On my 2013 X1 I had taken the front headrests off and swapped them for the rear ones because they leaned so far forward.

On the new 2016, I tried the same trick because I wear a brimmed hat a lot...

Sorry, most everything is gone by way of a donation and the curb.
Still have the Red-Line and the steering wheel.
Red-Line is DX4 I believe. Will look when I get home tonight.

Las Vegas NV, clearing out parts

Hi All,
I traded my 2000 328ci a while ago (for a 2013 X1) and have a slew of parts.
Will let them go as "Take them All".
Price? Make an offer, otherwise I'm donating them to The Salvation Army....

I sit corrected having my gazzilionith coffee:-). But I stand by braised instead of braided. Especially with garlic and minced thyme. :D
