    Repairing fire-damaged ZHP sedan

    So, I'm new here, and am in the process of purchasing a 2003 330i ZHP sedan with fire damage to the dash (light control module, I'm betting.) I'm going to need advice and wisdom as I put this thing back together - my expertise is primarily air-cooled 911s, although I've owned a few M3s which I've wrenched on. (so be gentle)

    Here's the car:

    very cool. welcome!

    definitely post more details on the damage, when you get it. lots of folks have extra parts available.... i've got tons, including a few spare LCMs. collectively, we'll get your new-to-you ZHP back on the road.

    now, about those 911s... still got one?

    Thanks!

    here's the mess:






    I've sourced a dash and door panel already, and believe I can save the seats and center console - but the gauge cluster is toast, as well as several other bits..

    As I research this, I'm going to want to have a clear understanding of where I can make improvements - LCM, for instance, or maybe going to rain-sensing wipers since the windshield has to be replaced? I appreciate any advice you can give me.

    Welcome, Not too bad, looks like a littel sun damage, Just rub a little CarPro Dlux on it.

    there are several members parting out their cars. I'm sure we can help you find the bits needed.

    This also happened to the ZHP Dario bought. Interestingly, his was also a 2003.

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