Re: MSportParts Replacement Key FOB

You can run the 2-button module in your 95. Modules are $15 at the junk yard.

The three button module/remotes are readily available, even BMW still sells them. No reason for me to mess with those.

Thank you Sean. Given your history with the E36, it's a relief to me that you like them :)

Re: M-Texture Alcantara Full Interior

It's hard to say what the condition is. There's only one image of a poorly lit used set, and then a bunch of photos of a member's car here from ages ago. That ad is bullshit.

It's unlikely to sell, so you'll be keeping it or recycling.

Re: Joe's E36 M3 Coupe Journal

Good to hear it's back on the road, Joe! She looks wonderful.

I have to grief you though; the caliper color fails the color wheel test badly. Black, Silver, Orange or Yellow!

Re: Sway bar end links: correct install procedure?

The suspension load needs to match each side. If the sway bar is under unequal load you will have a difficult time removing and installing.

Maybe I missed it, but you forgot to detail the corners of the bumper that taper away from the fender gap. It is shown very well in the pictures though.

Why is RALLYROAD in the title? Are you praising them or bashing them? Eric is very forthcoming with all of his products. You really need to better formulate your thoughts.
