Initially I thought it was one of those "oh crap, didn't mean to hit the shutter button" photos (like I seem to have a lot of).

We're just joking with ya Alan! You've got to experiment to get great pics. Sometimes they work out, sometimes not so much. Here's one of my "experiments".

I'm thinking about naming it "Dark Days of my E36".

The beauty of the digital age! Think about how much it would have cost you with film! Now you just snap and look and get near instant feedback, and even if the photos not perfect you can post process and make it better.

Thanks. As far as the badge, I saw that coming. But as 13 channels of television once told me, Different strokes for different folks. Just spent a few days grinding back some problem areas and prepping panels. Shes off at the paint shop now. Ill post pics upon its return.

Maybe next time you can install the grilles so they aren't upside down?

Now, how much could I sell it for? I'm thinking about getting a 325 or 328 in better shape

its got 244,300km on it, timing chain rattle due to the guide assembly mount snapping off the motor, power windows make snapping noises while moving and don't fit the mould, heater core, weird electrical issue where the blinkers blink twice as fast with the interior lighting on, and the list really does go on forever (I find new problems every day).
