  • Factory Interior Options

    I've noticed that very few if any M3's have cloth interiors. Is this "rare"? Was it even an option for USA bound M3's? I've seen some model variants that came with m-cloth seats, but what about regular m's? Perhaps this question is aimed more at the European crowd?

    I searched the Interior Archives and didnt find an actual answer. I *think* all US M3's had leather, was it the same for Euro cars as well?

    TIA,
    Chris

    Hi,

    Euro cars came standard with cloth. Leather interior was an option in Europe.
    US cars came standard with leather, electric windows, electric sunroof, central doorlocks,
    airconditioning, cruisecontrol, heated rearwindow and radio with 8 speakers.
    In Europe this were all options.

    M-cloth came with Cecotto/Ravaglia models and Sport Evo.

      Thank you Carlo!
      So its safe to assume factory cloth interiors are un-common here in the USA?

          With regard to cloth leather options, this brochure shows some options for the M3 (and M5). It's from Daniel's site www.s14.de

              Yeah, in the US, the M models were top of the line. Therefore, they were all pretty much loaded. I don't see why they couldn't just offer a bare bones M3 for less cost and let the buyers customize it as they wish with the factory options. I believe you can do that now with euro-delivery.

                        Hi all

                        Resurrecting this as I couldn't find any other info anywhere. Pls see below pic. I have never seen this in an e30, lest M3. Anyone know if this sort of door card was factory option or aftermarket. Seen it on a car which is for sale in NZ but is a US spec model. Sorry, no VIN.

                          I'm going to say that is custom made. No door pull or map Pocket. I thinuk it looks terrible.
