    They look great. Wasn't sure if they were Mille Milka or RD wheels. Love the concave on them. They definitely fit the era well.

    If it were mine, I wouldn't change a thing (including the wheels) and I'm a compulsive tinkerer.
    Great job on that car
    Missed this one before. Thanks! I do like the wheels a lot. Fortunately, something rare and three piece will be replacing them soon enough...

    P.S. Stole one of your pictures and is now being used as my laptop's background, hope you don't mind.
    Now, there's a first. Thank you!

    Beautiful car.

    Without door locks, how do you keep from getting carjacked and/or raped?
    Used all E30 M3 parts except the aluminum control arms. While I would have liked them, $300 each just wasn't in the cards, considering that I already had a brand new set of Lemforder units. I didn't plan on doing an E30 M3 set up due to cost reasons, but then it fell in my lap for a price I couldn't pass up.

    It definitely does lock and unlock from the trunk. If you had ever met me, there wouldn't be a question about me getting raped...

    Don't be angry. You too could have this if you try. This little project took me almost 6 years to get this point. I chose to forgo just about all of life's little luxuries for many years so I could save to build this car. While my friends were all out getting an education or taking epic European trips, I was over here building something cool. I don't regret it at all. I even sold my M3 (for another reason I'm still very bitter about) and used the some of the proceeds from that sale to get this thing road worthy.

    This is absolutely true. To be perfectly honest, I doubt many people (if anyone) would appreciate the car as much as I do.

    I can't bring myself to let go of it, so it's gonna be around for a long time.
