Car: 1988 Nissan Silvia Ks
Bought it from Victoria. :D

1983 BMW 323i E30

$7000 engine rebuild, engine only 40000 kms on the new engine- balanced, polished, ported and blue printed, warm cam.
Full exhaust from extractors to twin-tips out the back
Limited slip diff
Z3 M coupe finned diff cover
Harrop discs with Corvette C5 calipers
All bushes and engine mounts replaced with nolethane or H/D
Camber kit
Eibach strut brace
Upgraded radiator
17 inch rims with Hankook K 104 high performance tyres
Bilstein HD shocks with Eibach springs
Balanced and strenghtened tailshaft
Z3 short shift kit
Blaupunkt 10 stack CD player fixed in boot
Alpine speakers
M3 steering wheel
Leather gear knob
Leather hand brake handle
Interior updated to late-model E30 gear, no rips or tears

I think there are a few other little surprises too, I've probably forgotten some stuff.

The car is heaps fun to drive, it goes well too and is a bit hairy in the wet. The diff is really tight and locks pretty easily!

Here are a couple of pics. Let me know what you think... :D
