    Maybe its the ricer in me but that thing would look good if it was black from the molding down.

    Nice E36. I'm glad that you haven't painted the trim body-colored, looks better black. It looks dropped a bit, what's the suspension setup?

    Thanks guys. Appreciate the good press.

    I don't have any interior pics, but I will honestly say that the Dove Grey interior has seen better days. I replaced the front seats about 20,000 miles ago so they are still looking decent, but the driver's door arm rest is a travesty. Right now the car is at a friend's BMW performance shop getting some work done, but when I get it back I am going to have the interior redyed.

    Thanks. I just went back to black moldings. Last year I found a dude selling an entire set of moldings painted my color for $120 shipped, and for that price I figured I couldn't lose. I ran the colored moldings for a season, but swapped them back out for this one.

    People either loved it or vehemently hated it. It grew on me, but I was glad to go back to the stock molding look. In the end it just didn't sit right. :sad2:

    Picture for reference - Painted moldings, when my wheels were stock HRE silver:

    Actually maybe with 20 25% tint on it black of course it could make it look even better.

    Nice car I wish I had that.
