    Kev - did you get a sample yet? I'm curious if we really hit the wall on m-tech fabric, or what?
    well , I know for sure that Cabbie rears seats won't fit in a regular E30.... but never tried the door cards...

    but , you could always just buy the cabbie... take all the pannels off of your car.. put the material from the cabbie on your door cards and then go to your scrap yard and find a panel set.. re sell the car afterwards... lot of work for door cards... and by the way... the door cards are only stappled on..

    As I was stating he is waiting for me to find the cloth, as he no longer has any.

    Yes, I bet you would do well with this - especially if you can get the seam to lay flat the way they bond the vinyl to the fabric on OE ones. I hope your fabric is the correct stuff, is it true there are 2 different background shades on m-tech cloth? I heard there was a light grey, and the darker anthracite color used on the Sport Evo. I've never persued it, but have you ever seen it? I'm not even sure it exists, just read it somewhere.

    cheers.
    Hey man, like I said in the other thread -you aren't going to get OEM panels, save someone crashing a car with these panels. I bought the 2nd to last driver side panel, and I know who got the last one after I told him there was 1 left. There are still 9 passenger side ones, but that's it. Rear panels have been NLA quite some time, and I had a post up for ~10 months before I paid and got a set from a car being converted to a racer.

    I will have some left over m-tech cloth once my interior is done, but I'm getting a growing list of people who want my extra, and I bet the day I tell the 1st guy on my list it's FS, he'll take it.

    Unless Kevin gets that large roll, it's possible maybe BMW is really done with supporting 20 year old interiors. Not trying to create a scare, just thinking out loud.

    Good luck finding cloth, let alone real OEM panels. I consider myself lucky as heck, and I started collecting and putting out ads 2 years ago. I think I'm the last guy who will have a Sport Evo replica interior for anything close to affordable terms. Now when you see good cards, they may fetch an unbelievable amount.
