Does that allow you to turn on a certain fog light only? What's the other dial to the right of the fade dial?

Got it installed. Still have to code it, though.

It's the European headlight switch. Fog buttons are to control front and rear fogs. The right dial is a level adjuster. I have xenons with AFS, so it's not needed, but I can code it to work via the dial if I want to.

Delmarco has a thread on the rear fogs somewhere.

My Ride: Imola ZHP
Came home excited to (expect) to find my cup kit on the front porch, nope, just a note from UPS saying "The sender required a signature at the time of delivery," "Will try again tomorrow from 10:30-2pm." Emailed the seller to see if they could "lift" the signature requirement and he states that they never ship anything signature required. Ugh, what a PITA, so I have to just have them keep it at a facility and go get it, the closest one is at least 20 minutes away. I live in a very safe neighborhood, they should have just left it on the porch...

This will certainly be in my review once installed...

I HATE when this happens. No I don't sit home all day waiting for my package! I always ask "Please do not require signature" in the special instructions for the order.

Got my replacement speaker from ECS today and put that thing in. Thanks ECS for taking care of my problem. Now on another note, does anyone know what this is for? I found it under my driver seat the other day. I remember seeing it on the forums one day but don't know what it is so I can look it up.

Looks like the fastener for an electrical clip:



I hope something doesn't come loose! The one above is for the thermostat.

Is that the Z4 3.0 lever for the short shift conversion? Let me know how yours comes out, cause I did mine the other night and still have mixed feelings about it. Puts the shift knob really close to the trim...

New rear window regulator installed. My first DIY fix project and it went very smooth thanks to the great instructions found on this site. Took a little over an hour and I was really happy (so was my fiance) when I put it all back together and it worked!!

Yes Z4 3.0 lever... Do you have a Sedan or coupe? The sedans don't fit like the coupes do. With it on the sedan, you have to physically bend it to make it fit without hitting the shift bezel.

Edit: I see you have a coupe... Idk, I see it's close to the bezel, but IDK, I'll post pics on sunday when I install.
