To achieve hydrophobic protection, Gtechniq I1 Smart Fabric Coat is highly recommended.

Seats are powered with memory

I should've mentioned that my seats are powered with memory.

Based on your input, I get the impression that I should still double check to see if the seat is wired for the lumbar switch.

I was specifically looking to get a vert and the e46 M3 was the runaway choice and by far the best package of value, performance and classic lines/look. Even with a model year of 2003, I've had...

One of the first mods I installed was a SSK and couldn't be happier with a much improved driving/shifting experience over the stock broom handle.

I would recommend the kit from Rogue Engineering....

Has anyone installed one of these convertible control modules. If so, how did you find the degree of DIY and usage results?

The features are exactly what's needed!

sub in ski pass

Can't go wrong with a sealed box and sub in the ski pass.

Link to a full write up of my install. After a few years, the system has been bullet proof and sounds as good from day 1.

tighten the bolts

Through the process of regularly lubing the joints for the top, I found there were loose bolts in and around the convertible top chassis points. Remember to check your bolts and tighten where needed.
