Default Puma's E30 'vert: "Johann"

So after I got out of the MINI game (one of the few regrets I have in my life), I snagged an '89 E30 convertible to play with. I haven't done anything (besides some lowering springs) to him yet, but I have a few plans that I need to put in motion. For now, here's the car and the projected build.

Puma's Proposed Project
  • m|u vinyl for rear driver window ASAP!
  • New brakes (researching options. Trying not to break the bank)
  • New rear window
  • Short shift kit and new bushings (he's got bad shifter wobble)
  • Custom shift knob (can't decide if I wanna go nerdy and Star Wars or sleek and Euro)
  • Removable hard top
  • Euro bumpers
  • IS front and rear valences
  • HIDs
  • New interior (thinking speedboat "leather" would be a good choice for a car that spends 80% of its time with the top down)
  • Fresh paint (haven't picked a color yet. Maybe a nice blue?)
  • Air ride (waaaaay down the line)
  • Wheels (maybe some 16x9 Keskin KT-1s to tie it back to Trouble?)
  • Engine stuff
  • Whatever else I can think of or you lot suggest…
