Re: Dakar Distraction

The mesh is color matched, that thing's lost all it's value now. I'll take it off your hands if you want.

Re: VF Supercharged Upper Radiator Hose Information

I'd ask for pictures but it probably looks exactly the same, doesn't it?

Re: Need Opinions. Style 32 BMW Wheels from Cyruline

Great to hear! Sucks that you lost a bit of money but I'd say that was a well worth $80 lesson you'll never have to learn again.

Re: 95m3 owners who want BAV SOUND!

BavSound already makes an upgrade for the OBD2 models, but not the OBD1 (95) M3.

I think what he meant was cheap no-name brand hoses. Rein is an OE so if they have that it's not a bad idea. When I got my Rein hoses from my local parts store they actually still had the BMW emblems...

"Unplug it and see what happens" would be the easiest test before "anyone else knew how to!".

If you're throwing efficiency codes I don't think pre-cats are going to help as much as post-cats.

I would still spend the extra money and go with MotionMotorsport. With the SSI underpanel it's held onto the bumper alone whereas the MM underpanel is held to the bumper AND the chassis. It's a lot...

Gotcha, you could always try filling it in with something before putting the gasket on if it really bothers you.

As for the temp needle, I wouldn't sweat it. If you're really worried, get an OBD2...

Re: Underbody panels and duct work

I don't see why it wouldn't. I believe the chassis and standard M bumper (compared to LTW) are the same on the US & Euro market E36 M3 with regards to mounting points.

Re: My 98 Dakar Yellow "build" thread

It's hit or miss. I had the Uro housing in my last car and in my current one. No problems so far. However I've heard of others having to sand them flat a bit.

Re: Oil filter housing HELP!

I figured it wasn't really structural. I just typically go for stronger bolts any time I have to replace any.

I can't comment but I would think that it couldn't hurt going with stronger hardware (10.9 vs 8.8).

Which connection are you talking about? The 3 pin connector that goes into the side of the radiator is actually a switch that triggers the low and high speed relays for the Aux fan. The actual temp...

Re: If I lose a dog light bulb will I lose the other + The green light?

Also true. The fogs aren't truly independently wired. They both split off the same harness that's fed from the same fuse/line.

Do both of your high beams still work?

I'm working off of memory now but I believe ground for the fogs is provided through the high beams on US cars.

Same for me.

Isn't ATF what's supposed to be used? At least that what the sticker on my transmission says.
