Scored an M bumper, M steering wheel, and facelift headlights at the junkyard over the past 2 days. Pretty much stole them for the price I paid!

I'd love to know the idiot who worked on this E90 before I bought it... two airbag codes for stage 1 and 2 on the passenger airbag. Circuit too high/open. I pop out the glovebox to find no airbag......
