Once upon a time it had vaders. I know this because I found the listing for it when it was sold by one of the POs in like 2009. I believe the guy who had it before me or before him took the vaders out for his other e36 m3.

Either way, I like evo recaros a little more than vaders, and I paid about $600 all in with the custom brackets and the seats. So no harm, no foul.

I almost bought one of those instead. Would love to get one and do an LS swap.

May still. Good luck with yours!

Although looking back it looks like I'm wrong about it being a Lux pack anyways. I can't tell if the skirts are twisties or not from the photos, but none of the other stuff I mentioned is there anyways.

lol oh yeah, the poofy door cards remind me of Seinfeld's puffy shirt.

The recaros will probably last longer too, the vaders that came with my car are falling apart.
What are you going to do about the interior? Chrome door pulls sound funky to me haha

I like the ZHP. It looks good and feels solid. It sits low which I find is great for backhand shifting to 4th. I recently went back to a new stock knob for a few months and didn't like how light, hollow, and tall it felt.
