    The MKs do look nice on this car, but is the wiper switch is installed incorrectly?

    If You ever decide to install wood trim in that nice interior, I have spare glove boxes from the Silbergrau interior

    Are you sure ? I think it's installed correctly, am I wrong ?

    I would love wood trim, but it's really hard to find parts for the silbergrau interior... I'd like to find 2 rear door panels first of all, because on mine the leather has shrunk on some places...

    Haha you're right mate, still no center caps because the original ones (MK Motorsport) are fucked, and they ask me about 100$ for 4 stickers... So I might want to do something custom, but I still don't know what I really want... If you guys have ideas I'm hearing you !!!

    PS : On the last pictures the center metal part isn't present on the front rim because I lost the screw Need to find a replacement one

    PS number 2 : If a moderator reads this message, is it possible the change the title of the topic ? If yes, please PM me Thanks !!

    Check this link:

    It's dutch so you can't read it i think. But this guy made some custom center caps mayby you can make contact with him.
    He did it with 3D Printing (i hope u know what i mean) mayby you can get some advice or something like that!?

    Look here: https://i.wheelsage.org/image/format...election_1.jpg

    Your wiper switch is positioned unlike all other E34s I have ever seen, but I'm more surprised of how did anyone manage to get it to be there in such position. Correct me if I'm wrong, but as an E34 owner, I spot things like these!

    I finally managed to find what was the cause of random stalls and electrical mistakes on the car... One of the coils was leaking, and the spark was directly going to the ground on the engine, making the whole electrical system erraticly working... Anyway, after 5 months, the problem is solved !

    Little picture, still waiting for the center caps !

    Here is the find of the day :







    Seven original AC Schnitzer Type I Monoblock wheels, each in 17x8.5 +13 offset, for 300... Couldn't resist to buy them, even if I don't know at the moment what I will do with them

    Ready to be sent to the paint shop !! Can't wait !

    My M-Technic parts are coming back from the paintshop tomorrow, can't wait... Pictures incoming tomorrow evening !!!

    Here are some news ! The complete M-Tech kit is installed (front bumper, rear bumper, side skirts w/ low door parts), and I love it I sprayed myself the black inserts on the bumpers, the result is quite good I think ! I also changed the whole exhaust (decat + M5 tips on the muffler). I think the car is really more agressive right now ! Here are some pictures :

    Back from the paintshop with the bumpers on, to keep them safe !



    Bumper inserts painting :





    Decat exhaust + new muffler :





    Final result :







    Tomorrow I will replace the dogbones and rear bar links :



    Really happy with the car right now !

    Thank you mate ! Haven't got any pics at the moment, I used a classic Meguiar's product, nothing really good... I'm gonna buy a full leather kit from Colorlock in France, I don't know if somebody knows the brand abroad ?

    Anyway, here are some pictures after a small wash today, really like the M-Tech body kit on the car !

    Chose promise chose due !
