Seats are in incredible condition for the mileage. I've seen 50k mile seats that look worse!

Not the original seats, unsure of the mileage on these. They look so good because Bray did a thorough cleaning on them before install

Nice work - your car looks great!!

What approach are you planning on taking with the RACP reinforcement?

We will probably do both options. I'll be doing all the work.

First mod for the M3





With that being said, I have a few black M3 seats in varying condition for sale. Would post in the FS section but don't meet the minimum requirements yet.

The parts for the rear subframe reinforcement were delivered the other day. Debating on whether I should replace a few components in the rear while we're under there.

Finally got an Alcantara wrapped steering wheel. Coby 9002 w/ tri-color stitching steering wheel, 9002 w/ black stitching handbrake boot, and OE CSL hand brake. Just ordered an OE Alcantara shift boot to have everything looking nice and fresh.



Trunk mat was just delivered.







A few pics with my friends e36 m3.







Any tips from other owners with Alcantara steering wheels on how to keep the wheel looking nice?

Nice M, OP. The alcantara wheel looks amazing, especially with all the other alcantara parts.

Quick question, are those zip ties holding the intake manifold on the throttle bodies? Couldn't help but notice in the engine bay shot.
