Where did you find new skins? Mine are beat to hell as well. I heard you can swap out the bolsters, but sport seats are hard find in a junk yard.

Sportseats are almost impossible to find in a junk yard lol.

I'm getting them off a friend, I have no idea where he got them from though haha.

I'm pretty sure you can still order bolsters for the seats. I really need to either fill the hole, or just pay up and buy a new one

Cool I've had mine for 3 weeks. May I ask how much did you pay for it? How many miles? As you can see mine is in need of a paint job.

I paid $1000 for mine, and I don't know how many miles are on it because the speedometer is broken. Mine needs paint too. I'm determined to get it right!

My interior is a 7 out of 10. Front seats need attention, back seat is perfect. Door panels are perfect. Dashboard is perfect. Headliner is not sagging, but looks 22 years old. I'm going to get the headliner redone, and start with some leatherique on the seats and try to restore them myself.

Jealous! those rims and 3 piece Acs type I and typeII are by far my favorite rims on an e34. Lets see them on the car!

Runs great, but I want to get it on a Dyno and fine tune it a bit more to even out a few minor hiccups. Once that happens I will go buy a GOPRO and shoot some video!

Well, they are not on the car yet as I have only received two of them so far. The other two are held up in US Customs (coming from Europe). Here's a sneak peek!

Hahaha it basically is, it has 70k miles on the clock. Along with that, it's been maintained at BMW all of its life. This car has so much torque you don't even need to shift down to pass someone on the highway. It's the ultimate BMW IMO.
