1996 BMW M3

 

 

Another car for the stable, a 1996 BMW M3.  Purchased from a BMW Club member, the car was in very nice condition given the age.  Primary use will be a Summer car for my son as well as a weekend auto crosser.  

 

Car started to sound a bit loud and found a crack in the header manifold.  Thought about welding them, but new ones were available.

The car's only problem was the Vader seats.  Pretty worn out with ripped leather and missing foam.  I searched all over for a re upholstery Kit with no luck.  The various covers available just didn't do any justice to these great seats including the Wet Okie which looks down right strange.  Finally found this company who had the patterns and gave it a shot.  Click on the before or after picture for the full project.
