I'll fit my old one and use some P clips I reckon.

Prices have gone from stupid to ridiculous or NLA

Maybe we will start to benefit from the BMW parts Classic programme at some point.....

Nice project. I'm an ur quattro owner aswell, recognise your user name from maybe the quattroforum.
Used to have a z3m but I sold it 10 years ago. Always regretted it especially now that it would be worth quadruple what I sold it for now!
Would love to buy it back

Thanks, yes I haven't had a quattro since 2013/14, probably should have changed my username, was on the quattro forum and S2 Forum a lot. I had mine for 7 years, my first classic car, in at the deep end!! Learnt a lot. it was a 10V WR but I transplanted an AAN 20V and wound her up to 450bhp. Sold it to buy my classic Alfa. Bought the quattro for something like £6500 in 2006, a bit different to now!

Good to know there is some crossover, you still have your quattro? I miss mine a little sometimes but I certainly did everything with it :)

I was on the s2 forum aswell, sal_s2
I've still got my quattro, the only car I managed to hold onto, had it nearly 15years now. It was an mb 10v but I pulled that out within days of buying and put an rs2 engine in. Really glad I didnt sell it, tinkered with it all through the first lockdown

I sold my zed in 2011 I think, it didnt really get any use as I bought a b5 rs4 not long after. Regretted selling it pretty much straight away.
Was really tempted to have a look at the silver cat d one that was on ebay but didnt have the time to go and view. I'm guessing it belongs to someone on here now.

Very Nice, looks like pearl white? Pretty much my favourite colour, nice, the way those 5 banger engines rev out is pretty addictive!

There are still a few more reasonably priced coupes out there if you look hard and don't mind a little bit of work. It has been one of the best car's I've bought, iconic, fun and easy to work on with good parts availability.

Has the parts situation for the quattro improved a bit now? Some things used to be a nightmare!! I remember failing an MOT for a cracked exhaust manifold, and pleading with the tester as it had already been welded!

Yes its mother of magnolia pearl white

Parts are more available now than they were then. Still a poor effort by audi though in comparison to other manufacturers. There is a company called Audi tradition and also owners have taken the initiative and started having some parts remade.

I've recently started looking at the z4m coupes for sale, I think I've left it a little too long to get another z3m. I dont mind getting my hands dirty but dont fancy welding sills and boot floors! I'll keep an eye open , you never know
