totally worth having one, my hat would buffer in the wind at 65+ speeds without it. Of course on the freeway you would want your windows up. On the streets it holds well without windows up.

Okay, while we're sharing. July 15 will be one year since I got it out of a corn field and put a new motor in. It only took me 9 months to get running like it should but the pain was worth it. It's the most fun of any car I've owned-and there have been a few. It's got both the motor and the car have 90K miles, it's an '04.

Agreed. I share an interior an exterior color with you, I get a lot of attention with that combination.

I hope to not side track the conversation thread but my top needs to be dyed, can anyone recommend a product?

Looks like they are style 135 BMW wheels. Usually offset, 8" front and 8 1/2" rear x 18 inch. 225 x 40 front and 255 x 35 rear. Will fit E46 models 325 and 330 no problem. Have them on my 330 Cic . Tyres are pricey. I use Pirelli P Zero front and rear.

17 years old. 124k. Few dings, but I love the steel blue with the navy top (and the 5 speed of course).

I think our cars look similar but I don't think they are the same colors. Your M looks carbon black and maybe cinnamon. My ZHP is jet black and natural brown. Same contrasting scheme though which I think looks great.
