Yeah, I'd say it works. It depends on which way I park; toward or away from the sun. The windshield sunshade will block the light, especially from the black leather seats, making it MUCH cooler if you're wearing shorts (or if the girlfriend is wearing a dress!). We need all the help we can get against heat in Texas!!

Attempted to install d2 coilovers but the diameter of the strut housing was too big and it wouldn't fit in the knuckle. The backs look good though

Washed the touring and the vert, including giving the vert's top a thorough cleaning -- will treat the top with RaggTop water proofing treatment after it dries.

Hmmm how long did that take? Do you feel like doing it for me by any chance? I'd be more than happy to shoot you some coin for your trouble...

Ah, didn't notice you're from Ontario

It took a while to program because I was getting used to the program for the first time and deciding what options I like. If you know what you want, it shouldn't take longer then literally 10 minutes.

Wow that's cool, Yeah I know what I want and I'm just north of Barrie, so only an hour away. I have to come down to Toronto to get my new headers installed and the Mark D chip and tune.

Any idea how much the install will run you? I've been thinking of picking up some headers from BimmerBrakes. I'm usually in the Brampton area, if you're nearby I wouldn't mind helping you out with the coding.
