Hey Varun, Congrats on an excellent job done. That is really one sweet ride. Especially love the 'wet' look paint, the seats and the alloys - not to forget the colour cordinated kidney grill. Overall 2 thumbs up!!!

Wow!! the restoration is commendable.

Car now looks so much more awesome! I'd say you rescued the car for good.

How is the paint holding up ?? Just asking coz my car paint was brilliant as well, but started to wear off & cracked subsequently.

So just keep your eyes peeled..




Cheers

100% eyes closed the best way to make yours stand out. Completely changes the look of the car. You need not get the rear bumper of the M3, there is a diffuser kit that was made for our E36's that's a direct fit on our stock rear bumper. Im adding a set of lowering springs as well, you could look into that as well.

Nice looking car Varun! A car well done by Autopsyche - as always.

I'm sure you already know this, but unlike popular belief, modding or "restoring" projects such as these KILL the resale value of the car. Many people will come and praise your car, and tell you that they'd buy it the minute you decide to sell - but it's hard to find someone to put their money where their mouth is.

Your best bet would be to get Autopsyche find you a buyer. That ways you get the best price and he gets to do your next car. It's a win-win situation for all (except the random buyer, but who cares about him anyways!).

Oops, did I just reveal the business model! :O

Nice Car.. I own a E39 530i Sport myself and spare parts can be pretty expensive.
for spare parts.. if you know someone staying here in US you can check out bavauto.com - ( i am not advertising for anyone here. Just trying to help out a fellow bhpiian)
This company deals in spare parts and engine components - stock and modified for all BMW and Mini Cooper built to date.
Shipping is in US only till now.. you can probably call them or visit their website for more details.
Also i just upgraded to White Halo rings.. looks super.
