Its the whole interior, and the owner says that it may be the only one that made it to the states. Plus it has the ltw carbon fiber trim and motorsport belts. I am so temped to whip out the visa on that its not even funny

It sold back in March.

Either way, while I love the uniqueness of it, I'd take a clean lux interior any day. Sport seats are about 300,000 times more comfortable than vaders too.

But the lux seats just scream "I'm a 328i" and cloth would be so much better than leather that is always cracking.

(BTW I wasn't talking about that specific interior, but looking back I guess it sounded that way)

I prefer cloth interior over leather anyday... Leather in the summer is horrible...

It's not nearly worth that much.

Full motorsport (hurricane or alcantara) only sell for around 2k. I looked at one once. Trust me.

Im pretty sure if you whip out 1.5k to 2k in cash he would take the cash and even do the interior swap for u lol.... Remember that money talks!!! And in every language too!!!!!

miss my e32 sometimes...mostly the m70, but just became a money pit. i could get a much nicer condition one for less than what i would have needed to put into it. plus it seems everyone wants an e38...

Replaced my valve cover gasket and spark plugs today. Overall a pretty simple job, I read through the write up on pelican and doug's domain before starting and didn't have any problems.

For spark plugs, I went with NGKs. The old ones that I removed were NGKs as well, and they said BMW on them, could they have been the original plugs . The car has over 131k on it. I didn't notice any improved response or better gas mileage in the 120+ miles I drove since the change. Maybe those were just some really good plugs.

Today on my Bimmer i had my tranny replaced i just picked it up and it feels so good... And the mechanic had told me 800 flat and when i go pick up the car he said 1300...

I said but u said 800... He said no 800 in parts and 500 labor... Now idk what to do... So i pulled on my keys and said here is a 1994 ford mustang convertible immaculate interior and exterior only problem is that clutch is stiff and engine has a BHG... He said ok... So i keep my 1300 but loose my stang :-(

It was gonna be my project after the bimmer...

But this is what i gave the mech...


And yea thats my wife and my baby!!!!

Sure, we can swap yours out. It took me 2 hours to do my gasket and plugs, with a couple breaks in there. You buy the gasket and then we will have to find a weekend when I am actually in Rochester. I am in Jamestown now working full-time, but I am back in Rochester most weekends.

IIRC, you have some more pressing suspension bits to buy before doing our valve cover gasket though...

Also, I am probably going to get a all aluminum radiator here shortly if you want to help me install it. And I need to start working on the front bumper and lip I have chilling in my basement haven't had a chance to touch those yet.
