How about we add a side grille removal DIY and a side marker removal/replacement DIY instead of just that weird side marker delete DIY? I know they are out there, if not then I'll write one, I just won't have pics.

Just finished my M3 fuel filter change and already the idle smoothness has improved. If you haven't changed your filter recently I'd suggest it. The dirty fuel that came out of the filter was nasty!

Does anyone know how to replace the window switches on a m3 smg? I'm not sure on how to remove the smg cover surrounding the stick which houses the window switches.
