The push button looks great, how much did it run for...

Also, please dont get mad at me or think I am hating, but your interior would look so much nicer without that steering wheel man

What exactly does the babyseat vent do? It'd be funny if it were an air-freshener that smelled like baby-poop! lol

Nice...

Very nice...I'm getting a start button again, I had it on my ex-M3 and now I'm getting it again...but I'm going with the z8 start button.

The starter button cost about $70.

I'm used to the smaller steering wheel now and I still like it. The only steering wheel I might buy is the "M" with the CF add-on.

Looks great! Not something I would do, but nifty none the less. That's right, I said "nifty"...

like ac325 said...it's a cell phone holder and it's not a baby sit, it's a sport sit, with the four point seat belt.

Hey sam - nice interior (though I do agree with GarettF about that airbag thing)!

Where did you get that automatic carbon fiber shifter knob?

I put a carbion fiber interior kit in my old '95 M3, which is going to my little sister, and I thought the shifter would look nice with it!

btw - and this may sound stupid, but I don't have any experience with pushbutton starters whatsoever - do you still need a key to start the car??

I like your strobes. Those are tight. Just be careful with those colors. I am pretty sure that I started the whole strobe trend, since I had Wheelen strobes on my Mustang about 7 years ago already......

The CF knob is actually a manual knob....it will fit in manuals and E46's with tiptronic transmissions...it won't fit in regular autos.

Yes...you still need the key...but I'm sure there is a way to bypass that. I don't know if you want to though...it would bypass your immobilzer which means it would be easy to hotwire your car.
