Soul destroying, arm aching work.

What are you stripping it with and how did yo get the wiring to go up through the hole above the axle? Mine seems to have something fixed over the top that doesn't look like it will go back on if I pull it off....

That looked mint! So why did you sell it then?

Back to me...

Now added a new custom option to my car, that autmatically puts the radio in mute when reverse gear is selected/PDC is on.

I always find myself turning the volume down/off when reversing, as it just takes that extra bit of concentration.

Been wanting to do this for years, but never actually got around it. Now that I did the flappy paddles and the underdash is all removed, this was the time to do it.

I added a switch so I can turn this function on/off.

I'm still tempted by these. Do you run 8" all around of 8/9"?

..yes it was, new owner very pleased.

Have reached an age where I am attempting to simplify my life somewhat so it's part of that process although would still like an E46.

Also, I've driven it relatively few miles in the last 12 months and these cars should be used rather than live in the garage for 10 months each year so figured time others got a chance to enjoy.

Although sad its gone am amazed how much it had increased in value since 2012
