Yes I have thought of getting cinnamon interior for it but I've seen only one for sale here in uk (heated) and it was 1100 which is crazy money imo as an extra 200 you could get a full retrim and they'd be like new.
I fitted red leather in my previous estoril blue which I thought looked great and proper individual but with the coupe I wanted something bright, like champagne or lotus white.... I've been looking since I got the car and I can't find anything

This was my previous estoril blue

It's beautiful. And I get the money situation, which is why I suggested neil's DIY, but I do agree that champagne or lotus white would look nice with the color

Thank you
Most of the parts are OEM except for the hood. The splitters and lip were from eBay.

This is true, but I bought the car in 2001 and have been building it since then. It's a lot easier to build a car over the course of 15yrs than to buy an M3 brand new in 2001. Plus I didn't know this was the direction my modding was going to take until it all came together.

2000 323Ci, Fern Green. Had it less than a week.

It's pretty much as it was when delivered. The only changes I'll make are clear indicator lenses to replace amber (this looks good on darker-coloured cars).

and it looked better...

but i always wanted a white one...
