Whitey, I love your car.

Here is mine after a nice wash (and the cherry blossoms picked off it...losing battle)...Rims on the side are a thing to come, waiting on some spacers.

One of the reason I got the car that and it is an "89 530i. Was kinda pain getting insurance since it did not show up in the database as a US model.Should have my Clear corner lights and new tail lights( went with the Spyders i like the clear in the middle) new spoiler be here Fri. Things are moving right along with the outside. then onto the inside.Came with a Superchip and a K&N filter. yah Whiteys ride is super slick.

Superchip? Does your car have a m60 engine?

Whitey- I am having the dealer confirm or deny the Superchip the week after next. There were a few 3L V8's made from my understanding( or lack of) on the 89 530i's. Having a hard time finding good information on it due to it not being sold here in the states.all the local shops scratch theirs heads when I tell them what I have since it doesn't show up in their databases. They keep asking if its a 525 or 535 then I tell no its a 530.They get this look on theirs faces.So I will post the outcome after the dealer does the once over.

BmwMan92- Lets see besides the audio/video system I have the DTM( no mesh) Front spoiler on its way from BavAuto( was in MD as of 1:45PM yesterday), Clear front corner / parking lights( loved Whiteys so I had to get them ), Spyder center Clear tails lights( whole kit tails and trunks). Some paint work after the spoiler goes on. Interior Blue LED kits, Multi color under body LED kit.Carbon Fiber veneering the center console wood piece. after that is all finished I don't know. Thought about Vert/Lambo door kits but that just me trying to be young again I think.had them on one of my M3's. I will get after the engine soon though.Can't leave it as is if the rest is getting attention.Don't want it to get jealous

and can't forget the Bimmerfest stickers . will look good with the SoundStream tarantulas.
Update: Spolier will be here tomorrow morning!

I will post interiors after the shop does the audio system right now the front door skins are rough and the seats need a bit of work, leather is all dry.had the first treatment done to them to see if they can be brought back to life.and drivers side front has come away from the seat seams.Why the seats are black leather when the rest of the interior is shades of blue with the headliner and front pillars a light gray felt.all the gray is getting replaced. needs a little TLC on the inside but most of that I can do myself.Inside I can do, the outside and engine i am clueless but I am trying to learn.

Hi, here is my 92 535i (work in progress) as you can tell. Replacing tank, front and rear rotors and pads . Yes, small garage, but it works.

Whitey, wastemaster and thr33 - nice cars!!

535i - that garage would be a luxury to me. I do all my work in my driveway (that isn't level)!!

I'm getting kind of sick of asking someone to make this a sticky... who has the power to make this one?!
