After 24 hours, I removed the clamps and tape from the passenger side door trim - and it still holds

Prepped trim with wire wheel and dremel to remove all - and I mean all - of the old glue (previous owner) and to rough up the surface. Used Liquid Nails 1 adhesive to bond it all together... Fingers crossed....

How much did you pay, I've been looking for a set on eBay.

These things should come stock on all cars.
They are the cheaper ones not heated and I bought it off an ebay type site here in Poland. Came to $27 shipped. I'll post a pic when I get them which is most likely tomorrow.

Hate to blow this thread up with a bunch of posts, but im new and cant find the value for these. Its a double din faceplate with steel adapter and then some kind of trunk mount that goes with it? Ive seen the bezel/faceplate with the steel adapter together on Ebay for $200-300 alone. They're brand new.

Be greatful if you get $50 for the set.

Nobody really needs the trunk mount.

Thanks guys. I understand the 2 things in the picture on the left are for inside the car to hold in the head unit, but what is that trunk mount thing for?

Gave the E46 a wash yesterday, been a while since..





And today, I ordered new upper and lower intake boots from TheBMWPartStore, as well as OEM Front Strut Reinforcement Plates. New OEM FSM's + Meyle HD control arms w/ bushings will be ordered from OEMBimmerparts soon, and then I'll have everything I need for my suspension overhaul (already have ST coilovers, Meyle HD RSM's w/ Z3 reinforcement plates, and Meyle HD RTAB's ready to be installed). The upper & lower intake boots were just a bit overdue and I decided to include them in my order. Excited!
