I will try changing the second sensor.

However, does anyone know whether the DSC unit from an E46 M3 will fit directly to my 330ci -03 (facelift)? Not sure about the exact model year of the M3.

Great looking car, and the photos are just out of this world! I'd love to get my hands on an E30 someday. :) I'd add a M-tech rear trunk lip however, just to finish it off! ;)
