I'm loving it, especially when I contrast it with the BMW nav that I had in my Z4 M Coupe. KrisL installed a gauge panel into the ashtray area of his car. I don't recall if he posted a DIY on it, but he might have.

I did see that a while back. Andy at LeatherZ did it for him. I emailed them, but it was too difficult of a job so he wont re-create =(

It might also have been due to small potential sales volumes. They put together a fairly complicated gauge panel for the Z4Ms and sold 8 to 10 of them, probably at a loss (1 went to me).

New look for my 330i

No more chrome grill or trim, smoked corners, SSK w/ leather shift knob!

Now I need to grab some stealth bulbs (I believe that's what they are called) for my turn signals to eliminate the bright orange color.
Anyone know where to pick them up for a nice price?

Thanks! It's been fun.

I saw that I was leaking coolant about an hour ago
It wasn't from the radiator leak I quick fixed with some jb weld. Looks like it is coming from the expansion tank or one of the hoses.

Now I'm gonna have even more fun doing a coolant system overhaul

At least it looks cool while parked in my driveway/
Who am I kidding, this sucks!

Here's one pic that someone requested me to post a full size version of.
