Jean, at AA, came through. After a month of wait time, I'm finally getting it done. The install is this weekend, please PM me if you want to come by just to check out if you're local. My webcam is located at www.powercx.com/e46/

If you decide to chat with me, I probably won't get to it, at least not as fast since my hand will be dirty and I don't want my keyboard to get dirty.

Camera 2 and 3 is controllable, up and down, side to side, except the Night Vision Camera mounted to view the engine bay which is Camera 4.

Sound is available, and if there is too much people looking at it, there might be a lag. Streaming Sound, Video and Chat might bog down my home server. Handle with care. I'm on Pacific Time. Not sure when I'll be installing the S/C on Saturday, but standby.

It'll be recorded, but it will definitely be boring watching the install all over again. :)

Aw man... welcome to the club dude.. My install was finished today and I've been driving up until 10 minutes ago (it 23h30 here) I've used half a tank of gas already and I'm in heaven... adrenalin rushing through my veins... gonna pass out soon and sleep like the dead...I'm so spent from the rush of it.

I cannot explain how awesome the feeling and the SOUND is... don't believe all the "no nice blow off sound" blurb about charger... they have a very different and very deliciously evil sound

They have to pretty much make the thing, order parts and get it ready for me with a checklist. That's why it's a month after I order it. That's ok though, cuz it's perfect timing. The wife and kids is gone on vacation for a month, so I have a month to have fun. PM me on sunday, that's when it'll be broken in. I have Blackberry, so whenever I get a PM, it tells me I have a PM. I reply pretty fast.

No go on the tranny swap. I got a wife who can't drive stick, or she can drive stick willingly if I were to buy her BMW 650. I got an expensive wife, what can I say. I'll just have to save up to pay her to shut it, cuz I know she'll be complaining about how much money I spent on my other girlfriend (my car).

Hey powercx I noticed you had Auto software. Would you mind giving me your thoughts on the software. Is it worth the money any noticeable differences in acceleration??

Will be watching ya. Matter of fact get out of bed. I want to be entertained with bloody knuckles and bruised elbows. Have fun!!

Having trouble taking the fan off. I don't have the repair manual. Anyone here know how to take the fan off? It has a fan clutch, it's the engine fan.

Looks like I won't be done today. :(

Don't know if it's the same as the m3's, but it's reverse threaded.
