Awesome! I'm driving my E36 through some crappy weather for the next week in a row (been lazy and haven't checked tire pressure in a while, was low 5 PSI on all corners).

Please let me know when you install the new spoiler. Did you get it new or used? I've been toying with the idea of one as well (We really are twins, minus the fact that your interior blows mine out of the water).

Thanks guys, picked up some stuff from my mailbox in the states today so got to fixing a couple nagging problems that bugged me today.
Fixed all the broken clips on my rear door card, new clips on the side mouldings to tighten them up.
Stuff to go in still is floor mats to go in the spring, yellow LEDs for city lights in the headlights, new bowden cable for the driver seat since it won't fold properly, Z3 passenger floor parcel net, and the LTW wing. Still need to find 1 more LTW 17x8.5 wheel so I can go squared set.

I'll keep you posted. I'm heading to the body shop tomorrow that was recommended by a friend with an e39 M5 locally as they want to check out the car and give an estimate. They work with mostly porsches, ferraris, etc so hopefully they are good enough to match 16 year old e36 paint, although I haven't seen any paint on a new ferrari or porsche (other than mexico or riviera blue) I'd take over mine.
I got the wing from abrahams motorsport and from what I have seen they are the absolutely only option for an LTW wing other than stock. There are tons of reps out there and so many of them look like ****ing garbage. Fitment looks like it will be great, and from those I've seen in person are that were ordered from these guys.

Cool. On something as obvious as the trunk, I'd need a good fitting piece. I've never had any luck with rep items for the e92.

I'm sure they'll do a good job matching. I ordered an ebay lip spoiler painted for $55 shipped. It was a little too wide, but paint match was surprisingly good haha

Check out Paolo m3s build a few posts down. He has the same wing. Looks awesome on his car.
Heres a link to 35 page thread that has comparisons of a lot of the different LTW reps and oem.

Put in my new floor mats. What a difference they make. Also ordered a set of LTW/gt carbon door sills. Nothing else new. Bored on my week off wishing the weather wasn't so shitty.

Nothing new but a picture. Had a good trackday a few weeks ago, replaced vanos gasket and some pulleys/belts. Trying to put a spending hiatus on the car other than maintenance and just enjoy it for what it is this summer! Its hard though.

Clean example of a proper E36. Wish I had the funds to work on mine, but I'm too focused on the other car
