kmn stanced E36 325i Cabriolet on Carline's!

Postitus Postitas kmn »

Hi all,

hereby presenting you my longtime neverending project. I live in Finland and originally brought this car 3-4 years back from Estonia (Valga to be exact), so this might be familiar for some of you people.. Would be nice to hear some details of the history of this car, if possible?! The car had Rondell 58's on it when i bought it, but after this the car had 3 different wheel setups including BBS RS replicas, 10x17 Rondell's all around etc.. Also the car had been repainted with Jaguar Sapphire Blue metallic at some point for whatever reason..

This is how the car looked when i bought it:



And this is how it looks now...
