                All in all that looks to be in nice shape! Considering it's a 26 year old car.

                If you ask me that 1,8i is the best engine E30 ever had. What's there not to like!

                      Looks like you're doing it right!
                      Sub'd to see this in Mineralblau. It's a color I'm thinking about using and there aren't any in the the U.S. as far I know.

                        Mineralblau is past. :) I like Neonblue or something like this color. Car had 3 paints, so it doesn't matter what color will be next. :) There was a Gazellenbeige, which was the original paint, then Zinno and now car have Hennarot. Nice goulash. :D

                        By the way, I never seen E30 in Mineralblau, so I think it's a very rare color. But it's from late model and I don't want to rist the match with chrome bumpers.

                          Great job on the restore! Love seeing people take proper care of their cars. I miss the m10 of my first e30 sometimes because it was SO efficient. Also incredibly easy to get in and work on since there was so much room in the engine bay. Keep up the good work and let us know what other plans you have for the car.
