Thanks vlad, I saw S676A when I first ran the vin, but couldn't figure out if it was upgraded premium audio or not, after looking at the car. I thought HiFi was just standard audio because I didn't see any subs.

Am I wrong?

I don't have order guides for Canada, but it looks like 676 is a standard equipment. Not sure why BMW listed it in the Ordered Options section.

So my car came originally with Anthrazit Uberkaro cloth seats?

That's weird because when I bought the car it had black letherette seats, but I had a set of Uberkaro seats so I put them in instead. I had no idea that they were meant to be there all along!

What about your door panels? Did they match your vinyl interior?

OK, just realized that your car is for US market so I looked at the order guides and other build sheet and it looks like if you ordered option S752A - Enhanced Premium Sound it deletes the S676A option. So it appears that most people actually ordered premium sound.

Only 1 was built for US market.

The most rare option on this car is the option S772A - Interior moldings Alu Black Cube. It was installed on 294 out of 25395 cars.

It is also one of 322 M Sports. Even though it was not officially offered in US, somehow 11 M Sports made it to US, the rest were built for Canada.

Yeah they did. I think the door panels that go with Uberkaro seats are black with grey cloth inserts if I'm not mistaken.

Old interior



New interior

I'm not very E30 savvy, but from what I know on cars with cloth interior door panels also got cloth inserts. I know that this is true on E34, E32 and E36.

I found this pic on the E30 Zone Wiki and I think these are the door panels that go with my seats.

Yup it's a US car, I'm curious of the 22 & 144 Red/Black Coupes, do you know how many were DCT? Probably would explain why it took me so long to find one.
