Today I installed the new steering wheel and the new centre console with armrest. If it wasn't for the crappy seat covers and front door trims it would be looking pretty good in there. The car also got a wash and wax.

I managed to get a few more parts today, most importantly a new steering wheel, and a new centre console with leather armrest (at a bargain price).

Finally got the car back from the auto trans place. This transmission is better - drives well in forward gears - but reverse is slow to engage.

The car has been with the auto transmission specialists since last Tuesday and two days ago they told me the new (used) transmission needs replacing.

I drove the car to work today and the transmission became a bit of a problem, finally resulting in the transmission fault light coming on and being stuck in 3rd gear (limp home mode presumably).

Just when I thought the worst was over, things got worse.
I am a bit of a 3 series fanatic, having owned a couple of E30s and a few E36s, plus a few parts cars. I like the combination of the compact size, good performance and handling, and that they are more sports sedan than an impractical and extrovert sports car. This blog is a place to share my experience and knowledge.
