    I get it if youre tryna flip it, but your alpine was clean
    This is a whole lot cleaner. It's pretty much a bunch of cosmetic stuff added by a Russian guy somewhere along the line. I'm assuming I'll buy some cheap bottlecaps for the time being, sell off the fake wheels to a honda, and throw the vulva in the trash. I have a renown steering wheel sitting at my house, an mtech 1 spoiler, your moonroof, and a few other things. This car also came with quite a few random goodies.

    Oh, and I wanted a red car.

    The alpine went to a really good home as well. It doesn't bother me to spend a bit more money to save a car that would have probably ended up battered and abused in the stance scene.

This car has esm wheels, aluminum cluster rings, a chrome steering wheel, red sparco seats, an is spoiler applied with double sided tape, and a vulva lip to top it off. At least the paint is gorgeous. Sorry for pics I'm technology retarded.
        Nice! Great starting point with the easy fixes. You'll get it there.

          Yeah, looks pretty clean. Although, when you said riced out I was hoping for some a little more epic :)

            If only this was a wagon, I'd be all over this.

              ..double check that the vin numbers on the front match the ones on the rear.

              I have some bottle caps I can let go for cheap but I am all the way down in Portland. Are you rolling through here any time soon?

                agree - E34's really look good as Tourings. I just traded the one I had off for another E30 only because I have a cubic butt load of E30/M20 parts but nothing really for an E34/M50..

                I will also say, after driving it around a bit, the 24v bug is starting to itch me.

                    The price I got was for a full e30 swap no trans - 2500+ shipping for everything that was required to get the engine in the car and running.

                      Always anticipate it costing more. I've done the swap, it adds up. What engine are you swapping? obd1,2? Transmission costs can add up depending on if you have to purchase parts to use it, example would be a zf320

                              Is one gonna be a parts car?

                              You should definitely do a bronzit 'photo shoot' and calendar just for Austin.

                                For sure, I'm guessing about double that depending on how much labor I'm going to have to buy out.
