    Interesting. Quite a lot of good info on their website. Gotta do a bit more research. Is this something a novice can potentially install? Resonance and rattling, as he describes it, is exactly what...

    Just finally snagged a new interior for the car. Anyone have any recommendations on sound deadening or creak/rattle muting while I’m removing the old seats and door panels? I’ve always wanted to see...

    Thank you guys. Guess I'll get a new one and try that out. I'll keep this thread posted with the results. Is the e46 one to get or the e39? Heard both work, but diff sounds.

    It’s new! Unless it’s defective. I installed it myself. It’s weird I can definitely hear it when I engage the alarm. But it’s for sure quieter than it should be.

    You still think it’s the actual...

    Can’t figure out my alarm situation for the life of me. The lock/unlock/alarm chimes are all low volume. I’ve changed the hood sensor, and it’s still low. It makes a sound audibly but it’s so quiet...

    I thought about it actually. Looked up flights, checked truck rental prices. Costs end up being pretty damn high, but time spent ends up even more.


    Agreed. I just need to make the guy feel like...

    Damn! I'm in a weird spot. Found a guy willing to sell me his full interior in the e̶a̶s̶t̶ ̶c̶o̶a̶s̶t̶ midwest, but really preferred to only sell local until I convinced him. Told him I'll have...

    I see. Thanks for this info. So for the seats, door panels and such—do I just order one large pallet and have them fit everything on there? Not sure what the guy is gonna do in terms of shipping...

    Has anyone ever dealt with shipping through uship, or getting a full interior from east coast to west? Have a lead on a set of cinnamon I need to setup shipping for to my city from them.

    I wish I did do it all myself, but my Indy just did my gaskets and vanos (got the kit from Beisan a month ago).

    I will probably attempt the m56 valve cover myself though!

    Just an update on this:
    Bought a used (cleaned) $40 OEM one for now until I find a good full-set m56 aluminum valve cover and then I'll replace it again then.

    Already got OEM gaskets anyway to...

    Yeah I saw. But they have a bad rap for the valve covers I guess. Based on the research I did Vaico’s was especially unreliable.

    hmm. Appreciate the insight. Probably wouldn’t be able to since my...

    Looked at this briefly but noticed there ends up being some weird situation with two caps or something? Not exactly sure but I know it goes on fine. Is this really the best route?
    Definitely!...
  17. Valve Cover Replacement -- Aftermarket or OE?

    I know the most obvious response is always "you can never really go wrong with OEM", and it's a rule I generally agree with, but I've been doing some research in figuring out what the best path is...
