    I think it would be nice to include the S799 318i M Design convertibles. The option pack is designated E30 INDIVIDUALSERIE 92. There seems to be very little information about these online and I haven't found any official production data. Various non-official sources list anywhere from as low as 25 to several hundred produced. While not sold in the US, there were North American spec models sold in Canada with the M42 engine. The rest of the world got the M40 engine.

    There is information on the different versions made for Europe here: http://www.e30cabrio.se/mdesign.html. That site also has information on the European 325i M Technic models, including S796, S798, and S335.

    Does anyone have an original sterling silver or, for that matter, any S770a cars, with 5speed and heated seats? Canít be too many of those out there.
    There were 17 sterling manuals made. I have one of them and it doesnít have heated seats. Some of the euro cars had extended leather as an option so, it likely didnít come from a 771 car but, it is rare either way!

    My S771 came with heated seats but was automatic.

    Oops typo I meant S771. My question was basically how many S771 full-mtech cars have factory heated seats and 5 speeds, as both features were rarely optioned. I found it on a euro ebay. I've been fortunate to collect spares of most of the S771 leather interior bits.

    Yes, that was a good auction.



    Mine has been sitting in the garage for a bit. Radio and hvac out on the floor. I bought an 89 for a hard top to put on the mtech. I ordered new interior window seals, and a few other items like hvac and ash tray bulbs. Might as well replace them all at the same time. I also cleaned the front and back of my euro weaves. Going to put paint sealant on them and mount the wheels back on the car for summer.



    I have been slowly getting the 89 ready for bring a trailer but, after it comes back this week from getting a timing belt, all I have left if rear shocks and mounts, then a full exterior and interior detail. After I get pictures, the mtech will be the focus again.


    Can't wait to see the '89 on BaT. With all that extra work in her, it should go for a nice price. Pics of your MTech when you get a chance?
