Where did 4 years go? :shock:

Well my orange 323i caught fire, so I spent over 2 years building a replacement. It's a non sunroof 316 and has LEDA suspension, WMS brakes and an M52/2.8 conversion. There are several more mods but it remains a daily driver.

The E30 is my trackday car.

I've just bought an E36 Compact and plan to build a budget sprint / hillclimb car. I'll be trawling the FOR SALE section for bits.
