Really clean Convertible. Can't wait for more pictures & updates. Is it Orient Blue?

Looks good Stew, is it the cream coloured interior?

I do prefer 17's on an e36, I think the 18's on mine are a tad too big! Style 24's do look good

I'm quite eager to get stuck into it and get it done
Plan is a really nice example of a E36 cab not mint because it has to be a useable everyday car but as close as

17" would be the biggest I'd go I would like to get some BBS wheels "as fitted to the 328i sports" but the experience and hard to keep clean
but if I can fine a nice set of 16" il be happy with that

They'll be the RC041's (or 041 fronts and 042 rears if you want stagger)... Biggest issue is with the polished lips - if you get the lips diamond cut and then lacquered, or even powder coated, the biggest headache of keeping them goes away... :thumbup:
