^ the E36 used to be a car that I hated, but for some strange reason it's aged really well. I kinda want one now

Firstly, cool starry bra.
Secondly, get some sleep Wes. You aren't making dollars or sense.

Admittedly I had a bad experience but the way BMW parts deteriorated in about 15 years on a car with no rust was shocking. I don’t know I’d ever buy a BMW again.

I can see why the car was so popular in 1998. But lord, what a pile of shit it was after normal use for 100K miles.

Forgot to load second video. This track is amazing, and had 4 people walk up to ask what was done to the exhaust! This session was dryer, was doing 120-125 on the banks and 140-145 on straights.


Also finally loaded bunch of carbon.

Sexy as fuck...
I usually don't like the colors added but it looks classy where it is on the bumper.

The full decal kit from BMW is a bit tacky, the sides of the car mostly. My detailer custom made the front and rear, and I can rip off anytime if I get bored of them so I let hi do it!

I did a couple tweaks to the 2002 also, Ill update when I wrap that one up, got some exhaust and wheels for it!

Looks amazing.
Like the decals on the front bumper, less so on the rear.

Thanks! Haven’t got tired of either so they are staying a while longer!

Also got my 2002 back from the shop where it was getting a basic tune up/ maintenance service. Have parts rolling in for it and some still being shipped . Got new tail lights for it. Have an exhaust sitting in garage for it and a new set of wheels coming soon.
