My first BMW...E36 M3

well after being a long time driver of hondas.....and a G35 along the line.....I always wanted to try out German engineering and have one of my own (although i still have much love for Japanese cars). i just picked up a '99 E36 m3 convertible with 87,500 on the clock. i'll be needing alot of help and advice along the way with all this German craziness. here are a few pics of my previous rides.....and my new toy

went from this


to this


to this (had some things to take care of....desparate times call for desparate measures)


and finally today....this:






we'll see where this project takes me.....lol :thumbup: :thumbup:

thanks for checking Weezie (a-la The Jeffersons) out,
Chris

they were r-compound tires....street legal and all but would perform best on a track. i made the stencil. the tires would rub depending on the dip i was going down in the road or the bump and how fast i was going. but yeah...it was DUMPED!

Some very nice cars. The s2k is amazing -- if I had that I would never ever sell it.
