I've been a lurker on here for a while and figured I might aswell introduce myself now. I bought my 95 318ti in October for $2200 from a guy that was parting it out. Well I technically bought it from him. My friend bought it before me, put in a rear diff so that it could drive again, forgot to close the hood tightly and it flew up on the highway. This shattered the windshield and destroyed the hood. So he got a new windshield and then sold the car to me. Enough typing. Here are some pictures for you.

Almost immediately after I bought and washed it:


Roughly a month later:


At that time it was maxxed out on Rokkors in the rear and had about 3/4" in front to go.

And two Sundays ago:


That was taken by a new friend and photographer of mine, David (Davis) Monzingo.
I was scrambling to get the car together for Eurowerks Saturday and that is a shot during the ride home.
It is plastidipped Camo Tan right now. Took 13 cans, 4 hours, and staying up until 2am friday to get it done. Unfortunately we are dumb and didn't tape anything off. So there is still a lot to peel (such as parts of the mirror, misc rubber trim, and my rain tray). But we powered through to get it done so that my bumper and header panel matched the car for Eurowerks the following day. lol
The wheels are a set of Style 5's I bought for $650 and refinished by polishing the lips, coating them with shark hide, adding new nuts and gold bolts, and then making a custom center. Here is a better shot:

The center is now clearcoated instead of raw vinyl.

A short list of whats done currently.

Exterior:
Camo Tan plastidip
DJ Auto Projectors w/ city light (low beams delensed)
New Amber Corners
M Tech Bumper
Clubsport/M tech Door Moulding
M Tech Sideskirt (no plugs=/)
Black/White Roundels
Debadged "318"
Smoked vinyl over top of tail lights
Cattech Skid plate
17x8 Style 5's
Nexxen N3000 205/40 tires(didn't stretch as much as the usual 205/40 =/ )

Engine:
Original M42
Kamotors Intake
Midnight Tuning Solutions Chip(on the way)

Suspension:
E30 Bilstein HD rear shocks
Rokkor Coils (maxxed out and riding bump stops)

Interior:
Subaru modified shift knob
Shift boot and e-brake boot
Cleaned up a bit
Grip Royal Wheel( on the way)

Before:


After:


Peeled the roof Friday night, as well as delensed the low beams. My projector shrouds don't fit so I'm figuring out what to do there. Here is a crappy instagram picture that got pixelized when I put it on instagram=D


More things on their way in the mail. As well as an actual paint job soon=D
Any thoughts or criticism are welcome.

Squeelerz- Yeah I was there and the show was awesome. I was never there before. Did you see that red Ti that was m5x swapped and boosted with some major rearend work? Who is that? And thank you. It looks quite different=D

Slow- Not leaving you out. I've always liked you car. Its pretty sick. Those words mean a lot coming from you=)

You mean the ones missing jack plugs? =( I picked it because I've never seen anything near tan on an e36, I like the color tan, and then the fact that I don't believe anyone has dipped an entire car with the Camo Tan as of yet=D
