amazing work! if you painted that car estoril blue, like, all of it , hood and all, it will be just perfect! it would "smooth" the race look of the wide body, and put it more classy, but if you want to go more race look, and agressive, what is important is that you like it! its going to be fantastic anyway, please keep us posted!!

im planning on doing a complete build thread, i was thinking a different color but i dont want to pull the drivetrain out to paint the engine bay just yet i may do a ///m engine swap in the future and i would change color then, blue would be awsome but i would have to swap the interior cause its 2 tone tan black, i dont think the tan would go with the blue. im looking for black interior,
thanks for the compliments, the car was done really bad when i got it, there wasnt a consistant gap on any of the doors or bady parts, but we will take care of that, the original fender flares werent centered over the wheels. so i had to fix that, that was the most complicated. there was more bondo than flare!

tan & black will work with estoril blue, hell that combo will work with almost anything, itīs the punchier interior colors like cinamon or imola red that would work with some lighter tones of blue, sorry for the people with cinamon and estoril.. I seen a few here.. it just doensīt flow.. you need a orient blue or a monaco blue to pull that off..
any way you could post interior pic??

That wide body bimmer above is freaking awesome!!!!!!!!!!

Cell phone pics of my 2000 323i... 19" Privats by Konig & H&R springs, tint, & DVD headrest monitors. That all I've done to it besides maintenance. It's my daily driver for work; 110 miles round trip for work.

Your car looks sweet, can't wait to see it done. IMHO tho, Lose the ///M Grills on the fenders and it will look sick. or keep it but don't put the ///M badge on it.
