somehow, bigneil screwed that up.

I was reading a BMW book last night and in the section on the E36 it said something to the effect of:

"for the first time BMW had a new issue to contend with, complaints of plastic cheap interiors specifically and illfitting glovebox"

True, but I just removed a dime from my change tray to make up for the 2.268 grams that the screws added

It's all about how tight you can get the screws...drill a hole slightly smaller than what would normally fit the screw and slowly force it in.
