Hi Barry.

So does that mean that these pieces are not fully leather, but rather cloth with leather surround? Now I'm really confused :^)

Thanks.

I am looking to replace my two front door panels because the last knucklehead who owned the car cut holes for speakers in the current ones. Anyway, while perusing my shiny new Mobile Tradition parts CD (thanks Matt), I came across the following (in addition to the stock vinyl pieces):

51 41 2 231 447 Door lining leather left (natur)
51 41 2 231 448 Door lining leather right (natur)
51 41 2 231 481 Door pocket left (natur M sport)
51 41 2 231 482 Door pocket right (natur M sport)

I thought the E30 door panels only came in vinyl. Will these leather panels fit in place of the ugly vinyl ones? And what about the door pockets? What earns these the "M sport" designation?

Thanks and take care.

They earn the M sport designation with M stripe patterns on cloth and the outside surround being leather.


I'm saying only the M sport door panels are cloth with the leather surround.


I'm sorry I don't remember his name, but I think it was the asian fellow that had the cool black ///M3 shirt on. he has a whit M3 (90 I think) and he has EVO II spoilers E36 M3 mirrors, grey interior, BBS RC or RK (I can never remember the difference) very nice guy, he was parked furthes away from all the other M3's, close to where they had the award part.

from what I remember is that where the cheap stiching is on our current door's it is cloth with BMW motorsport as a stripe pattern in a downwar diagonal let me try and draw this (wont look very good)
