Received 2 used diamond e46 keys yesterday and began to pull them apart to do the DIY to replace my old style key with the diamond one. Just waiting on the uncut diamond key shell I ordered, to have it cut and transfer over the circuit board. Then I will have 2 working diamond keys for my '99 bimmer

Replaced the stock exhaust from the headers back with a new stainless steel Magnaflow. What a HUGE difference in sound, it's pretty mean now
