    The wheels arent standard and i dont think the steering wheel is either, the indicators are after market and the door strips look like m ones from a distance but no m3 style front bumper, m3 wing mirrors and possibly the side repeaters? also would of thought you would have a cream armrest, could be wrong on all these as im still fairly new to bimmers compared to some of the guys here. Welcome btw
    Izit cos i compact?

    Welcome Ben

    Car looks in pretty good nick. The wheels are called Sunflowers and were on E36 M3's, saloons in particular I think.
    The steering wheel is an Mtech one and may have been factory-fitted as an option, my old E36 coupe had one.

    ahh nice to know i've got a few nice bits on it, it has alloy M pedals as well.

    There are a few bits that need attention, most of all the rear arch and boot rust, also there is a patch on the bonnet where the lacquer has lifted.
    This is going to be a working progress, im hoping to have it how i want b the end of the year.

    Here are a few mods i'd like to have done by the end of the year:

    -M50 inlet manifold
    -Induction kit with cold air feed and heat shield
    -Coilovers + lowered
    -Polybushed
    -Backbox or Catback system
    -M3/m-tech bumpers + diffusers
    -M3 rear lights
    -New head unit

    Would appreciate any input on any other good mods or big no no's.

    Oh and going from a standard 1.2 fiesta to a 2.5 straight 6......i never want to go back, EVER!
