This year I will be looking to add a limited slip diff and ESS T2 to my ride. Should take this already well modded car to another level I'm thinking...

There's still more to do such as refreshing my front control arms, FCAB/RTABs, GUIBO/Centerline Bearing, rear wheel bearings, steering wheel GUIBO.....possibly more...

Jon,

If I get the ESS TS2 you will be one of the first to see it because I'll be installing it locally to your location. Thanks for the bump bro

Jon, at a very trusted friend's place. He's installed the TS2 kit before and had offered to do this for me when I get mine...

For now my new Coby black alcantara/imola stitching steering wheel...







Earlier at post#149 I had posted pictures during daylight. These were taken last night after it had gotten dark outside. I waned to use the lighting from inside the car for a different effect.

Had this wheel mounted almost 4 months now and the alcantara on the steering wheel still feels as soft as the day I got it. Quality on this wheel is spot on....again, if anyone is on the fence about doing this... do it!

Today I took out my OE arm rest in favor of an ///M black Nappa Leather arm rest Since the rest of my ZHP is alcantara/cloth I like how well the new arm rest blends with the car Other than that, not much else going on here...

You're right. I got to get off my butt and get them installed. I will be working on them as soon as I get done with my college class (3 weeks to go). It's been occupying most of my time regarding getting my carbon fiber engine covers prepped and installed. I will get on them soon

Thanks guys. As previously mentioned I also have carbon fiber engine covers for my ZHP but my college classes have been getting in the way of me refinishing them so I can reinstall them over the spring. Unfortunately, I still have a few weeks left so I will be doing this before getting to those engine covers but I will get to them

There will be more in store for my "daily" ZHP

Thanks!
There is no part number for an illuminated 6-speed ZHP shift knob but you can get an F10 ///M5 illuminated shift knob which looks 99.9% close to the ZHP shift knob. This is the knob I now have installed in my ///M. I think you will be happy with it.

Here is p/n: 25112284205

Here is what this shift knob looks like









I like it

Last night my best friend dropped off his OE ///M seats in my garage so that I can begin the next immediate ZHP project.... retrofitting lumbar and side bolster adjustment into my ZHP seats.

Appreciate guys! I won't be mounting ///M seats into the ZHP, rather... I will take out the lumbar/side bolster equipment from the old set of ///M seats and retrofit them into my alcantara sedan seats. There will be pics detailing the process as I want to reuse my sedan alcantara seats.

The seats from my best friend is actually replacing the worn ///M seats I have inside my ///M...

Jon, where did you get your shift knob from? Pictured above is the shift knob I put in my ///M (the F10 ///M5 shift knob). The one I have in my ZHP came from deadlysyns at M3Forum.net. He modded the ZHP shift knob so it was lit. Yes that shift knob is really bright

Mine is an OEM ///M 5 speed illuminated shift knob. But it's not as bright as yours.
