If you want to buy new tires real soon go ahead and replace the FCAB's without an alignment. In fact just drive 200 miles, and I'm sure your local tire dealer of choice will love you...

:( - received wrong clip

I'm still looking for one of these. The clip I received, while it looked similar was black and wouldn't fit in the square hole correctly.

Still looking! :thumbup:

BUMP!

In my time with E46's I've only seen one. When I was looking to buy my car I did drive a manual 6-speed, with manual seats, and a sedan with no moonroof.

There is at least one in the Seattle area.
