yeah idk i'm havin second thoughts about it....not because its "a camo valence" but the car its on.... would be sick on fcsteve's right now with the flat black pj

i have a 89 325i also that is pretty rough....and that would be the car to do the off the wall kinda stylin with if i ever did put it on the road......

but my e i built to be really clean and i think it looks better w/o the camo...

i painted it with acrylic so i can take it off pretty easily.... idk i'll see what i'm thinkin in the near future

i think everyone here would agree that a camo mtech II front would look all kinds of horrible. my car is actually semi-gloss but the weather was pretty ****ty that day. my hood is flat, but its just high gloss sanded down for paint. which is something i have been putting off for like 2 weeks so far. i have the gloss black in the garage, but i have been deciding on whether i want to do a facelift rear end with euro filler or not. too many decisions

poor pic quality FTL ..

looks kind of high in pictures. but in person its very low. i tuck tire in the fronts. pic from the other day.

pics from today.



as i was washing my car my euro grills came. euro vs US grills. notice the beautiful tears the ground made in my lower right side .. FTL


i also put in my e36 power heated seats. total cost .. about $65

words cant describe how nice heated seats are. the power functions and the sport leg adjustment option are ok. but the heat is the best part. they heat up quick, maybe 2 minutes till they are heated up. megan and kim were pretty happy about not having to sit on the cold metal floor anymore.

i still need to find or fab up a location to put the buttons. and i need new seat knobs. i had to install the e36 seat belts, which wasnt bad. but all in all .. they are better then i expected.
