    Rich's e36 328 project,clean and simple!!

    Hi

    Iv'e had my e36 for less than a week and already iv'e already started the modifications.The car looks great in standard form but i just can't leave thing standard

    So it started a few weeks ago when i decided that my e46 320d just wasn't needed anymore as i recently had a transfer at work which meant that i'm now based closer to home so i can now afford something more fuelly.So last week it was sold...



    I was a little bit gutted to see it go to be honest but within a couple of hours i purchased this rather tidy e36...







    And after a good polish i was really happy with the results..



    I currently part own another e36 that was saved from the scrap heap to use on track and quite like the car but its just so rusty and rough,so its nice to now be able to go ahead with some of the plans i had for that car with this one.

    pics of my other 328..







    First thing to do was fit some side repeaters as they had been stolen(sorry,no pics at the moment)

    So plans are

    New winscreen(cracked)
    lowered 40mm...ish
    gloss black kidney grills
    18inch bbs lm's f:18x8 r:18x9
    m3 splitter
    smoked indicator lenses
    refit front fogs
    decent stereo and speaker fitment
    small boot lip
    and a good general tidy up

    So,those are my plans so far and i'll update as parts are purchased and fitted.

    thanks,rich

    I actually think the M-Sport E36 looks less dated than the pre-facelift E46's!

    Nice car mate, I really liked my 2.8i engine

    Iv'e been pretty busy this week!!

    I wasn't too keen on the chrome front grills on the e36,so out came the vinyl!20 mins of vinyl wrapping later and the grills were black..

    mid way through..



    I also purchased a set of headlights with the angel eyes installed....only to find they didn't work!!!so although they are pictured they will be taken off to be returned to the seller.

    I looked all over ebay for some smoked rear lights,but the prices were more than i'm willing to pay.So out with some more vinyl wrap!This time,transparent smoked vinyl..





    Also purchased...
    #coilovers
    #m3 lip
    #fog blanks
    #side repeaters,as mine were stolen!!!
    #bbs lm reps front 18x8 rear 18x9



    Which all looks like this when fitted...







    Really happy with the way it's looking now,but im still not finished so ill update as i fit more parts,thanks for looking!!

    Thanks simon,yeah it's come up really nice with a good polish!

    It's cosmos black if i remember correctly,though the colour tends to differ in pictures under certain light levels.
