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!

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.
The eyes look well cosmos.. I need to get a set sorted for mine.
Neil, look out for 1 replacement Gen 5 CCFL, the rest are perfect :cool:
Yeah i think i like the oem look better.. Sorry Ciaran!!!!!
I think so too...those were already on the car, couldn't justify €180 on them so bought window seals instead :cool:
Hmmmm im unsure now as to dropping her...when the car is parked on level ground it doesnt look as bad...the front needs a drop but i can see rubbing issues if the rear is lowered...i had 3 people in the back last night and it was rubbing! So suggestions please :) i was thinking of putting a eibach pro kit on her but this will definately cause rubbing no?
Unfortunately it will. The rear arches on my E36 were rolled to clear the wider rears. Never once had an issue with clearance then, full tank, full boot (suitcases) and 4 up. :cool:
Is yours lowered Phil? Lovely more money to spend on her:(
Be worth it, providing your keeping it for the next while.
Looking great Shane, a credit to you...must be the envy of the college carpark? :cool:
Never EVER grow old of the E36 shape. I will definitely have another in years to come.
Not even going to post up how dirty my car is, I'll let DonB verify and back that up :D

Looking good shane :cool:
