It’s been months since we first started working on our E36 BMW 325i project car and the transformation so far has been night and day.

This time around we focused on the interior and it was clear what needed to be done; getting a new set of floor mats. There’s nothing like having all original items but the floor mats have shown clear signs of aging after some 27 years in use. These mats have never been changed ever since they left the factory with the car.
