I wish, but no its grey interior.

Thanks man, I appreciate it and yes the suspension Variant 2's. Im trying to get the front end dialed end but Im waiting for the new wheel setup to get the front end down. I do not want to go too low rolling on the 17inch stockies due to a bad experience in my Avant and oilpan.

I first want to put a navigation system I found that fits right up where the flip top compartment is. Then New Tires and chrome exhaust tips. I want to try and keep it as BMW as possible.

That sounds like a plan and it should come out looking great. Stoked to see the results. Where did you find the Navigation and is it direct OEM? I was also considering that as well but price wise they are a arm and a leg and Id much rather other mods lol

I have the link at home. I will post it later for you to take a look at. Youre right about the cost though. It is like $500 but it will look like it came with the car and it also is capable of utilizing the steering wheel controls as well as an optional backup camera. It also plays DVDs.

Yes, I have noticed that. It will do it every once in while but its on a rare occasion. Usually shifts like butter.

I just bought a set of 19" style 191 M sport wheels for summer and found a matching set of P Zero's from another user on the forum that land here Thursday. Hoping to get them on this Friday and am painting the rusty calipers black with G2 while I'm in there.

Prob will keep the 112's and throw blizzaks on in the winter.

I love the old school Beetles but he wants way too much for it. My brother used to have one and my father's first car was a Red one. I love the way they drive and sound. One of the best cars ever built.
