Headlight washer nozzles, un-red calipers, front lip, skirts, and UUC rear spoiler give it away. More of a fraternal twin than an identical twin.

Yeah, they're awesome, but often have fitment issues. Usually they don't sit flat, so one end is pointed upward and you get a goofy gap. I'm pretty sure they're no longer in production, but I sure wish someone would start making them again and do it right.

Thanks for clarifying, I only worked on the engine, cooling and electrical to get it running. When I traded it I got it in that condition. I think I want a real e36, I'll start looking for one when I have money for a proper stock 328 or m3 or maybe a 318ti, those seem like fun. Should I part it out on the forum? I could probably ship internal components (not like anyone wants anything from the exterior lol)

I really like this edit! The colors are really sharpened/brightened without losing the car in the process.

Yea he did an amazing job, it actually looks like my car now. The pic before you could tell it was a pic, the edit one makes it look like its real life and not a pic.

Thanks! I'd love to come out to the East Coast and shoot all your guy's cars... I think I can do them serious justice, especially unique colors like yours!

Im just going to wait untill I paint the entire car down the road...dont feel like spending $100ish bucks on paint and clear etc for just the mirrors...if I already had paint I would do it in a heartbeat.
