Send a pic of your door speakers to Bav if you've got a 95. They'll tell you if you can plug and play. Mine (95) were the same as 96, so pnp.

Re: 95m3 owners who want BAV SOUND!

Take a pic of your door (showing speakers) and email it to them. They have kits for some 95s.

Re: Headliner materials?

That's probably the right color. It's def not pure black. Guess I've always thought of anthracite as spec'd on newer cars. It's an exact match on my '95.

It's brutal. I called and the guy knew exactly the stuff right when I said e36m3. Black is BM134. $42/yard about 4 years ago.

Yeah, no. Not a drop and some clears. Arms, links, bushing, strut, shocks, mounts, etc. 20 year old rubber and shot struts feel fine on these cars. But new feels amazing.
