  • My consoles just arrived. Check the stitches out against the hand brake stitaches which is an OEM part. What a quality work!

    • Nice work on the consoles. Did you do the dash and door pulls too?

      • Thanks but why would I do the door pulls? I don't think E30 M3 cabrio came like that. I am pretty sure the dash didn't come in leather either.
        I think some of the coupes came with leather dash but I never heard of leather door pulls.

          • Please ignore the seats =]. I'm no M3 convertible expert or anything but the ones I've seen with full leather interior have those leather door panels and what I presume to be leather door pulls as well. I don't know about the dashes, kinda hard to tell but I know they are out there. Don't think they came on any of the Evo cars so...what else?

            • Well, when Greg (my super knowledgeable part guy) and I were searching for parts for my car, we came across leather dash from factory. They were in gray color only and it was for a certain E30 M series but no door pulls though!

              • Also, I am returning the engine emission related parts to stock so I can have the state rep look at the car and give me the sticker necessary to have the car smogged at any smog shop.

                The cone filter is being replaced by an E36 M3 modified stock air box, 19lbs injectors are going back in, E30 purge valve, charcoal canister and related hoses are being added and after I find a 506 ecu and stock chip (no EWS), I'll replace them with my silver 413 ECU and turner chip.
                Basically, everything becomes stock 1995 M3 engine setup so it will pass the inspection.

                • So, does anybody have a pre Jan 1995 ECU ending with 506 numbers that I can buy or even borrow?

                    Rey,

                    The complete leather interior includes:

                    Seats - Front and Rear
                    Door Cards - Front and Rear
                    Door Pulls & Map Pockets
                    Center consoles
                    Leather dash & Suede lined Glove Box
                    A pillars
                    Sunvisors

                    The dash came in leather in Black, Tan or Grey. It was special order complete leather interior through BMW Individual. My friend Mike's car came with a complete leather interior as mentioned above when new - cost over $12K USD.

                    • Wow! $12K in leather!!

                      • I see. Well, I guess my car was not special ordered throught BMW individual to have the leather dash! ;-)
                        I also made a mistake on the door pulls. I thought by door pulls, he meant the exterior door pulls, not the interior. Yes, the interior door pulls are leather and I already have that. I may go for leather dash after engine upgrade.
                        I love to have the leather sun visors but so far nobody can do it.
                        It sound like it is very hard to cover sun visors in leather!

                        Thanks for the info L James

                              • Sorry, I skipped the month. It took 1.5 month until I received the
                                consoles.
