      Okey doke, here's my spec.
      1989 Cecotto, Hartge 7.5" (f) 8.5"x16 (r) Type A wheels, 225/45/16 all round, Koni Shocks and springs (on car when I got it so I don't know rates), Supersprint centre section with Scorpion back-box, full leather (heated fronts), Sparco strut brace, Momo Corse 320mm steering wheel, AC Schnitzer pedals and gearknob.

      Engine custom re-mapped by Bexley Motor Works, dyno'd at 210.4 bhp/ 181 lbft torque. (standard power should be 215bhp but they all seem to be down on that, pre re-map it was doing 198 bhp! :sosad:

      So as you can see no major mods as such, wouldn't mind going for Leda coilovers in the future along with Schrick cams but I think that is a long way off as money is tight!

              Kick ass.. Cecotto edition. Unfortunately, we Americans only get one version, but i already butchered mine anyway.

              Nice car, glad to see it in its natural habitat.. the track!:p

                  One of the special editions that the lad's across the pond got. I think there was the Cecotto, Europa Meister, Ravaglia, Cabrio, EVO II, Sport Evo, and some others that Italy and South Africa have.

                      If we had decent roads in the UK I would love to have a set of 18's like yours Rob. Also if we didn't have a nation of blind pensioners and people without any regard for other peoples property I would have a set of those Group A mirrors as well, unfortunately I need to be able to see behind me too much to warrant them down in the over-crowded south-east of the UK.:sosad:

                      Thanks for the positive comments guys!

                        He used to drive a "Fina" DTM M3.

                        BMW "M" division produced a few rare "Cecotto" edition E30 M3's ,only for European markets. They had a plaque inside the car with Cecotto signature.


                        Here is a DTM M3 driven by Johnny Cecotto.



                        Here is a pic of a "Cecotto" M3. Notice the EVO II spoilers and different wheels.



                        Here is the plaque found in the car.

                        The FINA-car was raced by a fellow BMW Sport Clubmember of mine, a couple of years ago. The sound of that car is so fantastic you cant belive it. He nowadays got a Z3 with a 1500cc BMW F1 egine, that is capable of putting out over 1400hp!!! I will se if I got some pics here anywhere.

                            Where is the car now?
                            This is the car after it was restored to its original, it was sold to England if I'm not mistaken..

                              Z3 pics are up:

                              http://www.slipers.net/temp/z3/ (5 pages)

                              They are not modem friendly as I was too lazy too compress them...

                              They will be up a couple of weeks so save them if you want to keep them
                              M3 Sold :(
