IMO, silver E36's are the only ones that can pull off the matched trim and still look good.



E30's are a different story.

It will make a huge difference. Car looks good other than that.

Not sure how I feel about the fogs, though. Maybe a little roll and spacers in the back too.

They made 150 '94 M-Techs, and to my knowledge, none of them were convertibles.
