I've finally returned to the world of BMW after a 7 year break selling Honda and Mazda and having a company car! - I sold my E36 M3 Evo coupe techno-violet/silver leather when i started that job as i was getting a company car and couldn't afford to run both or have the room to store another car! - I can honestly say i cried like a baby watching her drive away!
Before that i had an E30 325i Sport coupe in diamond black and grey Recaro leather (a genuine mtech car) - I really wish i had NEVER sold her... definitely a classic car and still looks Uber cool today.
Now I've left the car trade to concentrate on chasing a dream career in VFX for film and games so currently I'm a mature student studying from home and seeking part time work while I work on my first show-reel for VFX. My dad finally got a newer car and asked if i would like to have his old 525i SE (1993) to keep it in the family! - he didn't really have to ask....!!
I'm now the proud owner of a diamond black/grey cloth 525i with the M50 engine/manual trans which has been lovingly maintained by my father (who is a self employed car mechanic with his own garage!). It has only done 99500miles and my father was only the second owner back in 1998. This car is completely stock and sounds awesome.
When money and the new job permits i have plenty in store for this machine -
Wide grille/bonnet conversion (like facelift - '95 cars) colour coded
19" staggered - deep dish wheels
lowered and stiffer springs
AC Schnitzer body kit all round
clear indicator kit all round
AC Schnitzer exhaust trim
AC Schnitzer or MTech II steering wheel
Recaro Sport leather interior and door cards - May go Champagne or even brown leather!
AC Schnitzer or MTech gear knob
Possibly a subtle lip spoiler for the boot. (i mean really subtle!)
full car respray to touch up current blemishes
need to sort the baggy headlining at the rear!
Any advice about locating these parts and installation or similar build info would be really helpful!
Look forward to meeting y'all!
