Hi, car looks good. You clearly know what you are doing and what you want. If my opinion matters, I would change the indi's for OEM items, rather than the projector style. Keep the tint if you want but the projectors look cheap IMO. also get rid of the M grille badge.

All in all a fantastic car, just a couple of wee ideas from me. Good luck!

Thanks bud, Yeah mate ive took a while to get every little detail thought out and know exactly what parts im after and now ive just went for it, Some parts are going to be hard to get a hole off but will be worth it in the end!

Yeah the indicators are a temp mesure as im awaiting OEM BLACK DEPO's from the US

and i also think the M badge is a bit much so im awaiting my carbon kidney grilles so i will change them all at once :D

But i bought the AP racings.. bad move im going to sell them on and buy what i wanted to start with.

A rushed it and thats what happins when your in a rush for parts when you cant get what you wanted

AP Racings ..... I didnt even know you were looking at those, a thought you were more for the BC Racing or the Eibachs mate, if you can though the Gaz set aint that much more expensive if at all, than the Eibachs .... and at least you can set them to strength etc, wheras the Eibachs are height adjustable only and pre-set dampening etc ....

If i had known better at the time i would have fitted Gaz before Eibach purely for the adjustability ...

Came down to me thinking if a bought those id have money for other parts ETC..

But i should have stuck to my guns and just went for the beter option, Yeah i remeber we talked about the the Gaz setup the other day when i was round.

that may be what i do then sell these on and buy the Gaz set up and the Eibach ARB's..

Was a silly silly move as now i have the hasel off trying to sell them on oh well ill learn next time not to rush in to stuff!

Thanks very much buddy,

Hopefully its going to be somthing that folk will appreciate the work thats went in to it and possibly get mag feature in the end :D

Every car ive built to date has been mag feature'd so hoping to keep that alive with the bmw aswell and possibly do one better if possible for a front cover!

I just about had achived that with my last show car just before i decided to brake it for parts as i went abit far with it i personaly thought trying to make it original and one off and it took all the fun out of it once the car was always in the bodyshop having things changed as folk do copy on the modding scene!

But with the bm i want to keep it as OEM as possible but with some nice subtle mods that make it unique !

Subtle is the way with BMs, I don't agree with folk being overly anal and complaining when a 94 car is fitted with 97 kidneys etc - however I believe that BMW made a good job of designing the cars we drive so little tweaks are the way ahead. Keep us updated Roddy!

I agree, see if you can spot my subtle mod, completely unique to me that emphasises my point.

Hope you spot and like it.
