    Looks alright now, but I'm lazy. Any pictures from the other side with the door card in sight?

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Yeah, it's a trim found only on Euro-spec cars. Looks nice on pictures but it's that rubber-coated crap so it's scratched up in few places. I bought black alu cube trim to throw in.

    Well, I got screwed over for the door panels with leather handles. I paid for them weeks ago and the guy sent me a pic of them packed in the box only to tell me the next morning that his brother sold them to someone else. Really ruined my day and I searched everywhere since then, and they are incredibly rare to find.

    So for now I settled for these individual factory two-tone door panels.





    Saves me the trouble of making my own and they'll go along nicely with what I want to do.

    One simple cleaning of the drivers seat bottom.





    I removed the bottom part to take it to the upholstery shop to have the middle stitched up and I'll also need to replace the foam as it's disintegrating.

    Watched the last e46 wagon. Great content

    Btw are the euro rear clear tailights still available from the parts car? I'm having a hard time sourcing a set here in the states.

    Thanks! Yeah, I still have them. They are plentiful here and I had no interest in them. The inner ones are pretty faded, been meaning to remove them and try polishing them. Send me a PM and I'll get you some pictures.

    Here's the video. I'm really enjoying the Touring more than I imagined.



    To be totally honest, I'd love to stick S54 in it one day, but that would be a huge project and would defeat the purpose of a cheap runaround. Now it's not fast which makes it fun on the backroads whereas with the M5, I hit the speed limit pretty quickly.

    Another great video, Sreten. Those seats look great after some cleaning, and turned out nicely after the refinishing. Looking forward to the next episode - I really like how we got a preview of what's to come in your posts here, too.

    Looking forward to seeing the M-Tech II kit on the car as well - but man, assuming those have to be painted, not so much of a budget project anymore as you said lol

    It got out of hand quickly. It's so expensive to paint stuff here, next week I'm dropping it off to sort out the rust on the rear right quarter panel, $470. The rust needs to be cut out and new piece welded in. To repaint both bumpers and side skirts, $1200, yup! If I try to find cheaper than that, the quailty will be awful. I'll have bumpers repainted come spring time.
