Without admitting as much, I believe you can sum his response up as yes, there have been problems with their kits before and they've worked to resolve them, but going to another shop essentially voided the warranty.

The part that I think a few people are hung up over is that there used to be a relationship there, but it disintegrated. So the lesson once again is, never assume.

I do like the fact that they srsed in those last couple of vids just a little instead of the usual 100% marketing spew. It's gets to be a bit patronizing in a forum where people expect data instead of glitter and charm.

The cost of picking cotton are not what they used to be.

hai guys
so... i'm thinking about doing a m3/zhp steering wheel swap into my 325i
is everything just plug and play? anything i have to be aware of?
not trying to get the paddle shifters

also... would m3 seats be just plug and play in the 325i as well?

don't know why but i'm getting the mod bug these days to refresh my interior

i helped Jacobo change from a sport wheel to an M3 wheel with paddles and wired up the paddles.

i'm not sure the square to round airbag is PnP, but i'd bet money on it being PnP.

if you have the round airbag already it's a quick job.
