I'll keep an eye out. I also recently bought an entire hitch including the bumper carrier and electronics...but I might not install it after all...so might just have to list it.

Is it just a dead fan? easiest way to test is pull the sensor wire on the AC right on the frame rail with the AC on, if the fan doesnt come on, its dead.
I normally wont recommend EBAY parts, but this one is a big enough savings that it was worth the risk for me, 3+yrs ago and still going strong

Well...... I would say HELL MONTH is over.... but not sure yet

First of the month on a sunday night 3am after a race weekend at Road America, water pump went POOF between my buddies house and mine.... never got hot so....
205K miles so, you know the drill, its gettting most all the cooling parts. didnt order the 2 idler pullies as they were replaced 6yrs ago?
Monday after ordering parts, get a lift to go get the Z4 out of storage, that sunday Alternator goes pop, takes out my radio once I over night the regulator from FCP as no one had a VR in detroit.
Go to put cooling system back together and find the tensioner pulley have just enough play in the bearing that #&*#$ oh well, I will order both and just be done.... Package shows up Sat, minus one of the pulleys... WTF
Now its had an oil leak that has gotten big enough that I have needed to get into it to figure it out as its not the valve cover... could have sworn I did an OFH, but that could have been on the M3... Pulled it all apart since I had the parts in stock, doesnt look like it was but gave me lots of access to clean the CRUD off the motor.

Cooling system is all back together finally, UV DYE went in the oil and now to let it get good and dark to see if I can see anything glowing....
GOD I HATE CARS SOME TIMES

I thought a ballast went out, but after pulling the bumper off to pull the headlight housing, it was the bulb. Boo and whatever. Now I know my headlights will work after replacing both. I will say it was not as hard as I thought it was going to be. And hear at the pics of the 4.6 exhaust. Itís a lot quieter then the 4.4 exhaust, for sure. Name:  IMG_3538.jpg

.......
Do you mean the two sliding sunshades? or do you mean the whole headliner.

If the former, where did you get the sunshades? or did you have them re-done?

I upgraded my Resler iBus interface to the new Resler iBus module. It has some new features and was simply a 10 min job to pull the head unit back and swap out the modules. It has some great new features like folding mirrors on key lock/unlock commands and coming home lights programming.

How old was the one you replaced? Mine will open and close mirrors on start and stop, not unlock and lock and it has coming home lights programming.
