    here's a before and after granted the before pics are pretty crappy compared to the after but still, you get the idea:

    After:






    now, it's time to nurse her back to health.

    PS: unfortunately you can't see it but the black E28 in the back is my friend Bill's M5.

    Awesome work man, good to see her out in the open.
    Don't like that Yellow Fuzzy thing you've added to the front though.
    Is that some new light for the licence plate ?

        it needs brakes... BADLY. stops like a 18-wheeler in the rain. (suggestions?) then it's the ignition coils and plugs; damn animals from the PO chewed up 2 of them (not that bad but definately an eyesore, again, suggestions?).




        it's hard to see with camera phones but the color is actually pearl yellow. i think i'm going to keep it like that; i like the contrast it brings with the black trim and tint.

          Actually that one mod has made a world of difference. I like it....Should change the wheels though.

              Agree... you took a giant leap forward with the grills. I see wheels are on your list so that will also transform the car. A minor detail is that the M3 grill badge is one slat too high on the front grill, 5 minutes to fix as it is just held on with bendable tabs.

              Good luck with the fix ups. That is really one of the fun parts of owning these cars. Its those little details that really add up.

                    Rims gotta go but the grills made such a difference. I really like the yellow.

                          Major improvement. Some black bumper tape would be a great $20 improvement too!
