Exhaust has already been installed, trying to get pics, but I need someone with a camera. All my money's going into the car, not photography. :p That purple tint on the brake light's gotta go. I'm gonna get a new tint on it sooner or later. And yes, that's me, if you were wondering.

The interior is getting a lot of work. I'll be visiting junkyards in the near future for a bottom dash and some new seatbelts, mine barely work as is. I need a decent way to attach that dash cover if I'm gonna keep it. I think there was some armor-all or something slick that glue won't hold to. I'm also getting a lot of aluminum interior parts from Niki's-Place, mostly by AC Schnitzer. What do you guys think?

for a bottom dash try to get one from a E30 89 or newer cuz theyre nice and padded and look nicer. and maybe paint some of ur bumper moldings a semi-gloss black to make it look newer. also try to find a M-tech I sterring wheel :) what kind of exhaust do u have?

Thanks for the advice MrM3! I got the Tri-Flo Exhaust system from Bavauto.com. It's really nice, sound and rpm control. My idle used to jump around from 750 to maybe a little over 1000. Now it's much better. Not perfect, though. maybe 750-850 or so, but better! I've looked at some steering wheels before, but i can't see 'em going with my interior. What do you think of that dashmat? Would it be better to look for a newer dash at a junkyard or something?

i see lots of potential. if you haven't seen Randy's E30 M3 with the E36 M engine in it you should totally check out his car and get tips. Do a google search for "Randy's E30"

Wow, Randy's e30 is AWESOME! :eek: :eek: I really like the grill and the kidneys. Is that an "eyelid" kinda thing? and does anyone know where he got it?

Completed Mods
-Short shift kit
-8mm Ignition wires
-tri-flo exhaust
-front and rear stress bars
-Aluminum Foot Rest

Future mods (Some parts already aquired, just need to be installed)
-Air intake (Unsure. Maybe the Green Twister?)
-Aluminum 3-pedal set
-Bilstein Sport Shocks (have 'em)
-Lowering Springs (have 'em)
-Slotted, Cross-drilled Rotors (have 'em, waiting for front brake pads from Pagid)
-Chrome/Aluminum interior trim
-Body kit (Unsure what I want yet)
-Paintjob (Dark Silver?)
-Wheels (Unsure)

Any other suggestions? Thanks! :D

I thoroughly reccommend building up the motor and adding forced induction (either supercharger or turbo, your choice) so your car will be just as fast as it looks.

I don't have the funds for anything like that. :( What else can i do besides the supercharge or anything? I know I'm getting a new air intake, but not sure what kind yet.

there have been alot of successful 2.8i/2.7i Stroker conversions on the eta engine. that would probably be ur best bet if u really want more power. S/c'ing wouldnt be a good idea on a stock 2.7e
