In Reply to: Picked up '98 M3/4 Wednesday! Interior Advice ? posted by SteveM3/4 on February 02, 2001 at 14:37:46:
I am the happy new owner of a '98 M3/4 5 spd, Cosmos/Modena. I can just hear the "yuck, you got the Modena". However, this car checked out strong, tight, unblemished, and rattle-free via pre-purchase exam so I was able to look beyond the Ferrari Pumpkin-color interior. It helped that the price was right for a dealer car and it was well-prepped by them. This is the third car that I have bought through the same sales person, Christal, at VOB BMW in Rockville during the past 3 years and she has been great to work with.
What are my options for swapping out the interior? Late 328i sedan sports seats should do fine, IMO. What about ordering seat covering in either leather or cloth from BMW? (I don't mean the material alone, complete covering presewn, ready to install) Might be able to get it at wholesale or close to. Something rarely seen on US M3's like Anthracite cloth might be cool.
My 330i is for sale, $36k, 4k miles, 5 speed, sports pkg, HK, CD, OBC, Heated Seats, Moonroof, Michelin Pilot Sports.
