I replaced both rear regulators in 2007 and anticipate that the fronts might go (not sure if the previous owner replaced them or not). Put me on the list for the fronts if you get that finalized. I'd buy a set just to have on hand for when they eventually go.
Many thanks,

Thanks Ray,

Really the fleece is there, it's just that it's reasonable

Actually it's just that I've been doing stuff like this all my life at work and have a pretty nice shop setup at home that makes doing things like this pretty easy. Once you get the fixtures made it's sort of mass production time, so it's not like I'm spending hours making up each kit. I'm just lucky to have sources for material and experience doing things just like this that keeps the fleece reasonable and profitable enough for me to produce them. Of course then I keep thinking 100,000 + E39's produced times $15....... Wow sort of like hitting the lotto
