Friend just picked up this '97 for $7500. 80K miles. Only down side is it's an auto tranny, but an acquaintance has a 5 spd conversion kit just laying around.

Nice find. Looks to be in minty condition. Also nice to have connections that shares the same hobby.

Heavens no! Though I have been dreaming of swapping in heated E46 sport seats... Been following joeys thread on that.

It's two different cars, though hard to see. Didn't realize that.

The tan is from the 318 vert (sold) and dove is current 328.

The led lighting was one of the order things I did to the car. I remember because I was up till 4am soldering and routing wires with my best buddy. Totally worth it, but my passenger floorboard light has gone out and I need to investigate that...
