    Dat e30 doeee

    Figured it was about time to post some pics of bae.

    1989 325i coupe
    207k on da clock
    Beat ass silver
    5 speed swap

    Bought the car around September of 2014 after about a year of searching.....didn't have to go far and drove it home about a hour later.

    More pics on insta @martino_motosport

    How she sat.




    Car had minimal rust and from my understanding was from one of the Carolinas. Needed some minor tweaks here and there but seemed to be a great car. Started making a parts list and my money started to fly away.

    Starting from the front:
    Yellow fogs
    HIDs all around
    New roundels
    Renown wheel
    BFI knob
    Lots of radio and dash work
    Motorsport carpets
    Euro trim
    IS lip and skirts
    Keyless
    And tons of small OEM stuff
    Yada yada yada....


    Radio was lots of fun, gotta love a good hack job! Big shoutout to member: Zinoberrot and his thread on the RMT.






    Suspensions was next with some coils and a front end refresh. Obviously had to get rid of the style 5's...shittzz played out. Paint was next decided to lay it and not spray it. Was hoping for something close to calypso but it turned out to be a little lighter...oh well.













    Big things to come...

              I was very carful and probably only have around 5% waste...so I think in total I used 45 yards, which equals around $500.

                Thanks man! Paint was shot though....didn't really have a choice. Color is a little darker in person, haven't been able to capture it in photos yet.

                    You get the hang of it, plus I had a good coworker who was experienced. Cars are a lot easier then other things I've attempted to wrap lol.

                        Custom mute button for the radar. I also installed 2 switches to power radar and some extra gauges...wanted to be able to turn them off when ever.





                        Still have to move some stuff around to get the buttons sitting even with each other.

                            It's the RMT200. It's not an option to change the color but a member on here has figured out how to do it and will do it for a fee. He will be doing mine soon...along with a few other things.

                            Unit is getting harder and harder to find though....I bought mine out of Russia.
