my e30 325i sport

Post by pukar » Fri Aug 10, 2012 2:06 am

...after a clean earlier this year. the car is by no means pristine as it is my daily driver, but looks half decent after a good scrub!

please ignore the high headrest in the back :oops:, it's where the childseat goes

i didn't know there was another car section here..... :D

Atul, is yours stock? It appears to be :think

Making me wistful for my old one just looking at it. Than I remember just how much effort I put into just one car :x

Love the new addition to the AG range :lol:

Charles will be all excited if he sees this with NOG in the background :lol: The number of times he's visited them, I'm surprised not to see #49 in the background!

Sadly, she won't be ready for Gaydon, due to a b@lls up by the window fitter.

But heres a few more pics from today:

he even managed to chip the paint, so that has to be corrected too.

and this is what I am not happy about with the rear seal:

I have not gone to all this trouble for piss poor things like this!

I know, not happty that she won't ready for Gaydon, as I was getting very excited for her to be ready!

But as the new window seal has to come from Germany, the window to be taken out, the bodyshop to correct the chip, refit the window, decided that when I show the car that she is completely sorted.
Also having the new wishbones, bushes and ARB bushes fitted this week too, so will make steering a lot tighter.

Appreciate the positive comments guys also, anyway we can point out Atul's imperfections! :lol:

Ade are you attending the Sytner meet in Sept? What I thought I might do is try and persuade the Mrs to drive the E30 down, while I bring the Alpina, which ever one I may be in.....

Can treat her to a big mac!
