    Looks like a very clean car. I love the grey leather interior as well.

Very jealous and I've called dibs on this in case he gets crazy and goes back to a s2000.

    Can't wait to see where you take her over the next couple years. Like that you are stressing maintenance before upgrades. Keep up the good work.
    Thanks for all the help from acquiring her to turning a few wrenches here and there, but more so for answering my endless stream of questions early on. It has definitely been fun.

    Just a few minutes away. Let me know next time you are back down this way.

    Thanks Levent! I was hoping to bring her up to G-Fest, but wasn't able to make it. Hopefully next year.

    OP.. consider doing suspension bushings (CABs RTABs and subframe bushings) and driveline mounts next. a full overhaul of those major areas with OEM rubber should be less than $300 and supposedly works wonders! and may I recommend a z3 2.8 shifter and new shifter bushings? again, another low-buck mod that really improves the driving experience.

    I love that recaro seat too.. lucky kid!
    I also really like the silver on the grey interior. Silver on Cardinal would be sweeter, but I like the silver on grey over silver on black.

    RTAB = Rear Trailing Arm Bushings???

    The Z3 1.9 shifter and bushings is also on the short list.

    I've seen a couple of those Recaro baby seats, they're awesome and supposedly really hard to find.
    This is my first E30. Suspension is on the list, just want to get through the general maintenance/clean up first and foremost.

    In the DC area a couple of store carry the Recaro seats, but I actually bought this one (Recaro ProSport) and the one for my wife's car (Recaro ProRide) on Amazon. Amazon was $70 cheaper than the retail stores, plus free shipping; Amazon Prime FTW. We were Tboned when a lady ran a red light in our X3 when our daughter was 3 months old. Luckily everyone was ok. Who better to make your kids car seat than one of the most trusted racing seat manufactures in the world.

    As part of the deal the following maintenance was done just before I picked her up:
    Replaced diff seals
    Changed Diff and Trans fluid
    Replaced Oil pressure relief valve
    Replaced front lower control arm bushings

    Within 100 miles before I bought the car:
    Replaced timing belt & tensioner (water pump was replaced last time, I would have done both but this was before I was trying to buy the car)
    Replaced rear transmission mounts
    Used Exhaust was also swapped, old one had a few holes in it

    needs less monotone. silver paint, and grey interior looks kinda weird. but other than that looks good.
