    After 3days of trying, finally got my key re coded to the car (E46) after replacing buttons in the key fob. It just would not register for some reason, then tonight, boom! central locking is back.

    either or, depends on what im doing. i'm more proficient on the Weber Family Q than Weber kettle. got a home made in ground fire pit too, but that's marshmallow territory so doesn't realy count :)
  10. How's this going, Brent. really like the prospect of a conversion like this, once the kids are out of car seats

    Had my MF Wheel project completed this week. Wheel swap and cruise control had been in for about 4 weeks...this week i got a new Alpine mechless media player installed and Audio controls wired up by Mad Soundz here in hamilton. They did a great job and after some fiddling the Bavsound speakers have really come alive with the Alpine unit. It's great have bluetooth audio and phone (with Mic) too.
  14. Out of boredom, i was Looking at some cold air intakes for for my e46 320i. wondering if any one has done one & noticed any difference in performance / induction sound. eg https://afepower.com/afe-power-54-20442-magnum-force-stage-2-pro-5r-cold-air-intake-system#reviews

    Bavsound - where to buy from?

    just a heads up to double check you cars current config can accept the kit you're buying with out mods or extra peices. When i ordered from them what i got for my E46 bolt in system was different than what my car actually needed for the front splits. this was due to the kit being made for US base model and not Euro / international base models which had different audio "base" set ups from factory. This cause a few headaches for me and Bavsound. they sorted it but somewhat reluctantly. since then they've changed the wording on their site and kits and shipping international isnt an option. That being said the speakers are awesome and the fact the are direct OEM replacements is fantastic. i love the range and depth and a great upgrade on the 6 factory speakers for E46 sedan. good luck with your upgrade

    new wheel has had current, freshly recalled (last year) airbag fitted. so i'm sorted old air bag needs checking first and foremost, i forgot to take it to dealer. so will do tomorrow. they will check but can only perform recall on vehicles once (recall is vehicle aligned not airbag aligned). if airbag i did get with the MF wheel does need to be recalled it'll have to go to a car that hasn't had one yet or be disposed of. if it doesn't need recalling i will sell with the steering wheel that came out of my car.

    Bit of automotive optometry today; New to me passenger side headlight bowls. (Others had been marred by water and dirt from leaky seal) and new headlight weather strips, both sides on the E46. Took the opportunity to give all the surrounds a good clean up while passenger side was apart too.
  23. what are these gorgeous things? brand & retailer, please?
  24. Question for those that have retro fitted Multi function wheels to their cars, or have these steering wheels and have fitted after market head unit. Have you successfully been able to control volume on the after market unit with the buttons on the steering wheel?

    E46 A & C Pillar repair

    i tried refurbishing mine 2 years ago, couldn't get good results / consistent finish so methodically, as budget allowed replaced them all with new ones. this ensured factory fit with BMW OEM materials, color and quality.
