    Hey guys. Im new to the forum and thought Id start off proper with a introduction. I have owned several BMW's with most of them being E30's and a few E36's. I am an American who lives in England and love it. Been in the BMW game for a little over 4 years now and it all started with an '84 325 SETA that I swapped a M50 into it but then lost the car due to my shop burning down. So after that I squeezed by and got another BMW whenever I got stationed over here. I bought it stock off pistonheads then lowered it on wheels last summer. This summer I plan on swapping the M50 into it and putting the Mtech kit on.

    Mods:
    Coilovers
    Borbet's Type-A
    Glass Sunroof (not really a mod, but worth bragging rights)
    Some audio stuff to keep the jams alive

    Parts I have collected:
    I built another set of coilovers
    Mtech1 kit
    M50B25 non vanos
    M3 trans
    and random misc. parts.

    I'd keep those wheels on it, the 5 series wheels you have dont look too different from the standard E30 BBS wheels, 5 stud is good though because of the bigger brakes
