Thumbs up Thank you for the site!

I think I just about read every page in your www.bmw325i.net site.
Thank you for the clear information, good quality pictures and experienced opinions.
I think the installation of the Alpine MP3 Player CD Changer is invaluable.

Thank you. Please keep up the good work.

They stopped putting that on cars (even coupes) starting sometime in 2002 I think.

Yet another example of car companies de-contenting to save a couple bucks, or in this case, euros.

I am not sure what the function of the panel is but I am going to venture and guess that it protects the bottom of the oil pan (with that thin plate ?) and makes better aerodynamics.

Anyhow, I will try to order it from my local dealer, Shelly's BMW.

Thanks, Hack.
