Did you replace your SRS module with one from an M54 sedan? Not very safe to drive with the wrong airbag/module combo.

Is this necessary for anyone who swaps from square airbag to round sport airbag/wheel?

Only for those with 323/328 that make the swap. If you have a 325 with the rectangular airbag it's a direct swap.

Just did this in mine and it is hands down my favorite modification yet. I love the way it feels in my hands. The thought of driving my BMW is exciting again.

I purchased a used wheel so it matches the interior of my 330i. Installation took about a half hour. I initially plugged in my airbag wrong and the light wouldn't go away with my PA Soft tool until I reinstalled it.

Just bought a cut/polish kit for my car. I plan on getting it shiny enough to shave with a straight blade using the hood for a mirror.



25% off was too much to pass up.

It's true, driving the car FEELS different all over again, and I never noticed that the 4 post wheel bothered me so much as the three poster just flies through the hands. Add the two tone wheel skin (kind of tacky but so am I) plus cf lower and emblem and its quite a difference.

My only hitch was that the horn was stuck on when I first did it, took it back off and twiddled with it until it stopped but niw it's kind if hard to make it go off.... I guess I'll fiddle with it again at some point but.. Well worth it.

I did what I have been putting off since last June, I replaced the vanos seals along with the vanos rattle repair kit from Beisan Systems. Wow... what a big difference these kits make to my 325i. The instructions on their website made this daunting task a breeze.

Also, I had my rear wheel bearings replaced two weeks ago.
