That's a really fab looking E36 mate. That was the 1.9 16v wasn't it? The interior looks really mint, and the whole car looks like it's done 20k instead of 180!!

Brilliant

Yes 1.9 16valve, M44B19. Really bulletproof engine.... I actually just replaced the original rad in it last week!!

Few bits need doing to really make it mint, My Nosecone has a dent and doesn't sit 100% so that needs replacing, few tiny parking dings and the window rubbers are showing their age.

Thanks guys!

Here's a few interior pics, Loads of small little touches....

The cargo net is from a Z3, Rear Headrests are modified E46 ones (I couldnt find Alcantara E36 ones) Rear Roller Blind, Alcantara Armrest, Non Smoker Inserts, Illumknated Gearknob, Original floor mats and of course those M3 Vaders.







Doorcard speaker grills need changing but I have a pair, Want a factory CD player also but their £££. Might possibly fit an Alcantara steering wheel too.

Also note the Nextbase dashcam, Hardwired into the front fog lights switch. (Piggy back fuse and have fogs removed so ideal)

Picked up some Motorsports. (Genuine & Staggered)

Had bald tyres so I fitted the correct 225/45 and 245/40 Tyres. (I had 215/45 and 235/40 On BBS)





And it's now SORN until April 1st.

Few little bits to be done over winter, M3 Brakes ready to go on, Coil on Plug conversion and hopefully a headlight washer retrofit kit.

Got some Red Seatbelts made up (All 4, And center lap belt removed) Professionaly done with certified webbing using my original mechanisms and machine stitched.




Really liking the Motorsports but will be dropping down a tyre size as it's much nicer to drive on 215/45 & 235/40.

Pics taken Christmas Day.






I'm also after a decent GT2 spoiler, Must be 4 piece and preferably on a boot door as I'll be keeping the current one spoilerless!
