Default Hello from Canada :) Techno Violet M3

Hello everyone just recently purchased a 1999 BMW Techno Violet M3. My very first car was a 1994 318i that my dad bought me as a gift and ever since then the E36 has always been special to me.

Since ownership I have replaced the following:
Diff - Redline, Tranny - Royal Purple, Engine Oil - Shell Rotella T6 as well as new OEM coolant and a Fuel Filter
New OEM Front and Rear Brake pads and rotors and Rear tires
Overhauled the entire cooling system as well as new belts

Parts on the way:
E46 Trunk Lip Spoiler
Front Clear Corners, Side Markers and tail lights ( Not sure if Ill put these on as I do like how the ambers look as still )

I am in the Vancouver Area, looking to pick up some OEM goodies. Specifically looking for an alcantara steering wheel and white Vaders.

Hey man. I know this car well if its the one I'm thinking of. Did you buy it from the island? My friend Nick owned it before the guy you purchased it off of. PM shepott on here for an alcantara wheel. 3 of us Vancouver M3 owners have gotten wheels from him.
Keep the ambers on techno.
Heres my thread that shows a few lighting options throughout. Ambers have remained my favourite.

Ah Nick's car - glad it was rescued from the island.

Does it still have the ACS exhaust? very period correct.

I think there's a set of dove vaders on van CL. They're pretty rough but maybe they would clean up. Decent price anyway. EDIT: they're pretty rough but you can buy new covers. https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/van/...600981696.html

Drag it out to carbs and coffee in west van next week - I'd like to see this car again. There's an M car meet on the 24th at spanish banks too.

Yes I saw those seats! But they are a little to worn for my liking. Yes the ACS exhaust is still on it and is growing on me. I will definitely try and make it out to the next meet in West Van.

The pillarless coupe look on the E36 vert w/ hardtop will never get old. Great looking car!
