    Hello everyone, I'm from Japan and I have a 1997 M3 Evolution.. I recently bought the car and I love it! The only changes to the car are A/M/S coilovers and Brembo front calipers.

    This site seems full of advice and pointers. The previous owner left me with a nice surprise, the passenger footwell is soaking (LHD car)! Under the carpet there seems to be a swimming pool. I'll have a search on here for the causes but I need to sort this out ASAP!

    It could be a leaking heater matrix behind the dashboard, keep an eye on coolant levels, and maybe take the glovebox off and have a look.
    It's right in the middle of the car, and look for clues like white residue for leaks.
