Re: Onboard monitor - OEM?

Thanks all for you inputs!! I'm heading to the Android unit route. :D In terms of the originality issue - I'd just stick with the Alpina essentials i.e. engine, tranny, etc. That being said, I just got the trifecta lights the other day and popped out a code 211 and some more pointing to the VANOS an...

Re: Onboard monitor - OEM?

Give Baris at http://www.carphonics.co.uk/default.htm a call. He sorted my complete setup for a few hundred pounds. Now even the digital TV tuner works. Thanks, Rave. I'll check with them. ed to match BMW look/feel/buttons etc so most people think that it's OEM from a distance. Charles, I'm looking...

Onboard monitor - OEM?

The OBM on my B3S has died. Won’t power up anymore.

Re: ZF 5 HP 19 torque converter.

Quick potted history of the biggies: Fully rebuilt the engine at 180k (probably not necessary but marked my decision to switch my custom to an expert Indie due to poor decisions from a main dealer) Gearbox refurbished at 190k (due to age) and 255k (due to cracked drum) Various HG changes every 80 -...

Re: ZF 5 HP 19 torque converter.

re my Sept '01 E46 B3 cabrio #128. In going back through the advice offered to Avtar in his recent purchase I noted that simon13 said the torque converter starts to go at around 80,000. I'm about to pass the landmark 100,000 and I'd never thought about it before. Lo and behold, I'm starting to sens...

E46 B3S Coupe Seats

Hi

Do you know if it's still possible to source genuine Alpina upholstery for the front seats?
