Brooke Stabbert's mint sleeper

To quote Brook:

1972 2002 sunroof coup - The car was originally Malaga Red, but was stripped to bare metal, acid etched, and repainted with a 2 stage acrylic urethane base/clear in Cinnabar Red (‘80’s BMW color) in 1994. At this time a Turbo front valance was added and euro turn signals were also installed. In 1998 the M2 conversion was done using a 1990 S14 with only with only 23,000 miles with Turbo radiator and exhaust system, Turner chip, and Evo exhaust cam gear.

The motor still has less than 35,000 miles and is very healthy, recently dyno’d at over 180 HP at the rear wheels. A 5-speed OD transmission was installed with a 3.91 LSD out back. All suspension components were removed from the car, bead blasted and powder coated gray. Tii front struts were used with Bilstein HD shocks, Ireland springs, and ST sways.

Brakes are vented front rotors from a ’77 320i with 528i calipers and 320i rear drums. I shaved the inner fender lips and mounted 205/50 Falkens on 15 x 7 Rota wheels. It’s a very tight fit, but everything clears. I added period Hella 118 euro fog lights to the front bumper. The interior has 320i Recaro’s done in the blue/black cloth and the rear bench recovered to match and a 380mm Momo Prototipo steering wheel finishes it out. I want to go to a set or period correct sport seats, but that will come later.
