Correction: it needs to be WITH electric window switch openings. Realoem gave me that drawing, but it's wrong.
I've got a sedan one for you.

I looked up what pelican gets for that surround and just about fell off the chair. Dang near $300 with shipping, and it's a special order "from BMW" part. Holy mother Macree!
Glad to hear you're feeling better!

Was able to get it apart in auto class, looks like its the lever-looking thing that pivots when you pull the handle that broke. In theory it should fix without having to pull the whole assembly. Grr...
That's the part that always breaks. You have to replace the whole thing.

Yes, a baby blue ruffle tux will definitely conveyed to the judge how not douchey you are.

Reminded me of randy's smart ass comment about Mercedes and bankers: went out to the car right now to head out for lunch, and next to mine are 3 more shiny black Mercedes sedans all in a row.

Ken, the difference in coupe and sedans centre bits is the holes for the window switches.

Edit: And I'm glad that you've dropped your glucose so much so quick. THat's a GREAT sign!

It's true, my car had a miss a while ago and it sounded very very similar to an STI.



Have my physical testing tomorrow, any tips? What should I eat in the morning? Drink? Energy stuff?
