It's worth it, minus the part where i'm afraid to touch it and use window to open the door now
I'd like to see the rest some time my friend. My panels are white like that too. I need my seat recovered but I think I'm just gonna get some covers from bavarian for now.

Here is Greenie a few days ago:



What you see: two rust spots on the passenger side door, two broken fog lights, peeling & fading clearcoat and brake dust. What you don't see under the hood: $635 in cooling system parts and 8 hours of labor (not to mention turned rotors and new brake pads).
The list goes on of new parts, and the hours add up in the last 1.5 years of ownership, but I still rock the e34 every single day over my e46 as my daily driver. Still chasing a slight vacuum leak and power steering/brake fluid leak.

Here is a before and after picture of my car without and with summer rims. The only thing i don't like about the rims is how they seem to accentuate the height of the nose. I have gotta get the front lowered a bit. I also noticed that the tech that mounted the tires put some of the balance weights on the exposed lip, when i asked him not too. I am a bit disappointed about that and am contemplating going back. But i am excited non the less!

you should take it back, no excuse if you asked them to put it on the back

I've received a lot of PMs on how I made my sig pic:



And here is the story...

Take a 10 year old camera, in my case a 2-megapixel Finepix 2600Z:



And a 7 year old photo editing program:



Perform a single effect on the picture ("glowing edges")...
Before:


After:


And you're set!

Here is another picture of my e46 that I think turned out great:
