wow, you have quite a decent budget, thumbs-up on loving your e30

have you considered a swap for a stronger heart? (just curious)

Black carpet: not sure about aftermarket, but i heard that black carpets were only available on south african e30
if you wanna save some money, you can do this (look at pics around the mid of the page):

I rocked mine for a year and it's still nice and black (vinyl parts are wearing out a bit tho)

I though m42 that is on these cars is DI. Why do you need wires?

also make sure it's possible to run regular e30 style sway pickups with the m3 arms (i am not positive, so verify that part). May consider converting to m3 style pickups. (or just convert to m3 struts and do 5bolt and the problem will resolve itself)

oh and great choice on brake components

Cheers
Alex

Most of these items can be found on the internet from various parts suppliers or on ebay.

(There is a deal on IE stage 3 springs right now on e30tech.com for $285)

Interested in a wheel like this? Not entirely super deep dish, but there is a bit of lip there... PM me if interested for better pics. (This is just so you get an idea of what it looks like)

Thanks Alex...ultimately I'd like it to be a trailered car...

I've got plans for an M30T down the road...

I'm just looking for the darkest carpets the E30 came with. It doesn't have to be black...but dark grey to black I suppose.

You are absolutely correct that it's DI, so naturally I don't need wires.

The cost of converting to a 5-bolt is a waste of money imo, unless you have some really specific racing needs.


cheers mate

Well of course they can, but that wasn't the point of my op...I don't want to close any doors in terms of finding desired parts.

Thanks for the headsup about the IE springs, I may pick them up if the reviews are on par with Eibach and H & R.

cheers

The reason I posted this is because some of the parts you posted should be new. The best place to find new parts for cheap prices = internet.
