Re: Airbag reset tool

Bingo. Take the short time (these days) to set up INPA on anything and buy a cable for $25 bucks. You will get far more functionality and use out of that instead.

Re: Clear front bumper reflectors

Re: Clear front bumper reflectors

Are people buying these from Bimmian still or is there a better place?

Truthfully, I would prefer to buy unpainted blanks for less and shoot these myself when I do my interior trim body color.

Re: Breakthrough discovery about the Spal 30102082 Fan! The Most powerful sealed fan

In the Z3M community, most of us have removed the mechanical fan and ran strictly off of the aux fan for years. You almost never hear of anyone putting it back onto an s52 or s54 car. Those cars have...
