Looks really good. You're a few steps ahead of me. But I know what your feeling getting all this stuff done!

Daytona - thumbs up! The BEST part of a project (for me)..... is when everything is new and painted..... and you are bolting on the goodies to a freshly painted platform. Those seats/door cards/painted calipers/new steering wheel are just staring at me daily.... say "take me for a spin"!

Those seats really do look awesome! If I didn't have Modena, i'd order the Autoberry covers.

Im interested in the three spoke non air bag steering wheel if you still have it PM me.

Well after many weeks.... I picked up my car tonight. What an ordeal, but I made it home.

The pics won't look much different than before.... but much better in person, and I am afflicated with OCD... at the highest levels.

I p/u the keys and battery is dead..... eventually jump start it...... and car runs really really strange..... no throttle response...... surging at part throttle...... thinking either bad gas..... or '''' perhaps joe sander decided to pull a money shift on me".....

Nursed it home in rush hour traffic with no ac.... due to stalling issues....... and CEL.

Fortunately I have my handy $180 Ebay BMW diagnostic laptop/software.. which quickly showed the MASS AIR METER as the fault. I unplugged it while running and no diff. Also tried a last ditch spray with CRC elec cleaner... but no dice. Even after reset code it came back.

So new one on order from pelican parts, hopefully cures my ills.... then off to install the nice bits.
