  1. My trunk smells like gas even though I've adequately vented my fuel tank. I think it's due to excess fuel pressure from my problematic Megasquirt system. One of the things I need to address before doing AC. For the pickup, I think enlarging the vent tube area on one of the sides would be ideal. You could cut a hole in the side of the bench seat and the rear door card allowing a space for ducting to run into the cabin. Then, mount the pickup vent at the feet area below the rear passenger bench seat. There is a small gap between the bench seat and the frame rail in this area, but I don't think there is enough room and you would need to modify the structure of the bench in this region to make this work. I would also consider splitting the pickup vent, routing air ducts through both vent tube holes, and source an OEM vent that could replace the ashtray on each rear door card. Clean and easier than modifying the interior pieces. This is a cool project! Hoping to hear this works for you.
  2. Yoko S-drives 195/50r15 up front and 205/50r15 rears. HR springs, I put a 1/4 spacer on the rear spring perch and the rears still rubbed a little. No rolling. Front rubbed occasionally but no longer. Rub went away eventually on the rears too, but to have rear passengers I either need another spacer or put 195's. 1500 miles or so in. Weds Bavaria 15x7 wheels, unknown ET very small spacer up front to clear strut.

    Interesting Fog Light set-up

    The corner placement is interesting- I also have rectangle lower fogs as, to me, the logic made sense. I have a switch on top of the steering column which turns on the upper fogs with the high-beams, and a pull switch for the lower fogs in place of the dummy switch by the gauges. The upper fogs project a wide, narrow band of light and the lowers are more fill.

    door gasket install

    A windshield installer inadvertently left this tool behind after installing the windshield in my 2002. I used it to install the door seals, rear window and rear window seals; it made the job a piece of cake. https://www.equalizer.com/Products/ProductDetail/822

    Cross Country Trip tool bag

    I've always dreamed of using a "space saver" spare in the trunk vs. a full size spare, and using the extra space to place a custom plastic organizer under which I can store a proper jack, spares, tools, etc. Still plan on doing this at some point!

    Wideband recommendation?

    Was just fiddling with my MTX-L yesterday. I am also using a Heat Sink spacer on mine, I listened to the exhaust shop instead of the instructions and allowed them to install a shorter bung which stuck the sensor deeper into the exhaust. Not necessary and caused the Bosch sensor to overheat. I like the 02 sensors with the gauges as (if you're using megasquirt or an ECU) you can check that the output voltage is being properly read by the ecu. In my case I needed to adjust the AFR voltage table in Tuner Studio so that the megasquirt read the same AFR as the gauge. The gauge is the accurate number.

    Thanks dude! La Jolla had the screw covers on the shelf, just $7 a pop. Also ordered the plugs while I was at it.

    Did I'll try La Jolla Independent, thanks for the tip! And such a pain to find some little piece. Apparently they got pretty brittle with age, yup NLA. Ahh a blind plug! I had no idea what the technical term for it was. That part number is for a 7mm blind plug, but is actually a big help because I measured the hole and it looks like 20mm. Googles 20mm blind plug and.... https://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-116232-51711801066-genuine-bmw-part/?gclid=CjwKCAjw75HWBRAwEiwAdzefxJ4GKvYAWbYj4su_FJ4VmU7w4z6FY9zKEsyrFfp84oAicKP-yG6yzBoCrk4QAvD_BwE PN 51711801066 Thanks! Just the screw covers now.

    Hi All, I'm looking for a pair of the plastic pieces which go on the vent window latches, screw covers. Anyone have an extra set? Also in need of some rubber body caps, specifically: 4 (total) rubber plugs which go into the rear shock tower (located inside the wheel wells) and (1) body plug which goes on the floor, underneath the rear bench. It's on the driver side I believe. Thank you! Kyle

    rogers tii feedback

    A lot has been said here. In my experience RogersTii is a good seller and I never through twice about the service. Phone/email has all been good. In fact, he sells a Cad-plated bolt kit for the doors hood and trunk which was awesome (and convenient) when I put together my car after repaint. Like anything, when you're buying obscure parts you may need to shop around. I like that his website has pictures of the products too. All this said: in my experience Dave at Aardvarc Racing and Steve at Bluntech are tremendously helpful and the best sellers I've worked with. A+

    Great Aftermarket Door Panel Clips

    I think 26 are required for both doors. But definitely order spares if the door panel is being attached in an altered state. The green ones are pretty brittle in my experience and if the panel is new or reupholstered it may take some force to fit perfect.

    WTB Body Grommets, Interior Plastic Pieces

    Touche- I haven't been back at my garage in the last week but when I do next I'll take a closer look at the seatbelts. Guy may have me for the seat caps. Apparently the hinge plastic pieces are NLA though, so still on the lookout for a pair. Thanks! lol I'm not so sure about the James May headliner, but it looks like the install was well done!
