One Touch rear window switch mod done today. Haven't done anything large or fun lately. Just usual cleaning and inspection. This is pretty easy, take it apart and trim the "limit ridge" on the switch. Used a dremel for this. Also had the windows reprogrammed a while ago for this feature. Hmm, not sure if I like how it really compress' to the maximum limit the Coupe quarter glass against the rubber gasket in "one touch" mode. I have a strange feeling the next mod will have to be that 1/4 window rubber gasket in time. It really pulls it in by the motor.
Until then I will release the tension on the rubber by moving it out a tad bit after it auto closes.

I love your car. Just wondering, what brand is your CSL trunk? Also what kind of head unit do you have? I was thinking of Eonon or Dynavin

thanks for the kind words.
Vorsteiner CSL which i guess this model was discontined as it was too exact a copy of the real CSL all the way down to the part number and BMW embossed lettering.
it's a early version Dynavin, but i was one of the very first buyers in the USA when they were coming out. can't say which is better now as they've come a long way since then.

Picked up a set of ZCP exclusive "Alu Tec" trim. it's an aluminum trim for the M3 coupes that has a etched finish and texture that's hard to capture in photos.

Alex, this trim is pretty hard to source. Great grab! I love this interior trim

to go with the new swaybars it only seems logical to update/upgrade to new sway bar end links. so new oem Lemforder for the rears and upgraded Meyle HD for the fronts.
the Meyle HD have a larger 22mm diameter balljoint, that's also reinforced. much stronger and heck they even match the colors of my Bilstein PSS9s exactly

suspension upgrade May 2014

also in the box of goodies i ordered new oem Lemforder complete innner and outter tie rod assemblies. i didn't want to just do the outter tie rods and not the inside ones if it has potential for play. i should have replaced all with new when i installed the CSL/ZCP steering rack. so now it's time to make everything as tight as possible.
new Febi/Bilstein steering rack boots too.
(i know nothing glamorous to see, but sometimes what's replaced isn't about show but better suspension)
