    The newest addtion to the collection

    I do have the stock rear pads installed as well. I think I'm going to order thicker rear spring pads to raise it up a bit, such as the ones here:
    http://store.bimmerworld.com/mobile/...5mm-p1522.aspx

    I'll just have to measure and see how much I want to raise it.

      I also actually thought of adding black door pullers/ pockets. Maybe I should test my black set from my coupe. Also, yes I do have the H&R sports in the back. Could it just look a ton lower because the rear fender arch?
      Lol yes wouldn't. except the motor. I'm not a fan of m20's haha

        If I could have a second e30, it would be an alpine mt2 vert so I'm jealous. Well done

            Looks great with the euroweaves. Did you use coupe/sedan H&Rs, or the vert/iX-specific springs? Looking forward to the black door pulls test fit. If it looks good, then maybe add black rear speaker covers to complete the look.

              Thanks! I did use coupe springs, I figured I'd take a chance as I got them for a great price. I suppose that would lower the car a quarter inch or so huh! Actually, I decided to just leave the white pullers/ pockets in. I was considering black the first couple days of the seat swap but it somewhat grew on me.

                  The newest addtion to the collection

                  ^Thank you!

                  So this weekend me and a buddy of mine drove all the way down to LA, just to buy e30 parts! His car was the first Mtech II car I ever saw, sadly he flipped it the first week of getting it running. He's in the process of saving it though. The passenger side is actually pretty flawless, with all the OEM Mtech pieces still intact, and he still has all the driver side pieces. We picked up some pieces for his car, specifically the front bumper and valance, and I ended up getting some riser pads for the rear springs, along with a strut bar from Ireland Engineering.

                  Here's a pic with my car in front of his

                      Careless driving. He told me there was a 90° turn that he figured the car could handle at the speed he was going and by the time he could correct what happened, he hit a curb which sent his car to roll over a full 360 and land on the side you see in the picture.

                      A police car actually hit the car back over to land on its wheels and push it out of the road. Surprisingly he walked away with no injures period. It's a shame because the car was a beauty, at least he's trying to bring it back to life but we'll see what happens.

                        Gave it a wash today. It's amazing how well the paint cleaned up! My dad also found time to start rebuilding my steering rack that will be going in here. Also, I bought a set of Ground Control touring camber plates to put in place of the K-Mac's. I really have no use for caster adjustment so those will be for sale in the next week or two.

                              Ha! Thanks guys. I've decided this will be the car I'm bringing to Bimmerfest this year.

                              ThatOneEuroE30- I don't recall seeing any pics of your dads Mtech in your build thread??



                              I also found this pic that truly shows the paint condition of how the car was purchased!
