I kinda wonder the same thing. I think with how much it must have sat, and the amount of work it would need to be a drivable car again, maybe it is better suited to being the nicest original E36 M3 in the world even if it means never being driven again.

I think...maybe...when you buy 7,000 dollar wax, you probably arent in the business of buying bargain basement tires. (not that there is anything wrong with Azenis, as I have owned three sets myself, and three sets of ZIEX's, as well)

I like a clean car, but that level of clean doesn't make sense to me. Cars are in fact meant to be driven. I don't think cars that clean ever see the road.

If I was going to get absurd and spend a couple days on a car like that (which I've done a couple times), I'd have cut down that orange peel. yuck!

Personally, I would have driven it through a car wash on my way to the autocross. But it is amazing what he was able to do with it!

I may not have even put that much effort. Fingerpaint AutoX numbers into the dust
