Re: (serrano)

not worth it.. i can get a fender for under a hundred bucks... geting it fixed (since there is some paint cracking) would be significantly more

Re: (VwG60Kid)

deeper dish wider wheels! euro bumpers...euro projectors. clean nice new exhaust. maybe cams. first things first, coilovers is what I would go with. is it stick?...short shift kit....all the basics should be lined up man...nobody really needs to tell you what to do though. Heh I don't even have an E30 right now, but I do have wheels for one...just so happens they are the same size for my Mk3...16x9 Kerscher Carmona et15...I can't wait to get an E30

Re: (JPawn1)

well up next is an m30 AFM and adjustable fuel pressure regulator... its getting a manual swap very soon.. already have most of the parts needs a flywheel and clutch....
gonna install FK Coilovers, adjustable cable plates, sway bars, offset busings, e46 RSMs, SMT-6, z4 shifter, and a BB Tri-flow or Stromung exhaust system... i have e36 m3 injectors ready to go in.. just need to find the time... its already been chipped... and gone over for full tuneup and making sure everything works... (ie OBC all lights and switches etc etc) and the stock stereo has been gutted and replaced with alpine goods
the plan is forced induction of some sort down the road.. so no cam or headers for me unless plans change... but seeing as i just got engaged i gotta take it slow.. or i might end up un-engaged quick
as for the bumbers the only difference is the rub strips and lack of side markers in the euro ones... unless your talking an mtech 2 kit...
oh and the wheels... they are staying for now... i like em alot actually.. there are specifically for that car and i think they suit it well... also happen to be fairly rare... and i wanna spend money on more perormance related items first anyways

Re: (VwG60Kid)

hmm I feel so close since I have m20 but not a e30.
turboing the m20 eh, I am planning on the same thing some day(when I have $$$). Have you figured where your going to get a manifold? I have seen a couple on e-bay once or twice not sure how good they are.
oh yeah you have e30 and you dont have a stick shift.. shame on you

car was nearly free (took it of my fiance's dads hands to make room for another car)... so i can't complain about the auto but the swap to manual is very easy (tho sligtly time consuming) on e30s you can do it in an afternoon and it will be done before the end of the year... for a manifold im gonna go with a proturbo.fi one
