I plastidiped the trim around my windows. Turned out great but its been about a year and the color is starting to fade a bit. I will have to add a layer or two pretty soon.

The Nikasil problem was only on some UK models. I do not remember which ones, but a quick google for Nikasil should yield the info if you need it. (I read into it several years ago before buying my e36 and do not recall the details).

I traded my green 318 for a calypso rot 325i, even trade the 325 has just a few more miles on it than the 318...... Two downfalls first the interior needs some TLC and it's an autotragic but it shifts strong. Kept the style 5's. What do ya think?

The horn works just fine. I actually have it hooked to my train horn. :P

The airbag light was removed and taped over temporarily until I get the correct resistors to close the circuit.

Everything works great so far an I am loving it!

Nice, but I thought a driver side airbag was required for inspection...hm I never knew.
