We got our Holden airbag, too. No more physical bowties anywhere on the car!

Also have an Aussie silverbox waiting to go in. Need to figure out what kind of mic I need to make bluetooth work, and buy a camera for it.

Then I just need to get the center support and a traction control button so we can do the whole console swap and radio swap all in one go.

Got rid of my steelies. Traded them for some BMW wheels. Programmed a new set of TPMS Sensors, so I won't have to worry about fooling around with them for a while. My wife thinks the BMW center caps are ridiculous, but I think it's too funny.

You watch, now the unexplained mechanical failures and maintenance issues will take over & possess your car. "Broke More than Working".

Heh. :lol: :lol: :lol:

That's great. You're right. I should expect the VANOS codes to appear and brake pads to wear out. (This may only be funny to guys that work on BMWs though)

I believe it is also now my duty to drive slow in the left lane.

Not mine, but my fathers car.

Some Hot Wheels 21's. All four are rears, 9.5in wide I believe.

This is just a test fit, waiting on a pair of 305/30/21 tires to arrive.

Drove to NYC, Queens to be exact, and back home. It’s amazing to see the left lane become all yours! NJS, did use these cars, not a lot of them but did see them occasionally on I78 and 287.

Car drives great but can’t figure out the loose drifty feel I get at speeds over 70.
