Now that's interesting... I don't think that's how ours work down here... or at least I didn't know they worked that way.

I must check them out and report back.

The alternator cooling was removed from later M3's (03/97+?) so I wouldn't consider it essential.

Re: The Silly Little Question Thread

All M3 Evo's came with that option ticked here in NZ, in fact you couldn't "untick" it.

Also, from 1997 all e36's (indeed all BMW's) came with factory alarm and integrated keyfob.
