After 4 years of owning it, I've sold the car & decided to move up to my first supercar

It's been a joy to own the 'Ultimate driving machine', there's been some likes & dislikes over the years, overall mostly likes and surprises.

Just want to send a big thank you to the OP.

Just picked up a black 335ix last week.

Have about 1/3 of the mods in your list on their way. Beautiful car you had!

It felt similar with a slightly but bites quicker under load, it does squeel a lot and brake dust was a lot worse compared to stock.

It cost about $3200 USD to get it retrimmed in Nappa leather for front & rear seats, door cards & arm rest.

Looking at pictures, it hard to tell what you did to Door Panels.

Did you do

1) door arm rest

2) door panel insert

3) top of door panel in leather

4) rest of door panel (essentially full door panel) in leather?
