Quite possibly one of the nicest interiors I've ever seen in an E36.

When I saw this I recognized I understated my feedback by not pointing out how totally impressed by the interior...and not just of "any e36"...great job and you have evvery right to be proud. Thank you for continuing to share this 'journey' with us.

Your car looks great also, so no need to spend on it!
It's never too much ir you like your car. These cars were very expensive when new, so we can have them now for a lower price in mint condition. Do you agree with me?

Techno has a 'cool' factor, but Montego Blue is absolutely incredible. Your car is amazing and you should be very proud of your work. The leather work is top notch. Although it's an automatic, it's a diesel....which I would give my left arm for!

How many miles are on it?

Very nice E36, really is. Love the new paint and your interior is better than new! Looks good with the Alpina wheels. If this had been a 325iA, it would even be more perfect Sorry, but I'm no diesel fan
