S54B32 M Coupe | Titanium Silver | Black | Hartge Hood | Z8 Steering Wheel

 

This M Coupe was posted on m3forum.net by The Welshman. This Coupe has a number of interesting mods. The Hartge hood stands out the most on the exterior. It’s very uncommon, but that could very well be due to it’s poor fitment (large body gaps), and extreme design with so many vents, and the strange kidney grilles. I think the hood looks pretty cool, but you’ve gotta have the power under the hood to back up all of the vents. An NA S54 doesn’t quite cut it. 😉 Nonetheless, a cool mod to see. The coupe also has AC Schnitzer exhaust, Hartge Classic wheels, and a paint matched hatch spoiler. Inside the Coupe the dash, and hockey sticks of the door panels have been wrapped in contrasting Alcantara with a repainted or maybe woodgrain center console panels. I’m not certain about the pedals, shift knob, or ebrake handle, but I assume they are Hartge, but could be AC Schnitzer. The most obvious difference in the interior is the Z8 steering wheel. I’ve seen it installed in a few different Z3s, but it’s not something you’ll see very often. From what I’ve read, as long as you have a 2 stage airbag, it’s a direct fit including the slip ring. Pretty cool.

  1. You are right – the fit is a little weird. Wonder what that hood costs?? Autocross in the heat of summer, and you wish you had vents. 60 seconds of flat out, followed by 10-15 minutes of dead stop= heat build up. I am in the habit of popping the hood between runs.

      I’ve seen one Hartge hood pop up for sale in 4 years. I don’t know what it sold for, but I think the seller was unaware of it’s value and sold it for much less than he could have. Your comment about the additional vents assumes that they are actually functional. 😉
