One question, are the blue and red motorsport stripes still available from BMW? Or if you're not using them - could I cheekily ask to buy yours?!

I have a motorsport front valence waiting to go on mine, the stripes would set it off a treat...

Thanks for the comments, the BMW stripes are a photoshop work

Tato, thanks for your interest in my car:

In the moment the car is sitting on a full 323i suspension, with Bilstein Sport Shocks, H&R coils, and Eurometric Urethane Bushings all around, 323i Brakes front and rear and struts bars. Limited Slip 4:10 Diff etc etc

The car handling its really great , and it goes fantastic on track days :launch . It is a very fun and sporty Car to drive :driving .

The engine is good, but it is not in the same level as the rest of the car. If you drive it, the first tought that came to your mind, is that the car needs a more powerful engine :rev to be in the same level of the rest of the car.

Maybe an Engine Swap, the plan is go for a modified M10 320/4 or an M42 .

Here some actual photos of the car:

Arshad, the material came from old rear seats, i have a friend who have a BMW junkyard here in uruguay (like fritz bits), so i bought from him like 5 sets of rear E21 seats, take off the material and re use it on the recaro seats.
