              Looks great! It just needs a fairing for the roof rack.

                        thanks bro.....the car suffers from the infamous paint 'checking'....it looks like a DeLorean (which I'm beginning to notice is a prob w/ other metallic E30s from this yr)......so the car needs paint.

                        Other than that the car is very solid w/ no rust...none under the battery valence or license plate lights.....which is hard to find on iX's...

                            That SONAX don't look too healthy, but where you pick that up, I'm in dire need for something other than a toothbrush and drain-o

                              i got it from www.detailersdomain.com Stuff isn't cheap...but worth every penny in my book. There was caked on stuff there that wouldn't come off w/ scrubbing....and this cleaned it right off. Hasn't hurt the finish off any car I've used it on.
