    Projekt Vert

    I know everyone loves teasers and I think it progressed alot for a thread.

    Brief background:
    '88 325i, Auto, M20 w/ 110K miles, CirrusBlau exterior, Indigo interior

    My father in law purchased the car in NJ for the summer about 10 years ago. He only drove it that summer and left it in storage for 6 years (He cranked the car every month). He later found out that I have a fascination for e30s and he gave to me for Christmas. Since I'm living in Costa Rica I shipped it down here and had the car

    Here are some pics







    Then I purchased a set of BBS RS (Specs: 5x120 Front:16x8 et11, Rear: 16x9 et24)


    Had them refinished


    If you were wondering, the offset is too low and 5Lug, so I purchased a set of adapters from Ethan at 8380 Laboratories great service, quality, I highly recommend.

    Some pics at the body shop.

    Stretched fender for the BBS




    Mtech2 front and rear bumer w/ valance installed(purchased from the UK)








    The car is getting painted right now. I will update as it progress.

    Forgot to mention, its currently sitting on Bilstein Sport and ST Lowering Springs

        Not trying to be a dick but why didn't you pull the hood and trunk badges off, they just pull off, way easier and better than masking them off

          Same very thought I had.

          I love where this is going though: MTII, new paint, splits <3

            lol!!!I asked the same exact question to the body guy when I was there. His assistant covered it. I dont care if badges get painted on. I have a second set at home.

                I would make them remove the badges to be sure everywhere gets painted.

                  thats the right way to do it^ same with the windshield, rubbers, washers and door handles. for e30s their less time to remove than to tape. more access for sanding and better application of coats/clear, and protection from overspray. good luck with the projekt tho, we all live n learn ;)
