Thanks! I'm trying to find stuff to do daily but I also don't want to put out junk content just to put it out. Unfortunately, I think that's how YT has to be done.

Wrong door sills for an M3 if you can still exchange them, M3 ones say "M3" whereas the generic motorsport ones just have the "M" - not sure if you'll care but I thought I'd point it out.

I didn't think convertible door panels would fit a coupe but apparently they do so good score.
Yeah, it seems a lot of people have interest in that head unit. I know nothing about audio but I wanted something that looked semi "factory". I'll get the interior put back together so I can install that HU!

Ah, I didn't know that about the door sills. Thanks for pointing that out! I'm sure I'll make a ton of mistakes like that.

I'm new-ish to the BMW world so I don't know all the intricacies of what is proper for what year, etc. But, I'm learning a ton!

Honestly, I didn't even think about vert door panels NOT fitting, lol! I'd be so bummed out if they didn't.

Interesting! TBH, I just picked the ones I liked the best, lol. Btw, love your ride...one of the many E36's I use for inspiration from this forum!

This version would be the more correct "M3" version over the M-Sport version Jordan got. Both look nice though... but the "M-Sport" line is a lesser branding.

Man, I'm doing my best not to reach out to you about every single part I buy for this to ask if it's correct or not, haha! I bug you enough as it is!

Looks terrible in that ^ close up pic.
Def not real carbon but it still looks good in person IMO. But if you're looking for real carbon weave and you get these, you will be disappointed for sure.

Man, I had no idea about the heater core issue you mentioned. I really hope that's not the case! Once I get the center console put back together, I'll do an install video on this as it is definitely something a lot of guys have questions about. Unfortunately, I'm definitely NOT the guy to answer those questions since I have little to no audio experience and very little E36 experience. BUT...i'll get it on camera and hopefully learn a few things!

Cheers all!

Mannn...So I just did door seals, door sill trim and door sill strip. If you want to check that out:

I think next will be putting the interior back together then trying to put the Continental head unit in since a lot of people have been asking about that.

Either that or possibly attempting to glue the rear inserts into the panels that I had redone.

There definitely isn't a shortage of things to do, lol!

Cheers
