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

They are indeed, I'm surprised anyone noticed. They have since been removed and replaced with proper clips.

Very clean looking car! I like the direction of it, keeping it simple.

OEM CSL Handbrake and Coby 9002 Alcantara handbrake boot.



All fresh Alcantara



Boot fits a little loose, still looks great though.

Just need an Alcantara headliner and M-Texture.

Full set of these, they came from an M3 with something like 60k miles. I'll be looking for a matching rear seat and another Recaro soon. Got a plan for the inserts on the Recaros.







The quest for more Alcantara continues.

Any tips from other owners with Alcantara steering wheels on how to keep the wheel looking nice?
Really loving all the Alcantara bits on your car - I saw some pics you posted on E46Fanatics and just had to come here to compliment on your thread!

Keeping the Alcantara clean, I've found, is as simple as taking a microfiber cloth in warm water to the surfaces every couple of weeks. Not too gentle, but not too hard, and it'll stay cherry. If you do come across any "roughness" in the wheel after use, you can get away with taking a razor to it and removing the frayed bits. I have to say, I'm pretty jealous of your interior!

Thanks for the tips! Lately, I've been using heavily diluted Simple Green and a microfiber to wipe all the Alcantara bits, it seems to help.

Thanks again! I installed the M-Texture door cards in the other day, and It looks even better now

Few small updates..

Installed the M-Texture door panels a few months back. I still have yet to find a matching rear seat, this might take a while :/



Threw the Dinan badge back on, as the letters were etched into the paint already.



Found an almost complete set of Piano Black trim that cleaned up really well with a tiny bit of polishing. I decided to list what I have to put towards a brand new set of Black Cube in the future.





Also fixed the rear bumper sag that has bugged me ever since Bray first bought it.





Only minor updates from now on until I can put money towards more major mods like a CSL trunk, full exhaust, and another Recaro for the passenger side.
