Whats left to do is:

- Finish off my headlights
- Fit the cat back on
- Front strut brace
- Paint and fit rear spoiler
- Tint the rear windows
- Fit new carpet
- Finish painting trim
- New wheel centre caps
- New bonnet badge
- Leather interior
- DVD Stereo with screen

Should all be happening in the next week or two, and hopefully it will be taxed and MOT'd before Februarys meet smile

I know what you mean about the front looking so much higher than the back, same with mine, although granted this does exaggerate it a little due to the incline...

Presumably why most lowering springs always lower the front more than the back?

The ones I have fitted are 40mm front and 35mm back

presume you would want black though? but good price.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Full-E36-M3-v...374QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

pretty sure these would fit, and you would be left with a redundant handle to tilt them forwards... and wow, what a seat!

IIRC the 4 door E36 is quite rare though isnt it?

If you got the 3dr leather, only the front seats are of any use.... frown

no lotto win mate, I wish! Tis a bit higher than I wanted to pay, but it's pretty much the main thing to buy to get it on the road as soon as.

Yeah, 4dr interior is quite rare, and yeah the front seats would be the only thing I could use frown

Some breakers sell the back seats separate, so if I can find Coupé front seats cheap enough, might be worth buying them separate - not £650 though just for front seats

Finished wiring the headlights tonight.
One of the ballasts for the HIDs is fooked, so I'll have to try and find out whats wrong with it.

Switched the HID bulbs around too so it is now on the outside thumbsup

Also decided to remove my boot install as I probably won't use it and it was taking up space and adding extra weight.

coming along well,cant wait to see it with trim back on,and with the plans completed it'll be pure sexwee.

my mate fitted E46 front seats into his E36 and they fitted well,with little effort,rear seats may fit too with some tweaking? and leather E46 seats may be more common than E36?

fancy it,cant wait to see leather in it tho
