    Interior is in, minus my new dash, euro clock, gauge cluster, and stereo. The cluster will *have* to go in soon.

      Whoa! that is a wonderful looking set of sport seats. Matching rear seats or no?

        Unfortunately, no. The rear is pretty half assed at the moment- they're my sedan seats that I had dyed black a while ago. Doesn't look bad, matches the door cards well but I plan on reupholstering the rear coupe seats with the same material as the sport seats.

        If you were wondering, I had bought a kit from Stitchedwheels here on r3v and used it to reupholster some really tattered M3 seats I found on Craigslist. A lot of work, but it was for sure worth it.

              Oil/ trans fluid filled, no leaks so far. UUC Short throw shifter, all new bushings, DSSR, shift carrier etc installed. Turns out I have the wrong wiring harness, will get new one soon, but in the meantime I still have a lot of stuff to put in.

                      This thing will 100% get long tube headers. Probably very shortly after I smog it. My 323i had a custom exhaust from the header collector back, so I'll probably bolt that on for now and fit the headers later.

                            YES! I cant wait. How much longer do you think it will be until its running?

                              Melber Mahle 15x7 et12 (I believe E21 fitment?) wrapped in 205/50s. Mahle's were special order wheels that Mercedes and BMWs could come with, made by BBS or Melber, so.. they're not reps. More like pre-weaves

                              I should be getting the wiring harness in two days, need to put in the radiator, power steering, the gauge cluster, the exhaust, and wire it all up. I think turning it over this weekend is a definite possibility.
