    Welcome, Brungie...very nicely done, and good pictures. One question, what is attached to the door panel just in front of the arm rest/pull in picture 3..(looks like two boxes)?
    I will bet that you get many questions about the car whenever you drive to town!

    Yeah not that many youngsters around here hahah
    Correct, those are electric mirror controls. I suppose it was an OEM option back then?

    Hi Brungie,

    Beautiful coupe! I love the color of your interior and your Recaros fit well. Keep posting pictures. I would love to see the back seats and a full shot of an empty seat. Also a better pic of the leather wrapped dash. I have to say that the Mahle's are my favorite. I like the look of 18's on coupes when lowered, but prefer RS's or RC's. Good job!

    Thanks man,
    I think 17" are ideal for the coupe and I prefer RS to RC but dad's taste is a bit different haha. I do like the look of the wide 245 rears though.
    I don't have a photo of rear seats but they are upholstered in same leather as the recaros and door panels. I'm at uni now so I'll get a photo when I come back home in April.
    The dash photo is quite bad but hopefully gives an idea. I'll definitely do a proper photoshoot in April.

    Also, we are considering a new exhaust system because we put a fresh OEM rear muffler and it is just to quiet compared to the old one with burned membranes that actually sounded better. Are there any popular options?
    I found this one from Caragraphic but never heard about them before http://www.cargraphicts.com/en/prod...r-bmw/30l-csi-coupe/e9/sport-exhaust-systems/

    Those 16's look great but aren't they Rial's?

    What are the tire sizes on those, including the profile? I see some stretch and I like it!

    I said mahle style because I wasn't sure what they were. I believe they are Rial's yeah.
    We'll probably get the yellow part repainted in black or a proper gold paint.

    Tires were 205/50 but I'm not sure about the wheel width.

    Lovely!

    Although not OEM, the stitched dash pads really look good. Got me thinking since I have cracks in mine.

    What a beautiful car! Good job
    Did you use the factory settings for the kw coilovers or did you change anything (height etc)

    Dobar dan Brungie. I'm in Zadar almost every summer (my wife is originally from Pag); I'll have to keep an eye out for your beautiful coupe!
