How Your Car Sits

I also got rid of the pinstripes on my R. However, they were underneath the clearcoat. 

Between the repairs I had done in June and the last week,  the whole wagon has been given a fresh coat of Venetian Red. I’ll post more details in my build thread soon. 

Well that made it a bit harder to remove them :P 

Paint job looks amazing! Have you considered a clear bra to protect it?

Said goodbye to the R on Friday. Didn't want a car payment anymore and wanted a wagon. Couldn't find any halfway decent P80 wagons around here so got this instead. 05 325iT. Trunk is a few inches shorter than than the R but the backseat is significantly bigger which is important with 2 car seats. 

 

How many places does it leak from? Also surprised to here it has more room than a P2. I can barely fit the front facing seat in the back of mine. Get some good tires in 245 width all around and enjoy it. 

My '03 330 with Koni FSD's and Eibach springs.

Yeah, I was not pleased when I found out the stripes were under the clear. I’m so happy they’re finally gone. 

Once the fresh paint is fully hardened I’m gonna have the whole car polished and ceramic coated 😁 

It’s currently parked outside of my apartment:

That's kind of what I was thinking; that's too nice of a car not to have it in a garage at night..

:laugh: thanks Brad!

Gdog, while I don’t have my own garage, I am careful about where I park and it’s typically getting parked in the city garage across the street from my apartment so it’s better than nothing.

No leaks. And my wife and I are short, so that helps. But definitely more room in the back seat.

I misjudged a U-turn last year and my bumper ate sh*t. Still sits like that. Moving to AZ so that will get fixed with everything else before the big drive.
