Understeer, sh$t, snap oversteer, 360 spin, barrier, bang, catch, pull over. Well thats a somewhat shortened version of what happened to the coupe last night and has resulted in damage to everything front end wise other than the front wings somehow!
So other than the wings, i basically need everything on the front end, panel wise need to try and find them in montreal blue if i can. Can people remind me whats compatible between coupe and saloon/touring please?
I have also bent the ends of the chassis rails. bugger. The first and only quote i have got so far is 280 quid plus materials to sort the rails. Considering cutting out the inner wing ends of a breaker e36 down a scrappy and giving them to a bodyshop to butcher and splice in instead of the 120 quid chassis end rails bmw supply. I think only one chassis rail needs a new end, the other one can be jigged.
If it wasnt such a clean and tidy rust free car with so very few issues then it would definitely be getting binned but i think ill be worse off if i throw it away and get something else. Lucky I hadnt sold my old coupe yet, shes now been put back into service for a while.
Pictures to follow.
