    i am refurbishing a different set of 16" that'll be permanently on the car. those basket weave 15" you see are only for purpose of rolling the car while work in prrogress.

    exposed metal

    i was pleasantly surprised to see very minimal cement-work underneath the paint. this car had been driven very carefully over the years.

    i wanted a 2.3 liter L-Jetronic since i was in Form 3, when a neighbour brought home a brand spanking new 323i. he also had a 3.0csl, but that's a different matter. doubt he knows it, but that neighbour was instrumental in turning me into a car nut. a great man, whom i had the honour of serving when i was employed at Proton.

    if you somehow manage to read this, thank you Sir.
