I’ve always been a fan of old European cars, BMW’s in particular. I was inspired by a few of the E30s built overseas which made me want to get one for myself and try and get it to that level. I bought the car in pretty rough condition in November 2012.

My favourite thing about the car would have to be the custom paint work done by GT Refinishers. I spent countless months looking at nearly every possibility for the colour, trying to find something that’s a mixture of classic and unique.


What’s next on the list?

The car’s currently in Hamilton getting a custom boot set-up done by Get Low Customs. It’s then off to Midnight Upholstery to completely redo the interior (front and rear seats, dash, carpet, headliner etc). I also have a set of custom Rotiforms due to arrive in NZ in the next week or two.
