome. After you get all caught up w/ maintenance you should try to get rid of those black 68's and get some different wheels. But still, it looks good

Any suggestions on wheels? The black painted wheels came on it but yes the do gotta go. 19" Silver or Gunmetal zcp wheels might be better? I've had 19s before on my sc300 and low pro tires with 19s are very scary on Indiana roads. But 19s look perfect on e46s..... my life would be so much better with nice roads to drive on.

No, but you will have to get a second job to pay for the repairs.
