    When I first saw her


    Then over the next year or so, suspension was junk had mismatching tires....needed some love.

    Cleaned her best I could I'm not a detail guy.

    Took her to Electrodyne show in DC as I used to live there.

    Wife and I split after 14 years of marriage so she got relegated to pasture under car cover at work, worked on her a bit every now and then. After the last year of sitting under the cover the Macco was looking like ass.

    So I brought her in for a treat since my divorce is final tomorrow. Like red heads they are always nuts.

    She came out great, brother! The best-looking sub-$4k E30 M3 on the planet

    Seriously, it looks awesome! Can't wait to take some pics with it and the Henna.

        Congratulations & my condolences on the divorce being finalized Greg. It's a positive & negative day mixed into one.

        M3 looks nice after the detail! Keep it going dude, it's coming together nicely!

        Spray paint and tire shine doesn't equate to a "restoration!"

          Thanks Guys it was a painful day, I also found out what I had suspected all along was true and hence the split.

            Looks fantastic!! Where did you get it detailed? Mine is desperately in need of one.

            We should meet up. You need to hear the air box

              The car wash on Granby rd. next to Dunkin Donuts. I drive by it daily so the car was looking horrendous and figured I would give paint one last shot before it gets redone this winter.

              Ordered windscreen today for $242 and then a seal, will be installed next week if I'm back intime for LRP.

                  It was painted by Macco about 3 years ago, but she has over a quarter million miles on her.

                      Guess I could fix it, it's easy but the rear badge has to be removed or repositioned as well.

                        I really like the e38 style 5s, I just picked up a set for 160 bucks, I can't wait to toss them on. You car looks great. What suspension is under there?

                          Are you talking about the dunkin donuts at the 5 corners, near that new bank?

                          Do you remember the name of the car wash. Also, how long did it take them do it?

                            The rotary on 33 and granby road. Next to Arby's they are in the back of it.

                            Suspension is Bilstein sports and Eibach Comps. 225-45-16's no spacers but minus rattle springs but that is driving me nuts so they go back on when 5 mm spacers show up.
