to Teh WERKZ!

PS - If your stock seats are leather and are mint, why would you swap them for Sparco's etc? The weight issue isn't enough and BMW made this car with nice seats. My own race shop commented long ago on my inquiry on this same issue. He has an older Porche where he swapped te seats for Sparcos, but the stock seats were already fried is why.

Where are you from sir? Always glad to have another Z3 in teh Werkz.

It seems as though it will be awesome when done, but seeing those pics is like seeing your BABY - SKINNED! Very disturbing - tough to look at indeed. I think I like the vents in the hood. Which engine is in it, what kind of shape and how many miles? Great project - good for you!

I'd like to do seats myself, those sound like better reasons.

Go for it.

I want a lotus too

as far as the seat swap goes, there is a guy in Omaha NE with a set of beautiful ///M seats, fabric, black, and i think he wants $200 for them.
