Thank you!

I found the front M3 seats on ebay. Arrived from Watsonville, CA (germanonly). I had to wait 2 months for the ship!
Only the seats were around 800$+shipping. My seats (what you can see on my pics: seats + shipping + duty + back seats + wiring the heating + new leather) cost me all-in-all ~4500$.

That interior looks fantastic. European E46Fanatics always have some great looking custom interiors.

That's a beautiful M3. I don't mind you ripping it apart but DUDE keep the interior. Hope you do the full front coupe headlight conversion... it really changes EVERYTHING (In other words exactly like the E46 M3 Touring concept that BMW put together). On the LSBXi I put together I wouldn't have had it any other way. Good luck with the full conversion. You've got everything you need, just get those hands dirty now.

Sorry, but not for sale! I have to keep the chassis and the full interior. I will dismount only the engine bay, tranny, the suspension and the bumpers. The fenders, mirrors, everything else will stay on the car.
It is the next project. I have to put in it an S62B50 engine with manual tranny. And then it will be for sale!

I will keep the interior, don't worry. Also do the full front conversion!

Now I only fight with the seller, because this car is repaired Cat C (the right side of the car was damaged), but didn't get back the V5 logbook yet. First we have to get the V5, then we can bring the M3 home to Hungary.
It will be hard, but not impossible. Can't wait!!!!!

Bad bits:
- Dirty interior, especially the steering wheel
- Seat heating leds are not working (even the heating???)
- Poor adjusted gaps at the trunk, driver side door, fuel cap door
- Exhaust tips damaged
- Hood paint
- All 4 tires are crap
- Rims should be refurbished

Not big issues, easily can be fixed. I'm afraid a little only from the VIC.

Just curious about your next move. Have you considered making a 318d facelift Coupe to keep on the side? Or will you just sell the M3 shell and 318d drivetrain when you are done? Although a E46 M3 GTR (or Street version) would be even better

It is difficult a bit.
I decided to keep my touring!
I want to find a donor touring instead. It is very cheap in GB. I already found one for 1000GBP, it is a '00 TiAg 330i touring.
http://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-m...ain/1033991613
The only problem, it has no sunroof, so I have to find another one...
After I found a touring donor, I will sell its 30i engine and drivetrain. And all not neccesary parts...
So that's my next move.
And maybe will start a new thread!
