Nice! Looks like prices for new door handles are WAAAY cheaper than the latch mechanism, too. Like, ~$160 vs. over $700...

Yeah, I watched this video last night. It's very helpful. So with replacing the door handle assembly, can the lock barrel be transferred to the replacement part, or do I have to deal with getting a...

That's an absolutely beautiful color combo, and in excellent condition. I wouldn't part with it, either.

I don't think anyone makes replacement floor pans for the E36. Although they are really old cars by now, they are not old enough or sought after enough to incentivize companies to tool up and create...

They will not work because they are a different diameter. The only way you could use them is if you also replaced the strut, strut mount, and lower control arm bushings to match what the '95 M3 used.
