Re: Review: Brey Krause Seat Mounts For OE BMW E46 Sliders

Saga continues. Nuked both switches today. I'm thinking either they were just shitty or when I reassembled them the contacts got screwed up. New switches on the way....

Looking at your pics, it...

Re: Help !!! A/C is fully charged Driver side cold-passenger warm

Ditto. Had a similar issue (all vents blowing warm air) and replaced my heater control valve, all is well. Easy replacement too. Just need to remove the airbox and the valve is right there.

Re: Question About Race Seat Install

Got the seat fitted up for the most part last night. Unfortunately, I think the sliders are going to be necessary, ingress and egress would be a bit too tricky without. #shortlegs
