View Full Version : FS m3 2dr front and rear seats, armrest with console,12 disc changer,m3 door sills +

I spent a tonne of cash this winter trying to spiff up my 1999 318is. In the end I had to sell it and be happy with a s40 volvo with a warranty. the 4 cynlinder automatic bmw just wasn't cutting it and even after putting in thousands into the interior and wheels and repairs, it still was just an automatic 4 cylinder.

before i traded the car back in i took out all the parts i had tracked down and upgraded inside. Now that i have my volvo and i've got some upcoming renovations on the house i dont' want any of it to get ruined during the drywalling and brick cutting.

here's what i have and i'll post pictures to follow.

-manual heated front m3 vaders and rear m3 2dr seats in black leather. the rears are the whole seat top and bottom with the side bolsters, no headrest on the rears as i didn't get to buy them, and i already had leatherette headrests. In addition to the seats i have all the necessary wiring connectors and switches to hookup the seats in a car that doesn't have heated seats. It took the stereo guy i had install the switches and wiring about 4hrs labour to have them hooked up in case you were curious. to swap the seats into my car it took only about 30 minutes and it's ridicously easy to install them.they are originally from a 1998 m3

i paid $1600 for the front and rears from another max member in december 2003 so i haven't had them long myself.

i'd take $1300 for front and rears including the switches and connectors

-i also bought a black leather armrest console with cupholders. it's everything you'd need to convert a regular console into an armrest console. i have the bolts for the parking brake also. it was pretty hard to find an armrest in leather, the dealer wants 500 for a vynl one, i ended up shipping mine from a bmw shop in seatle of all places.

$150 for the armrest and everything in the armrest picture.

- m3 inside the door sills, i'm not sure exactly what they are called but they are from the same m3 that i got the seats from. you can pop these ones one in 10 minutes and the clips needed at 20 cents each from bmw in case you break a couple.

$60 for 2 "m3 door sills"

- because i wanted to keep my bmw looking stock and clean i looked high and low for a cd changer to add onto my stock deck. I ended up findign a 12 disc pioneer changer with a peripheral aux in interface. this maked the 12 disc changer work off the trunk cd cable like an original bmw changer. only you get 12 discs instead of the 6 bmw has, an AUX in which allows you to pipe anything you like into the stereo ( i put a 40 gig mp3 player thru it) and the changer is controlled by the stock deck, no fudging wires, no wierd stuff, the deack even displays up to CD 12 (you selecd 7-12 by hitting the numbers twice).

i bought the changer and aux in interface for $450 and an additional $30 usd for the changer bracket.

I'm looking for $300 for the all 3 pieces. I'm not selling the interface separately.

-battery cover $20

- a full set of Harmon kardon e36 speakers with hi fi switch (no amp) including the speaker grills for the rears and door speakers.

$150 for the whole set + a hi fi switch

one drivers side vent, see picture, no switches included jsut the vent cover

best offer for the vent cover.

for more info, pictures please email me at nullcable@hotmail.com as it's tough keeping track of message in the forums pm system. Local pickup for the big stuff. (GTA area, i'm in the beaches)

i really liked the bmw and i spent alot of money on it making it just right, but i wasn't ready to go all the way and do drastic changes to the car to make it faster than a neon

04-20-2004, 11:34 PM
how much you lookin to get for the speakers??

04-22-2004, 12:24 AM
hey..about that HK system, what OHM are the speakers? do i need the OEM amp?

04-22-2004, 12:39 AM
i don't know too much about what configuration is needed to run the speakers honeslty. they have regular bmw connectors on the back of them. i only hooked up the rears in my car as i sold the car before i got too crazy and punched holes in teh doors for the tweeters. i didn't buy the amp because i didn't have all the bmw wiring installed in the car already to put it all together, i figured i could just buy regular amps and wire them up like a regular set of speakers.

the label on the rears says 20w 3 ohm and 30w 2 ohm
the smallest tweeter says 4w 4 ohm
the bigger "tweeter" says 20w 3ohm
and the kickpanel speaker says 30w 2 ohm
there's orange bmw part numbers on all of them also if that would help.

I'll take the seats - front and back. Email me at: shane.thomas@mobility.com

06-02-2004, 07:57 PM
i sent emails with my contact info/cell # to everyone about the seats. basically whomever comes first and buys them gets them. I'm getting bombarded by people "interested" but i can't hold onto them forever waiting as i posted these a little while ago.
people are welcome to come see them and decide for themsevles as i dont' want to rush/presure anyone into buying them as well. but first come first served is the best i can do.
