Yep - super clean staggered DSIIs have always been my favorite wheel for this car.

Nice pick up, Eric! I drove an auto once. Not bad for around town.

How bad are the DS2's? I've been looking to get another set so I can square the summer & winter tires and avoid mounting and balancing fees twice a year.

I'm sure shipping would be a pain, but nothing ever comes up for sale out here. Email me if you'd consider shipping them.

Jk, nice pickup OP! Looks like a nice example. Also, I love DS2. Like a 10 spoke LTW.

LOL! Still have mine!

Nice pick up OP. Leave the tranny is sport mode. It's a habit for me to lock the doors and flip it into sport mode when I start the car. The car is sluggish otherwise (resists shifting out of a higher gear), once I starting doing that, it woke up the car a lot, gas mileage goes down a touch, but the car picks the right gear. I noticed it when I was trying to pass on the freeway. It would stay in the higher gear and I would eventually pass. With sport mode, it down shifts when you give it a little more gas. It makes driving in traffic, MUCH easier (and safer) since you can actually get around someone. Just my observation

Mine

Thanks guys.
abcurran, you don't want these. Future pics will tell you why. They are rashed pretty bad.

I put in the 'service seat' before going for smog. It always seems to happen. The biggest guy at the shop with super-greasy pants always runs over and crashes onto the driver seat bolster. I can't stand watching it anymore so I have this spare cushion until smog and alignments are done. Then I put in the good stuff.

I bought this car prior to seeing the smog test pass. That's frowned upon here in California. I've never taken that risk before but the car had a perfect California smog history. It passed easily.

I HATE this. Good work around.

Dude, the ONE time I really asked the tire shop to be extremely careful and clean with my interior the guy's pants got wet from the rain. Black wet smear all over the seat and bolsters. P I S S E D !

T-shirt trick is something I'm going to keep in mind. Otherwise, it's getting a Wurth mechanic's seat cover.

Man, I hate that! I had something similar happen when I had my trunk lid repainted (to remove spoiler). Someone scratched my driver's seat pretty bad. The paint work was definitely well done, but they scratched my seat, I think they may have knicked the smallest spec on my steering wheel, and they put my M3 badge on incorrectly (sits too far towards the center of the car).

In retrospect, I should have but a seat cover on prior to dropping off the car and asked them to leave the new M3 badge off so I could do it myself. The scratch in the driver's side left bolster pisses me off every time I climb into the car.

I've got new Sachs OEM struts and shocks in stock so I decided to install the rear shocks and RSMs (rear shock mounts) this afternoon. 117,000 miles is enough on original shocks and struts so I'm sure they are toast. One of the RSMs was shot and Z3 plates are basically standard anymore. It gave me a chance to wash out the trunk and scrub the rear carpet with soap and water.
