3D recreation, requesting reference pictures

Hello folks. I am not sure if this thread is appropriate but I think this is the only place I can go to for what I need right now.

First, let me introduce you to the project that I have been working on and off since December of last year by showing you pics of my progress.

Cluster render:


Head lights:


Lit up:

Interior progress

Latest interior progress:

The irony is that I have never been inside an e30. But, I do have over 400 reference pictures that got me this far. Now I am texturing different parts of the interior so I need better references, closeups of buttons for example.

Here is one of the places where I need a good reference picture of, the instrument panel:

So basically I need reference pictures from anyone that owns and e30 of buttons and little stuff like that. Any pics are welcome

Thanks for reading.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.
