keep in mind the interior was vinyl.....you got a tough choice ahead of you......i think the e30 2.5l is a pretty decent motor.....but extra hp sounds tempting

Honestly though, If you wanted HP you could've not painted the car or bought the kit. You obviously want your car to look good... fix ALL problems (ie. interior) and THEN worry about the HP.

I say go for the interior, your car is fast enaugh to get you tickets And whats the point anyways...race from time to time and show off to some Civic...but you (and everybody looking/sitting in your car) would be enjoing that new interior all the time
