Anyone know if springs from an 2001 M3 vert will fit on a 2002 330Cic? Just the springs. Not the shocks.

Cruising Down Under

It's summer down here in Oz and today I was out cruising in my 330 'vert. It was blue sky, 27 degrees (Celsius) and no wind. I'm in Melbourne and I spotted a number of cabrios (BMs, Mercs, Saabs etc) on my travels, and I even got a wave from a guy in a SAAB. So chins up to all you guys in the Northern hemisphere, winter can't last forever!

Can anyone tell me how to remove the rear headrests, and also how to dismantle the front seats?
I'm trying to get my cinnamon project going, since I finally have some time on my hand.

You have to remove the back seat to get to the bolts

This will help you with the front seats..

On the rear headrests, I took mine off as part of a two tone project. I remember that there is a little release button you push in at the base of the headrest on one side....and then you pull them up really hard. You will have to use a lot of force, but they will come out.

Review: Micro Antenna from Bimmian

I bought a "micro" antenna from bimmian.com to (a) improve my AM reception, and (b) improve the looks of the car. Here's my impressions:
1) AM reception did improve. Not as good as I wanted it, but it IS better
2) Definitely like the looks (pic attached. Not sure why the pic is rotated, as I uploaded a vertical pic). Just turn your head sideways. :-)
3) Installation: very easy. The assorted screws provided all had something just slightly off, but I picked the best fit, used a hack saw to cut off the tiny bit extra, and the antenna fits just fine.

Overall I'd recommend the change. No personal interest in the product, website, or people whatsoever, just providing a PSA (public service announcement) to my VERT brethren.
