KMart special ?

I'm guessing here but maybe it's not the amp's.

Mine sounded horribly when I got it especially in the low frequencies...

Any leakage or just the loose trim ?

Depends on wether or not there is a leak.

Can't tell from the pictures to be honest.

If it's just the trim that's let loose I'd try superglue and see where that gets you...

Thread direction OK ?

Hi,

just to make sure :
Check wether the tire has a directional profile or not and if it's mounted the right way on the rim.

Yep there is a switch for the radio so maybe that is causing your troubles.
There should also be a switch for the hood which might cause the effects you're describing.

First of all : I love Top Gear in all its absurd ways.

Gas fill issue.

Edgar,

Might be that your fueltank venting tube has clogged up or something.
BMW calls this an Outlet pipe, but it serves the same purpose I guess.

CAN Bus or OBD ?

Hi,

i'm not 100 % sure, but as far as I understand it, CANbus and OBD are different things altogether. The CANbus replaced the older OBD, but might still use parts of that.

Smile Windows not working fast/correct.

The leaks have been covered enough I guess. :)

The windows not going up and down might be caused by the gliders in the mechanism.
Some have to replace the gliders but this might do the trick...

when I bought my Z3 I didn't notice it right away, but in full sun shine my digital clock was unreadable, which was quite distracting and a bit dangerous.

Hi Jos,

First of all, you should have more connectors in there, but I guess you're implying those are the only ones that are not connected.
