    Have you got a pic of the Cab?

    Depends what your going for ... stock look. Subtle mods, fully modified?

    haha no worries

    yeah alloys need to be changed, as its a 15 year old car, they've got a lot of damage on em, but i might recon em but see if i can get em painted black instead

    like you say wanna tidy it all up with things like that, but also i'm gonna have to replace the interior - have to keep my eyes peeled for e36 interiors, as its kinda mustard yellow :p

    Not sure about those dash kits... i used to work at halfords years ago and they sold them.. imho they can look a bit cheap especially when the corners start rising up and you get bubbles in them....just my opinion

    Good time to get the cab with the weather starting to get better.. happy motoring!

    1st Mod = Lights (M3 rears, clear indicators and side repeaters)
    2nd Lowering
    3rd wheels
    4th window tints?
    5th performance exhaust?

    Remember when going for a dark colour on the wheel it will make them appear smaller than the same wheel in silver

    Look forward to seeing some pics when you take delivery

    Yah,would tend to agree...can look rather tacky especially if they havent been fitted right, it was the first thing i did to remove the cheap tacky chrome trim from mine.
    having said that there are some decent quality kits out there-and its all down to your personal tastes-have fun modding your cabby,they are awesome fun in the summer!!
    I has the skillz to pay the billz innit.
