Let me know how you like the stock lighting too, thinking of switching my bucket back to the stock orange plastic. They seem to look good on the green with black kidney grills.

Make me an offer I can't refuse. You won't need to do much work.

TwentySeven - you sellin' yet??
IF he's selling, I'm first in line and giving him his offer. Called dibs like 2 years ago.

OP nice pickup. I agree the green on dove is better than green on black. I actually like the green.

Congrats on another great pick-up and rescue Eric! Never say never, Fall in Boston is beautiful - you can join us for some pretty cool CCA events! Not quite as beautiful as the PCH, but the right coast has it's own old world charm.

My driver door card is loose at the bottom and doesn't seem to attach firmly, I wouldn't be surprised if it will fall apart like yours. Keep us updated on your progress.

I know right! He needs to get that damn B12 kit installed already so he can tell us how it is for the 36 I loved it on the 46M.

It was shifter-Bushings and Guibo day. I forgot to order a new *****-clip, so I couldn't finish that job. Another order. Then I ordered 2 more Giubos. They'll get used on a 36M or 46M eventually. The one pictured had 150,000 miles on it. It drove fine, but I won't put that back on the car. It's probably worse inside.

Darn that cold wind lately. I want a 4-stall garage, amongst many other things that won't happen soon.

The air box baffle came today too, for $10. Thanks Danny (danuts85@yahoo.com) in Sacramento at German-BMW. The PO threw it away saying he gained 1HPower.
I've read many "De-Baffle" threads. Basically, folks claim it adds 1HPower or takes away as many as 6HPower. No one cares enough to do before-and-after dynos. My experience is that I hear more engine intake noise. No thanks.

My only gripe with BG is a photo never does the colour justice. Photos always make them look to dark, or too blue etc
