        That looks incredible!!

        Ulysses, I've found that E46 covers from the factory fit very well on my iX. Just saying if you find an e46 cover for sale jump on it.

                Thanks guys! My first wheel refinish but it turned out pretty good.

                Lips were whatever came on the car, I suspect not original due to the condition. I didn't replace much, except for bolts (from bfi) and one waffle. The rest was just elbow grease: wetsanded with 600, 1000, 1200, 1500, 2000, 2500, 3000, then polished with wheel polish and finally Never Dull. I have quite a few hours into this set now.

                Here's a before & after of one of the center caps (they were painted silver and clearcoated, I stripped all the paint and polished them)

                        Feels good to start looking for an e30 again. Been about 5 years since I've had one, and can't wait to get my ass back into the driver seat.

                          I have an eta that needs a little bit of bodywork for sale soon. 1986 with 60,000 on a restoration from the turn of millennium. 5 speed with rebuilt motor and minty tan vinyl comfort interior. just a little rough around the edges. was gonna ask 1800 as it sits.

                            I'm gonna be a little picky on this one. No e's, and no 4door whores. Crazy life change and I want my e30 life back!'

                                Been working my ass off. Been working for a utilities company for a bit, driving a total piece of shit Chevy blazer. My wife and I are getting a divorce, should be a clean break. Other then that I'm fantastic.

                                Found a few good examples, but I just saw an ix for sale. Auto and no sport interior, but it's clean.
