    On the E39, the fan completely stopped blowing air, regardless of the fan speed setting.
    On the E46, the fan speed would vary its speed up and down constantly for a few minutes in a very short time (higher, lower, higher, lower all within a couple of seconds). Eventually it would settle on the correct fan speed, but it took several minutes. Replacing the FSR fixed it.

    Yeah I'm not really sure why you would have sold that touring. It was perfect in every way, optioned exactly the way I'd want it, and with an M54B30 / 6-speed to boot. What were you thinking, man??????

    I'm going to have two M54B30's soon... just saying. Any chance you'd give it the Shawn treatment for a fee (of course)?
    One day, down the road, I'd like to put my ZHP's motor into this one after it's been rebuilt.

    I'm probably not going to bother posting pics. The beading is very disappointing. I don't know what product was used, but it's nowhere near as good as the products I use when it comes to the way it beads water. It definitely has some kind of sealant on there, I just wish I knew what it was.

    I'll probably be hitting the car up with Sonax Polymer Netshield one of these weekends to layer on top of whatever's there.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    I like the color as well.
    '03 325i sedan I found on CL, and '04 ZHP coupe recently I found here.
    Your interior beats up my hell-beige on my sedan.
    I fixed that same rust spot you got.
    Unless I can find a donor car that just needs a fresh automatic and do a swap...
    I've got it up for local sale after blowing out the #2 cylinder.
    I still seems to run half way decent at 60mph..though its not a good idea.

    Just caught up on your touring activities. Glad you decided not to move forward with the rust bucket. And I thought my car was bad!!!

    Love the wood grain/nat brown combo, my grandpa has a 2002 330xi (jet black) with the same interior and I love it, it feels so refined.
