1999 - E36/8 - Z3///M Coupé
« Gepost op: 15 maart 2015, 10:24:10 »
Hi There

I recently moved to Belgium and just picked up a new to me coupe. It's my 3rd coupe in the last three years black S50 sunroof delete with the two tone interior. I have a lot of work planned for it and its currently getting the rear floor fixed so will be ready for the meet next Sunday in Gent  :)
Thought I'd share some past and present pics of my coupes over the years.



RIP





Cheers,

Gordon

Hi,

Welcome! Nice coupe! :thumbsup:
This is, however, the wrong place for this car so I will move your topic.

Can you also please adjust your title to follow the guidelines please?

Thanks!

Thanks Tom,

I'm getting it fixed at a local workshop recommended by Bmw. They have done a coupe and two e46 boot floors so I trust them. I was planning on the Randy Forbes but didn't as I  need the car back on the road asap. The shop said that they will weld in new plates similar to Randys kit.

I live near Lommel where abouts are you? Will you be attending the meet in gent this weekend?

I live near Antwerp with my Randy forbes'ed imola coupe  :P Sadly I can't get to Gent this weekend.
Does your car have severe damage ? I drove with a messed up trunk floor for nearly 3 months. It took me 3 weeks to source the parts, but it's well worth it  :thumbsup:

Good luck with the coupe! I'll be in Ghent so hopefully I'll see you there :thumbsup:

The S50 is much more raw in terms of power delivery and not having any traction control makes you double think in the wet ;)
Aside from that I can't say one is faster than the order as its been a few years since I had the S54.

I was on foot and very excited because I spotted another Clownshoe in the wild  ;D
It looked like you were hunting for parking space. Do you live in that region ?  :)

I have a imola red 98' in the garage, not registered at the moment though. :-\
I live in Antwerp but my girlfriends origins lie in St Truiden so we spend most of our weekends there.
