    Bloody hell Iain that was some mammoth rust repair you had to undertake there. So pleased you're keeping it Santorini, looks epic imho

    Any pics of the new interior mate?

    not all of it, so all the disassembly and most of the prep is done by me, Panel fabrication, welding and painting is being done by Dave Anderson, he's a good lad but a bit french :p

    I just couldn't see where it fitted in, as a track car it made no sense as the e36 it better in every conceivable way. As a road car it makes no real sense and ultimately i didn't see where or when i would use it.

    So once the mojo goes its time to move on, any disappointment was ameliorated with cash, and the rebuild of the track car will soak up money and time like they are both going out of fashion

    Haha. Yeah I get it, makes sense. I guess I thought the E30 held a special place in your heart, but I guess the developments and number of track days in the ‘36 kind of relegated it.

    Still rolling in the old AMG wagon too? Any future car ideas floating around?

    Yep, still running it, apart from a few odds and sods its cost me nothing in 60k and 7 years and the kids make a mess of more or less everything.

    I thought about getting a f10 m5 but other than the c32 being truly dire on fuel it does what i need for no money and i have never given a toss about keeping up with the jones's

    More or less all of my spare time is going into this one way or another
