sliding seats

My 87 325e seats (2 door) tilt and slide when you lift up on the knob on the side of the back rest. I can't imagine getting more than a small shopping bag back there if they didn't slide forward. All...

That is a very sweet ride. Keep the basketweaves and put some great winter tires like Blizzaks on them, then you'll really be able to have some fun with that ix.

glad to see this thread

I also would be interested in how you did this. I've already got the filter mod set up for the K&N cone filter. It would be really nice to turn it into a cold air system instead of hot air.

ac question

Are you getting cold air? If you are, then your ac is working. If not, then it's not. If there is no drip from your ac drainage, then you might have a break in your discharge line somewhere. That...

Now we're talking, this is a great thread!

I have to admit, the idea of lots more power and reliability sounds really good. The S52 swap is sounding more appealing by the day. Unfortunately, I'll have to find help to do it because I'm not in...

Drl ?

My apology for the interruption of your intended thread, but what is a DRL (or DRI) module? It sounds like some kind of vehicle management system, but I've never heard of it before.

This more like it; forget the drifting, well, that's fun too, but this is where BMW is best.
