Congrats.
I watch pretty much every online classifieds that I can. All of these parts have come from eBay, forums like this one, or Facebook groups. You'd be amazed at the volume of new old stock parts still floating around if you look. For example, I also found an original M3 LTW/GT front splitter. I have it installed, just haven't had time to take pics.

One thing I really want but haven't been able to find are original M3 Motorsport seat belts in red. If anyone sees any for sale, please share.

Jferrante on the forum has a set that he might be willing to part with for the right price. He has his car for sale (95 hellrot /cloth) in the classifieds.

He also has a hook for parts in Europe, I think he can get you most things if you have the $$$.

Long time lurker and finally able to afford a project car. This gives me inspiration.

What did it cost to re-do the headliner? Looks very nice!

The front tray and splitters are still available new from BMW. The tray is cheap too.

I need rear motorsport belts. They are available again but BMW jacked the price up to 375 each.

Bray do you know anything about wait times for the splitter? Last I checked it's on back order until about september.

Covering the pillars, the sunroof panel, and the headliner panel was only ~$400, but the removal and reinstallation was a bear so the total cost was over $1k.

That's pretty spendy, but the results look nice. Thanks for the info

That included completely removing the sunroof cassette, removing the cloth panel on the sunroof, and then reinstalling it all. 5 hours at local shop rates is about right.
