    The insane thing is that 7k isn't far off for fenders, an m3 door, and a C pillar...

    E36 OEM Keyless Install Fail

    Seller here... it worked perfectly on my car for a long time so I really hope nothing is wrong with the system! I did have a similar issue at one point, but I narrowed it down to a very sticky trunk lock that was preventing the actuator from working properly. I lubed/freed up the trunk lock parts and it worked again. My guess would be that somewhere there is a faulty door lock actuator, hood sensor, or something is sticking mechanically. Do you have the hood sensor plugged in? Those seem to be problematic. It might be worth going through and unplugging one actuator/sensor at a time and see if anything changes. I'd start with the hood sensor, then fuel door actuator, trunk actuator, then doors since they're the hardest to get to. Have you checked the condition of your trunk wiring at the hinge? I never knew the glovebox would lock/unlock with central locking, that's pretty neat. Maybe a function on convertibles only?

    the one and only e30 s52 engine swap

    Agreed, it sounds fantastic!!
  10. Dang, depending on the timing of a friend's wedding that same day I might not be able to make it... I buy enough stuff at the dealership that the discount more or less pays for the membership

    Badger Bimmers Annual E30 Picnic -June 8, 2019

    That must have been so confusing when you got there haha. Thanks for getting some proof I actually made it! I didn't take a single picture... Huge thanks to everyone who helped plan and run the event, I had a fantastic time meeting people and catching up with everyone. Perfect weather and lots of cars to check out!

    155.8k Made it to the picnic! Forgot to take any pictures since I was having too good of a time. The weather couldn't have been better and it was great seeing everyone! Snapped this crappy picture of it after washing off 1.5 years of garage dust and dirty fingerprints.
