hi. daniel sent me here.

this is our cabrio. we purchased it for $10,000 off a dealer lot [we're the second owner] when it was 6 years young
it had 105,000 miles on it, and as of now has traveled an additional 35,000 happy, trouble-free weekender miles
there's a few oem+ mods done to the car, nothing major; just enough to enhance the driving experience

Well, his car is beautiful, but with yours you can write on the hood with chalk. spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

thanks for the compliments. it's been a love affair.
as far as mods goes:

15x7 et24 BBS RZs, refinished by our local wheel guru [www.skipswheelwerks.com]
205/55 RE750s
OEM E30 M3 springs
Bilstein TC struts/shocks
brembo blank rotors, akebono pads, red calipers
euro grille, H4/H1 hella lights, coupe lid, is lips, usa plate filler
factory accessory canvas seat covers, hexomats, coin tray, mtech 1 wheel

one day i'd like some euro rubstrips, factory fogs, and to switch to euro plate filler
a chip, injectors and catback would be nice, but ive got other projects in the garage
upcoming maintenance includes a suspension rebush, considering polyurethane
also on the list is a throttle body heater plate delete and icv clean; painting the intake and valve cover in the process

Looks like you like the German stuff. My parents used to own a S123 240TD (loved that one!) and a W201 190D.

I do like german stuff. Italian too.
Did I mention I ride and have owned BMW bikes longer than I've owned BMW cars?

here's my current project

The Italians are a sensation too, a bit more from the heart, but they don't last as good as the Germans. Rationalism wins over romance in a long run, in this case.

italian vehicles are so visceral, german so cerebral.
nothing tops the sounds that an alfa makes when you're bombing down a canyon road... when it's running right winking smiley
