Under the knife again...

Been collecting euro parts for months to do a few interior/electrical mods all at the same time. I'll post results of what I did, if/when I ever finish.

Guess it's too late to turn back now?

Don't worry, I'll be doing Roxy's car soon enough as well. I'll be over Sat whenever you say. I'll do my E30 brake flush first, then E39. Okey-dokey?

Nothing like car guts! Too bad my car still looks that way 2 weeks later... Hope to finish soon. I assume it's a sweet upgrade, right?

How much'd that larger screen NAV run you? Possibly thinking of doing the same. Wasn't it about $3000 at one time?
