Paid too much money for my 96, but it has been a downward spiral of parts and upgrades since.

Sitting now on a Bilstien PSS9 coil over system with DS1 M3 rims. Euro spec lights, and a custom black headliner.

Other modifications include a "FOGG"ed air box, Powerflex bushings all around,vented 328i Brakes with Hawk HPS pads and ATE rotors, and natural floor pan lightening.

I never did pick up another shell.. so right now I have a wrecked 97 shell in my garage I am currently ripping apart for both it's floor (to fix the floor in my Ti) and the rear suspension (for my fiat) not bad for $50 that I will probably get back when I sell the remains to the scrapyard.

In april the car will have it's floor repaired and will be stripped down for a respray. At that time the CF hood, M3 (twisty) skirts, Mtech rear bumper, and ACS lip spoiler will go on

She looks great on the outside! I'll bet you're happy to have found a good shell to swap parts over to. Best of luck, that will be a task.

LTW wheels?

no, not LTW... DS1s. I would love the LTW rims.. but these will do nicely. Hard to tell what they are with the centres repainted graphite

Well, the wheels look awesome! Trying to do something similar with my car.

WOW Really Paul?:
we actually have similarly set up ti's, I still need to track down an mtechnik set for mine tho. Well, and I'm sure yours has an interior....lol
