Ha, I ended up ordering a silver start button after all those posts. Going to try it out with aluminum trim, hopefully it doesn't look odd.
Will post a pic if it ever comes in the mail.

Side note, they are not chrome/shiny as the box (from Bilstein) and the ad show. Though since they're not visible I don't care. Just a warning to those who might.

B14 is a coilover, B12 isn't.

It's basically the height adjustability that I was after

Not too much drone, still quiet I find myself now really cruising to hear the exhaust and those burples and low grumbles at the light on down shifts ... as for the up revs no improvement until perhaps intake and and tune... other then that completely satisfied I've even caught some occasional onlookers

Nox Sensor thread size?

Hope it's ok asking in this thread? I bought a replacement Nox sensor online (genuine BMW / Continental part) and brought it to a local BMW specialist to have it fitted. He was unable to fit it saying the thread size was different from the one on my car compared to the replacement one i'd bought.
7 587 130 04 = the one alread in my car
7 587 130 05 = the one I have bought as replacement
Does anyone know if this is correct - was there a thread size change between these ?
Amny thanks, Phil

Took out the downpipe fix that was in the car for over a year without me or the last owner knowing. Cars on stock downpipes. Finally fixed all my o2 sensor issues. Shouldve checked if one was installed much sooner

Made a backup of my idrive hard drive. If that thing dies then a replacement will be easy.

Installed my rear deck sun shade... After having it sit in the garage for a year.
Sadly the motor was bad and I tried to repair it, gorilla glue did not hold. A pin through the stud wouldíve worked but I was tired of messing with it, so Iíll just manually roll it up.

Fixed a bolt through the shade base so the arms could still move.
Also the tab i put to pull it up looks hideous. I can pull it up from the sides with no tab.

Also had to paint the very back plastic black. Up until today, that parts had never crossed my mind.

Got the fronts in and slotted the strut towers while I was at it. (Has to take the back half apart to fix a mistake. Having done so I'm getting pretty fast.)
