I like the black rims. Those 16s?

Not a fan of 14" Alpina-type wheels.

So you have both a blue and malaga E9? Or has the malaga E9 been just now painted blue?
I do have 2 E9 Malaga and the blue one that I got about 6 mount ago, Blue one is 71 2800cs and Malaga is 3.0cs Blue one brings back the memory before I got marred I fined my wife when I was driving Blue E9 that's why I start renew the blue one to see if I can make it look like the one I had 40 years ago

The rims on the blue car are e12 turbines and in my opinion are not very attractive. Same with bright yellow headlights, especially on a burgundy as they are too yellow but that is just me.

the spoiler is belong to E31 I change my mined to install it on my E31 since original bumper is nice but I modify the spoiler for E9 it was little wide for it since E31 front is a lot wider than E9 I think it will be nice on E9 what you guys think it is much better than E9 flat spoiler that I never like the original spoiler

Should be interesting on how it'll turn out. It'll be a ton of work, but may look good.

I'm picky on spoilers. I prefer the CSL (typical one either w/holes or ducts)

or the 635 style (which I hear requires a ton of work too to make it work):

Oops! I know what you meant but clarifying for later.

These are the 14” turbines on the blue example car that @Candia4441 does not own.

These are 16” BBS replicas and the Malaga car that @Candia4441 owns:

Just to be thorough, these are factory 14” slotted alloys on the blue car that @Candia4441 owns:
