I do like that black and beige combination however my car was a black on black interior combo so I'm bringing just a subtle touch of white inside to match the white paint that's why I did all the silver plastics as white. Only stuff being done in white leather is the door panel inserts that flow through the b pillars, door panel armrests, front and rear seat inserts and console inserts. It's all at interior shop now when it's done I will put pics up. Also I'm doing all the lower sill panels, kicks and b pillars in suede cause mine have the ever so common peeling
That's going to look pretty nice! I can't wait for final pictures! Like I asked before, what are you doing with the asanti wheels? Any chance on selling em here?

sweeet!!!!

If you havent gotten a chance to eyeball the suspension for the Air ride, its pretty much the same as an E38 ( rears dead on/fronts will need a bracket relocated ) or go with Ksport's Air strut.

dont forget those little silver "shift" buttons on the steering wheel


subscribed...good luck with everything, I cant wait to see this all together!

I'm not really diggin the 2 tone paint but I'm sure it will look great in the end have you considered getting an AC Schnitzer Kit? It would make the front end look even better
