Clean E30, reminds me of my old car. Why not go with the Mtech 2 aero treatment from the late model E30s? IMO it would really make all the hard work come full circle. Good work!

Thanks!

M-Tech 2 won't fit on this car. Its an early model with the metal bumpers. Conversion is a complete pain in the ass. Also, late model E30's with plastic bumpers are a dime a dozen. You hardly ever see an early model with Euro bumpers in the states. We wanted the car to be unique

We were going to do an M-Tech 1 but decided to hold of until the restoration was complete.

M-tech 1 would look sick... over all a very clean build. Many people don't know the 15" basket weaves never made it over on the US cars. Attention to detail is not missed

Nice!

I had a tough time deciding on what color to restore the car to but in the end, the idea of having a fully complete resto with the correct paint code won out. Alpine White turned out to be much better than I thought it would!

Nice! that swap looks super clean. it's nice to see some E30s on this forum. a huge DROOOOOL to the guy with the 320iS. not too many people know about that car. LOVE it. Here's mine, 2.9L M20, factory MT2 kit, Alpinas, etc (MT2 was a BIG project!):
