I've heard of this legend called a 'finished car'.

Yet to spot the old girl though.

Does it have an allen screw at the bottom aluminum looking part to secure the knob? Why I asked is I had bought a stock looking weighted one from Bimmerworld two years ago, but it doesn't have the allen screw to hold it...so sometimes going from third to second can lift the knob...not a pleasant experience for aggressive driving.

It's doesn't have screws. In my experience our shift knobs only pop off if they are really old and the inside is brittle or broken. When I swap out my fresh ZHP and M3 knobs it takes so much effort to remove them it's unreal. Sometimes I give up and have to try another day.

Thank you Sammy for following up...if that's the case also with the ZHP, I am suspecting is the one I have the weighted portion not sitting at the bottom of the slot on the stick.

Always a ton of fun buying cars out of state and driving them back, did it with my first and third E36 M3's. Entertaining thread so far, keep up the progress!

Bravery should be celebrated! I'm glad it's working out. How're you finding the recaros? Do they sit lower than standard leather seats?

I LOVE the recaros. Have had them in a few cars and always loved them.

Height-wise I didn't notice too much of a change. Possibly because I think the old seats were pitched a bit backward while these are more level. Straight up and down, these may actually be higher, but not by much or in a bad way IMO.

How close do those Recaros come to the B-pillar when you slide them back? I've been considering those seats, but the B-pillar in the sedan is a limiting factor when it comes to aftermarket seat options.

I will say they are a little wide. It does not hit, but the side bolster is a few millimeters from the door/pillar. Cannot adjust the seats tilt without opening the door

Got this wheel from a 2000 M5 off of a buddy but it turns out it won't work on the e36. Damn single stage airbags.

If anyone is interested in one of these or knows someone who may be, please hit me up!

Thing is mint.
