Pinned  BMWCCA Ofest 2014 - a FAQer field report

Jun 20 2014 09:40 AM | visionaut in Events

So I made it to Oktoberfest 2014, which this year was held relatively nearby to Denver, in Beaver Creek, CO. I was just a minor participant - only attending the Pirelli Concours event on Tuesday as a Display-only (non-judged) car, and also appearing in the Bimmers On Broadway street-show event held in Eagle, CO on Wednesday afternoon. It was great escape to be able to attend a bit of OFest, and also get in some nice fishing/hiking/skating/partying in next-door Vail, CO. I had a fun time, and there were some really nice cars, and car owners, in attendance. Good stuff.

Remote Trunk Release Using Off-the-shelf parts

Feb 02 2014 08:52 AM | im3crazy in Body and Interior

This article documents my approach to installing a remote trunk release using off-the-shelf parts.

My objective was to provide my newly installed alarm with a reliable way to open the trunk from the remote. I wanted to use commonly avialble parts, and did not want to make any major structural changes to the vehicle. Any adaptation I did had to be reversible. Additionally I wanted to install a trunk lid sensor to detect entry.
