    Holy good God, shifter. That thing is LONG.

    You definitely have/had two amazing E30s. The interiors are in really good condition, and I love that wheel fitment. I have the same pedals as your 325 :cool:

    You parting your old one out?

    Well congrats on your new car. I love BMW I6s, they're so smooth :) I like the tail lights but I'm not a fan of that eyelid lip thing on the front.

    << I have an M50B25 E36.

    Both cars looked amzing! The interior on the old one is bowdown! :whoa:

    But.. on a side note.. having your parted car on your lawn is pretty fucking ghetto :rofl:

    yeah all red tails are sweet, ESPECIALLY when you do it with a rattle can of tamia paint :)
    as for the eyelids, ive already removed them and swapped them for a nice new set of euro grills
    the old interior was the shit, and i kept it, im re doing it in the summer new leather/cloth

    Not really a full teaser, but it looks pretty nice, and its the nicest wheels Liam will ever see on his car
    DZ exklusiv DZ1
    16x9 et30 in the rear... will need a 5 mm shim to get the tire around the suspension, but will have a 245/35/16 T1R on it
    and then fronts (not pictured)
    16x7.5 et15 with 215/40/16 T1R rubber

    good lawd, tires are expensive, i forgot, my issue is only toyo makes the sizes i want, and the dont come cheap, im looking at 1000 more to mount and balance, fuck, 2700 roughly for 4 wheels and tires, i need another job
    on a plus note, spring is just around the corner and so a fresh coat of paint will be in order in the next couple months,
    Stay tuned :)
