  • My E30 M3 - 1 week to go.

    The story so far.

    Had the extractors fitted finally and started it for the very first time. Had a bit of a drive but not enough to gauge it. Pulls strong from 3500 rpm. Should be with me in 1 week.

    Here are some new pics.

        Had your seats been re-upolstered, they look brand new?

                      Carpet was custom done here in Asustralia. From memory I think they are about $300AUD.

                      We had custom headers made for it. They were then ceramic coated. They kind of wrap around the new steering rack.

                      Sorry about that Adam. I was away with work when they were finished and got back that night. They were already installed when I raced over there the next morning. I will get some pics of them actually installed when I can.



                      Here is a small vid (3.21mb) of the first time we turned they key on the car. This vehicle has not been started in the last 8 or so weeks since the cocnversion began. So I was really happy that it kicked over first turn and blew no smoke. Sounds better if you have 5.1 speaker set up. I will get a better quality sound of the exhaust as soon as possible.
