I OP.

Nice job chef. I tore mine down today and made my list. It will be nice to have the M back.

Your car is looking spectacular. One of my favorites.

Its far from it. I just leave the details out of the pics.
I love the car though, and everything I do to it makes me love it more.

Thanks chef. Validation from you is in the highest regard. Work and car related. Hopefully I get down to Cali like I have been talking about and we can shoot the shit over a nice pale ale or two.

Love techno violet so much, and that interior Quite possibly the nicest E36 interior I've seen on here.

Splitter is mostly on. Still need to fiddle with the centre mounts as they are ****ing trash. I heard the rep brackets were good, but should have realized how low of standards people have with parts for these cars sometimes. Live and learn.
LTWs will go back on tomorrow and the car will get a good wash. Need to raise it a bit and align it. Its almost time for the real driving season to start.

Took out my real camera, and it died before I took the first ****ing pic. Had to use my wife's iPhone.

Still looks great, regardless of the iPhone pics.

Looks great, but how long until it gets ripped off by a speed bump or driveway incline (or a curb)?

Who knows? I'm more worried about frost heaves/construction. Every car I've had before this one has sat lower so I know how to deal with angling properly in and out of lots and over speed bumps.
I like it enough to just buy another one if that happens, and its not expensive unless replacing the entire assembly.
Its pretty sturdy. I'm going to raise up the car 1/2 an inch as well since I'm old now.

Well, it looks great so would be a shame for it to get knocked off.

Thank you, its probably going to be part of it though.
The good part of it though is the hardware is spring loaded so it allows it to slide inward in case of an impact. I'll just drive with my butt clenched lol.
