Is pelican parts a good site to order off of? What do you reccomend?
It was supposed to.

You want the same blue/blau?
Is it montrealblau? looks like it..

Get your paint code of the drivers side shock tower..
Go to automotivetouchup.com order rattle cans.
Take your time, dont hesitate, act like a pro.
lots of sanding.. and double checking is key.

Calilpers.. ?
rebuild if needed.. thats the cheap.
use good brake fluid

You can swap out for M3 calipers if you want..
but you need the spindles and stuff too.
bolts right up..

pelicanparts.. are well known and reputable.
stay away from anything that is chinese..
You dont put soy sauce on bratwurst.. or sauerkraut fried rice.

Only german parts Ok'd by BMW.. solves lots of headaches.

I would be willing to help you put a plan of attack together for your E36.
Some strategery is involved
