As you change lanes without looking to the side you can still have you're head forward. Therefore you "wink" to the person your about to pass

idk that's all I got

'94 M3?

From the M3 wiki:

The first E36 M3 to be imported to the United States was the 1995 model

I think those were the FIRST M3's in the US...they had late builds like 10/94 etc...I think Joey's (SlimKlim) is technically a 94 as well...but I'm not sure...

Yeah, I had the same thought. Don't know. Seller claims it's legit, not that it would matter for a pair of visers. But yes, that was a curiosity of mine, too.

Update: The seller would like to keep the visers to sell along with the headliner as a full unit.

Hmmm ok my headliner is in perfect shape, no sags or anything......Thanks anyways Karl

Does anybody know if the mid-pipe is the same length for sedan and coupe? Are there any differences from 328 to m3?

Only difference being OBD1/2...

Thanks Randy, I think I'm going to have a hard time smoging the ///m, so I was trying to do some reasearch. Is there a benifit to going to OBD2? I thought I read something about higher flowing cats....


In other news, I ordered a bunch of new parts from Pelican, along with an alarm remote and some other plastic things......and installed my H&R sport rear springs

OBDII would include post cat sensors, so you would have to plug those up.

Ok so tonight when I got home, I found two big boxes from pelican. So I started on my next set of projects:

Oil change
Swapped fog lights from the 325 to the m3
Replaced blower resistor, so now the fan works on all settings
Replaced cabin filter
Raised the front coils
Replaced spark plugs
Tested the gauge cluster from the 325 in the m3 ( It works, so now I just need to find a lower mileage one for the m3 )

So next I need to replace the fan clutch, and inspect the whole cooling system.....maybe tomorrow night

Find any front h&r's yet?
