Fitted front splitter today (thanks ken for ripping me off:D ) and did a quick detail on the front wings and bonnet (used clay block, chemical guy all in one polish and 2 layers of petes 53 wax...)
I found the clayblock excellent as there were tonnes of contaminents on the paint work! car is def giving off a better shine...edit must buy a decent camera and find a better place to take pics:)
Other mods include replica m3 mirrors (big thanks to ken and dave for them) and german style plates with surrounds..oh and clubsport gearknob which is an excellent mod!

Thanks lads! Still cant get the majority of the swirl marks out which is really annoying...probably needs to be machine polished..next week ill have to detail the rest of the car, fit the m3 diffuser, change diff oil and replace thermostat:rolleyes: think ill be holding on to the wheels they look so well when the car is clean

Nice to see yet another E36 being given some TLC. Looks great. Nice job on the wings/bonnet. I really need to get some time to do that soon too.
Who are you kidding your car is mint unless you've been too busy with other projects lately!

Ordered myself a kit from cleancar too so I'll be busy de-tarring mine the weekend and giving it the full valet treatment hopefully before she goes back on the road ;) .

@318 is - car looking well indeed. Front nicely finished I'd be tempted to go with black grilles too though.

Debateable on the wheels. You'll have an M3 replica soon and the wheels will let it down a bit then being a bit small imo.

Sure that can be done at a later date!

Angel Eyes

Bought a set of angel eyes off Barry (bb1) before Christmas and left the car in with the lads at AC Cars yesterday. So i picked her up today and i must say its a huge improvement over the standard lights. Big thanks to Barry and Richie:D And thanks for washing the car too!:) Next on the agenda is to pick up my new steering wheel on Monday and fit it and try and fix the heater valve thats knackered....

Steering Wheel

Well i finally received my steering wheel today. It came from a M3 evo up north so i fitted it today as well. Nice improvement from my 3 spoke "sports" wheel. For some reason the car seems more responsive when i connected the battery back-any reason why this is? is it possible that i was driving in granny mode beforehand? :eek: anyway heres a few pics.
