    Hi All.

    New to this site although already a member of a few others;;
    The important stuff


    I dont realy plan to do much to this one as it already has the wheels which i like and its lowered.

    When i started looking i wanted to get a standard 328I sport and just have a tidy car.

    Thats still pretty much the idea i will do more but i want to stay close to the original design, no more tacked on bodykits and roof spoilers etc etc,

    I will be trying to rectify the various niggles over time hopefully one day it will all be sorted but its going to take a while as i do have limited funds
    ( even less now i have 2.8 litres to play with )

    Enough of that on with the pics..








    I only bought the car last week so im still finding my feet but i did make a start on sorting those niggles :


    They were too far gone for a bit of polishing..



    I have sanded through various grades of paper up to 1200, from there i bought a polishing kit from Halfrauds which came with 3 different wheels and compounds..

    Its been hard work but heres the first one done,,





    So i think its worth it but the Mrs thinks im mad especially as iv sat in the rain doing it....
    Iv only managed one so far but im motivated now ones done..
    Your thoughts...
