Teaser: Projekt e30 Vert

I know everyone loves teasers and I think it progressed alot for a thread.

Brief background:
'88 325i, Auto, M20 w/ 110K miles, CirrusBlau exterior, Indigo interior

My father in law purchased the car in NJ for the summer about 10 years ago. He only drove it that summer and left it in storage for 6 years (He cranked the car every month). He later found out that I have a fascination for e30s and he gave to me for Christmas. Since I'm living in Costa Rica I shipped it down here and had the car

Here are some pics







Then I purchased a set of BBS RS (Specs: 5x120 Front:16x8 et11, Rear: 16x9 et24) Purchased from TopazKD


Had them refinished


If you were wondering, the offset is too low and 5Lug, so I purchased a set of adapters from Ethan at 8380 Laboratories great service, quality, I highly recommend.

Some pics at the body shop.

Stretched fender for the BBS




Mtech2 front and rear bumer w/ valance installed(purchased from the UK)








The car is getting painted right now. I will update as it progress.

Great project. Love it. I had one but it rotted away etc and in the end had to junk it. I would love to find another one one day and do some work to it

I'm a little disappointed that I've bought M-tech2 instead of M-tech1. Why?





that's why (sorry for the high-res pics, have just found them)

You just shouldn't mix mtech2 with pre-facelifted E30. Mtech 1 has it's classy look. Mtech 2 looks a bit like aftermarket kit...
