Within a month. I'm going to get the money figured out this weekend or next weekend and start seriously looking after that.

When I get it we're all going to have to meet up

I hear that. Well you know I've been looking around for a while, but just to kinda get an idea of prices based of condition. Pretty much got my mind set already. The time will come

The only way I would have gone OBD2 is if it were a 98.5 or 99 (three spoke wheel ftw)

I would say no to the lux if I were to do it again however

I would consider a 99 too. Anything other than that isn't worth it to me.

What's wrong with the lux though? Weren't you really happy with it?

Well, the whole fact that it was ordered with the lux means it has normal three series seats, normal side skirts, fugly front bumper, fugly wood trim, and an additional 3k on the sticker price (new). I'm not sure what BMW was thinking with the lux package, I don't mind the seats or no wing for now, but all other lux items will be changed soon. IDK, I probably should have been more patient, but the price was just too good for mine.

So is that why you don't have the twist skirts. I've never known why some M's don't have them.

It's not like any of those items are a big deal. A nice interior is going to jack up the price of a used car alot anyways. When I look I really don't car about the seats. I'll probably be swapping them out anyways.

That is how I was, since mine is in such good shape, i should be able to sell it off and offset the cost of whatever I may find to replace it. (Hurricane or Rain cloth?)

The hurricane is the coolest thing ever. Only the seats though. The door panels are funky looking when they have it.

What the hell is rain cloth?

Oh. So kinda like a funky hurricane with different designs. Idk. The hurricane has also hit me as awesome. Would have to see a full interior pic of the other one you said. I've never even heard of it before

I think it was a Euro only cloth, I'm having trouble finding a pic now. I really like the dark hurricane with red motorsport belts

love at first sight. I'd be scared to sit in it at that price though.

You could get a whole M3 for that price... I can't ever justify spending that much on seats, even if they are really sexy like those.

Gas wont jump, commodities futures for oil are WAY down. The longer you wait the cheaper it is right now, should continue for a while!
