Yeah, will give it a nudge, must admit I’m a complete FCP fanboy but looks like a good value alternative.

Let me know if u want to order anything to combine shipping. Gonna place an order sometime next week for Rockauto.

Rubber floor mats that I can get quickly that fit well.  Can anyone recommend any?  I usually hate them but I need them to protect the carpet as we move into wetter weather.  I also have sheep on the property who just love to sleep on the bloody driveway right by the gate.  When I go to leave they stand up, take a dump and wander away.  I hate sheep.  There are about 200 of them taking turns doing this it seems.

Rubbertree probably has something.  Although the ones I got for my Maser are ever so slightly too big which is annoying as they bunch up.

I've dealt with that guy before, that's who I got my roof strip from(same car I'm pretty sure). Was a good price.

$14k auto with 120k+ and absolutely nothing going for it... "looking for a quick sale"...

Yeah, right.

It's like mine. But with more KMs. A year older. No wheels. And in worse condition. For double the price...

Good buy.

Just curious how many 130i people with automatic gearbox's use the 'sport mode' thing?

Frequently. Whenever I want or need more aggressive shifting, rev hold to redline or manual mode that doesn't automatically revert to Drive. The standard mode on the box does none of those things.

My trans has been flashed though and is very aggressive in Sport mode, your experience may be different.

Every time I go over the hill to Wellington.  Is great.  Changes fast.  I don't let it do it's own thing though.  I just the paddles.

Has anyone fitted M3 gearbox mounts? Is it worth it? I hear swapping out the gearbox fluid for Redline is a good thing to improve shift feel?
