Nikdev and his 360 Gl....

Post by Nikdev » 09 Oct 2006 07:53 pm

Hello

I am a guy from Norway, just bought this 86`360 GL because i needed a second car and a fun car for the winter
(I also have a Porsche 924 but it is not reliable..)

Bought this 360 from a old lady, total mileage was 69000KM...

The car is is pretty good shape:

Nice mileage:

I really like the German\ Old school style =Slammed with nice wheels..
I have bought wheels.... (13x8)
I hope you can help me with getting the car low enough, Coilovers?

I hope you like what i am doing, and sorry for my bad English

its strange for a 360 - it has the black window trims, but the chrome windscreen plates..

That's quite usual combination in Finland also. We have same in our GL too. :P http://koti.mbnet.fi/mtn/images/autot/G ... viisto.jpg Rear and front trims are chrome but window trims are black.

I think that most GL's have that combination in here.

Very nice wheels btw!

Yep..
The typical rota wheels have high offset (like +38\40) but Rb`s are made as an limited production...
Not many original cars who can swallow +04 offset, but the 360 has no problem :o
