    Hello. My name is Dan, and today I got more horsepowers

    I think those are the same wheels that came with my car. Do you like those BFG's? The Kuhmo Ecsta XS that are mounted are just about at the wear bars and are $150ea. Rather not drop $600 on tires.

    Thank you so much! That is a ton of help. I was going to use everything you described, so the confirmation is great.

    I will! Question time: I ordered a keyless entry box and I'm trying to figure out what wiring diagram I should use. I have read the write-ups for the REC-43 keyless entry and that one is very simple with a power, ground, and an opening and closing sign wire that is spliced into the harness in the trunk. I found one on amazon for a bit cheaper with great reviews but it has more options than the REC-43, thus a more complicated wire harness. Here's the wiring options for it. There's different options for how your car is equipped; this is only showing the section of harness related to the lock/unlock signal. There is a separate 12v and ground for the box. I think I'm going to start with splicing the white (closing signal) and white/black (opening signal) into the correct wires in the car harness, unless someone reads this differently than I do.

    This one: Fitment was actually pretty good. I haven't clamped the two sections together yet and I'm a little skeptical if the provided clamps are big enough, but we'll see tonight.

    I agree. Much better than I was expecting. Will move forward with rebuilding it now.

    There is a mobile tint guy in the cedarburg area that did one of my old cars, and he'd remove the tint for about $120. Definitely worth it. In the meantime, exhaust back in including new eBay cat back. Got a subwoofer for the trunk to fill in some bass from the old speakers. Got the head off the donor engine and really happy with how the cylinder walls looked.

    Suspenceful's 2008 BSM 135i build thread!

    Is there an inside joke I'm missing here? Because damn, he just asked what people thought about his steering wheel.

    I'm assuming you mean the wheel stickers and not the people? Lol

    Because of the glue used for the tint? Any tips or tricks you can recommend? I was gonna go at it with a heat gun and just start peeling.

    Thanks for the offer, but it's on the chassis harness. Basically I need to find a parts car.

    I've always had a thing for wives that were my exact height and wives who are just a hair shorter. Couldn't make up my mind so I got one of each.

    Other than the exhaust a few small things in the engine, the big stuff is all done. Last few to do's are remote door lock thing install, new head unit that blends in better than the cheap one I got last year, would like to attempt to peel the tint off. Got some bmw center stickers And finally put my family stick people on it. Lol. Came free in a Road and Track magazine.

    Lol. Well, lots of credit to you for so much of the powder coating in there.

    Getting the engine almost all put togrther. Accidentally tossed out the radiator rubber mounts with the old radiator so waiting for new ones of those to finish that up.
