lol thanks guys appreciate the comments will be giving it a full polish and shine and full service .

to do list:

- change alloys ( suggestions pls )
- change to bilstein shocks and springs
- steering rack needs fixing
- temperature starts rising when stopped at lights need to find the problem
- flywheel needs replacing


thats it for the moment

I love it, very nice E30. :thumb:

I like the alloys, something different from the norm. The temperature issue is probably the viscous fan.

Looking good! More than likely viscous fan, folded paper test when the engine is up to temperature - should not be able to slow the fan , paper should be torn. Easy job to do if you buy the tool to hold the bolt in place whilst you use the viscous spanner to undo the (reverse threaded) nut. People have done it without the tool but it made it a lot easier for me when I did it.
