    Hi

    Thanks so far for everyone who has already given me advice it's been a great help already.

    Today I started to have a real look at the state of my 328i Touring and as you will see from the photos it needs some love!

    The bonnet will come up nicely however there are several very deep stone chips that no amount of polish etc will remove, can I fix these or do I need a professional?

    On the boot I've got 2 patches of rush, I've seen rust removal kits and BMW black colour pens/paint as Halfords will this work?

    The 15" Classic Alpinas are slightly stained what is the best product for cleaning these?

    I know I need a new splitter, fog light and also some new wing mirror covers and number plates, anyone got any other suggestions to turn this beast back to a looker!?!

    The piantwork issue look like they will need respraying mate and the wheels look pretty clean in the picture, have you tried polishing them mate, as if the staining is in the paint then the only way is to refurb.

    well you could always put an M3 body kit on it, ie front bumper, side skirts and rear bumper, bolt on job mate

    What would be a good wheel polish to try on these Alpinas?

    Have you typed "E36 Touring" into Google images? Plenty of inspiration there.

    I need that splitter and mine lowered!

    I've ordered replacement clear indicators and side indicator lights!

    Also on the hunt for a leather interior but not many touring ones come up!
