ever since i started modding e39s, i've always wanted to push the envelope...typically e39 modder sticks with the classic lines of mtech this and mtech that...but because of the influx of mtech style goodies, i definitely wanted to push even further. no ones ever really heard of a touring to become a dedicated track car...i know its not the best platform to use...but again, i wanted to be different...so now i'm taking slow step to have arnold become a dedicated track rat!!! =)

enjoy!



whats that i see? let's take a closer look....=P



whaaaa? in a grocery getter????? =P



lol...=P!!!!! UFOs (unindentifed fibrous objects!!!) :D...









just getting ready for mfest iii and specifically for the track :D...

that looks different for sure

i think looks nice and tasteful but maybe same color seat covers would be nice..

and BTW... where did you get the carbon fiber looking wood trim all around the car!? that looks killer and i have been trying to find that actually

lol...told ya it'll be different =P...

as for seat covers...i was thinking of reupholstering the seat inserts to beige, but my intention is to convert the whole interior into black and eventually be stripped down completely...

as for the cf trim...it's my oem trim wrapped in cf fabric that was popularized by euro dyne...but because we're not a sponsor here...i'll recommend to go to jlevi (a bfest sponsor) who also carries the fabric and the wrapping services! =)

Touring or not...it looks like a sweet ride. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

You'll have to let us know the times you post once you take it to the track.

Track rats dont have ceiling mounted lcd panels or interiors at all for that matter :p The whole weight thing. I am intrigued by those VAC seat mounts. Seems like a lot of cost and effort for a simple production piece.

very true :D! hehehehe...but you didn't see the recaro baby seat in the back? =P by the time the kid is grown up...it'll be in sequence with the touring being completely stripped =P...

anyway VAC definitely did it right with these floor mounts...in fact, they weigh heavier than the actual NRG bucket seats. but to get the full potential of its rigidity, i'm waiting on my recaro steel side mounts to get the final touch! =)

Lose the LED rice, and it's not a bad job. Those seats are a lot more fun than the standard seats I'll bet***8230;but suck for road trips :p

My cousin had a set of seats just like that in his e46, and I actually thought they were suprisingly comfortable on my 2.5 hour trip with him. Definately not as comfy as the stocks, but not much worse either...
