    Bessie has had a partial refurb of her interior. From black to ivory with blue stitching. Work was done by SF Car Trim at Great Bromley. They have done a brilliant job. Took four weeks from start to finish but would have been quicker only they weren't happy with the Z3 embroidery on the head rests and sent it back twice to be re-done. So that was good, showed they were conscientous about their work. Would highly recommend them if anyone is thinking of a refurb.

    What has been replaced? Seats, gaitors on gear stick and hand brake. Side panels in doors which were seamed and stitched to match rest of upholstery, roll bars and ties to hold perspex wind deflector which was heaps better than the plastic we had before. Realised we should have also had the sun visors done so are going to get these done as well.

    You could have part of the dash done along with the visors.

    Wear light trousers with that colour!

    Having seen it in the flesh today all I can say is it is superb and really goes with the exterior colour of the car. I'm not jealous one little bit ;-)

    Lovely change, don't wear jeans though! You should get the edge of the wind deflector trimmed also.

    What a brilliant job!

    I love the Z3 emblem on the head rest. Perfect finish.

    Really impressed.

    I love the ivory on the steering wheel most of all, very classy and unique. I am envious, must of emptied your wallet! Don't know if anyone her in Tasmania has the skills to do that level of quality workmanship.
