    Recaro seat option in Alpina B10s

    Check out this pic of the underside of a Recaro seat from a Mini. Looks suspiciously like the E39 facelift plug
  2. A set of ultra rare Birch Anthracite trim. No gear knob, from a car with nav so no flap. PM if interested.

    E90 335i - which one?

    Considering p/xing the 540 for a 335i but don't know much about them. I know that in 2009 BMW swapped the twin turbo N54 with the single turbo N55...do early N54s suffer with issues? Was the N55 any better? Apparently early cars came with an amp which was dropped? Some cars have a mix of LCI and pre-LCI features ??

    Retrofit rear heated seats E61

    That's good to know, thanks I already have the 12v sockets, so can I take the power from them and run inline fuses? No other parts yet. Finding a heated rear bench is probably gonna be a pita I assume the circuit is independent of any other circuit in the car apart from the power?
  9. Time for the next project. Retrofitting rear heated seats to an E61. Any links to retrofit threads?
  10. Not even 100k but the seat looks like it's done 300k? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153923600018
  11. Can't people discuss and arrange sales to take place in the future?
  12. DSP Amp Equaliser and Climate Panel reset themselves everytime I leave the car with ignition off. Tone is remembered...station presets remembered.... Climate always starts at 16 degrees. Strange one
  13. Since I returned to the forum after a hiatus the cars for sale section has packed it's bags. Where are people selling their cars now?
