Love me some Grey UberKaro! I get a set sitting in my basement waiting for me to get back to the states! If you ever end up in Germany let me know and we can take the E30s out : )

Car is beautiful man, well done. I love red BMWs, had one myself. Honestly, I think red is one of the most durable colors BMW put on an e30. Mine looked like hell when I bought it and after a clay bar and buff it look like new.

I actually like the red. Makes the tail lights blend in a bit. Classic look. I just don't like standing out and getting beaten by cops lol.

I have never had any attention at all from the police in this, do they give you grief in the states in e30s?

Uh. Never got pulled over in any of my red E30s. I just feel like red stands out too much.
