        Finally - some small progress

        Life continues to get in the way of the major refurb of my Touring, but I made some small progress recently. Since there is no "What have you done to your Touring today" thread, I'll post here. Not sure I'll ever get around to starting a real build thread.

        Driver seat was trashed and didn't match the rest of the interior. Here is a picture of the nasty cushions after I took them out.



        Thanks to great members here on r3v, I was able to source really nice cushions (all the way from Canada!). Jeffnhiscars (aka Shock King) provided the new seat shocks for the mechanical refresh. Here's the finished product.



        Sourced an MTech 1 wheel from the UK. Leather was trashed, so Stitched Wheels (search the r3v classifieds) recovered it. I added a new M color piece and now it looks great. Here it is on the car.

                  It's alright, I am swapping an M42 into it though.

                    ebay.co.uk or Ivo Christov, or the WTB section here. While I have several cargo covers that I will sell I'd encourage you to check the first two sources before asking the third/fourth.

                    Cool, that should be a nice fit for the touring. Plan to keep the 4.27 (which should be your current differential ratio), go 4.1 or maybe 4.44?

                    Oh, fueling pictures? How about the green nozzle? I miss my 324td.

                        I have had good luck with a uk based breaker that advertises here as Sskoda. His web site is willswheels.co.uk. In addition to specific items listed on ebay.co.uk, I've also had good luck contacting breakers that will list a car that they are breaking. Also bought some parts from a breaker that I found on e30owners.com.

                        I have also found that parts listed as NLA on realOEM, at US dealers and Miximillian are sometimes still available in Europe. My favorite source for new BMW parts from Europe is Schmeidmann. I just copy the part # from realOEM and paste it in the parts search field at Schmeidmann's site. If it lists the part in the search results, they can get it new.

                          I am a 318i so no diesel for me. The m42 is going to be easy and cheap for me. I am going to 4.10. Better highway gearing. 4.27 is stupid low and almost impracticable. I am not building a race car so 4.44 is out of the question.
