Hi Guys,

Razvan,a reader of the BMW E36 Blog, has sent me some photos of his convertible BMW E36. The car looks great and it’s very clean but I have some ideas that could make the car look even better. First, I would change the rims to something similar to this one. Also, the car looks a little bit high and looks like it needs a drop. So, this is the second thing to do. Other than these points, I think the car looks great and doesn’t need any other modifications.

Take a look at the photos and let’s hear your opinions. Do you think there’s something else you can do to this car?

    Nice vert. I like the clean looks of it… what’s the name of that body colour? I also think that maybe you could get another set of rims and that would make a big difference. The ones you already have are OK (perhaps I’m a little biased since I think the rims on my bimmer are fugly and anything else is better)

    I suggest some style 37s, or 47s ( no bigger than 17″. If you live in a place full of bumpy roads don’t lower it 🙂

    It is veery nice as it is, dont ‘overpimp’ it.

    Never liked the look of the convertible’s. dunno if it’s just me or not but they just don’t look right. they always look way to long.

    Slap a cat-back on there and you got a pretty nice, well rounded E36. I would upgrade the sound system too. Might as important for some people, but for me its a must 🙂

    Hi guys,
    Thanks for the tips!
    I’m done with modifications on this car… The sound system is perfect like this because is the original one and I don’t like loud music (only music I love on this car is the sound of the 6 cilinder motor 🙂 and the exhaust )really 🙂
    “If you live in a place full of bumpy roads don’t lower it ” – yeap! bumpy roads all over the place 🙂
    the Colour is MOREAGRUEN METALLIC (288)

    Convertible topic: About the small, black trim piece surrounding the outside of the rear window…what glue will re-attach that to the fabric? On my ’97 328i the trim is separating right where flex is and now loosening beyond that? Any suggestions? vendors? Thanks!!

    @Michael: Hi Michael, I suggest you post this question to the BMW E36 Forum instead. I’m sure you’ll get your answer there.

    Salut (hello) , super masina (super car) … nici nu stiam ca e de romania , am examinat-o super atent :)) (i didn’t knew the car is from romania , i examined her super carefuly) . daca o tii la curte , garaj , merita sa ii faci un alt bodylook , gen full m3 , dar daca nu ai garaj nu merita , mie mi-au furat o gramada de pe ea. (if you have a garage , it worths to take an m3 bodylook) 🙂

    Masina s-a vandut acum 2 ani… Mi-as dori sa-i mai fac modificari 🙂
    Chiar as fi curios sa vad in ce sare a ajuns… Am vazut-o pe autovit anul trecut…

    (hi, the car was sold two years ago…. I wish to see her now but i don’t know where is it…)
