yup the car is still in the air...getting new Bendix Ceramic brakes on the front....

i also have wired in the heated seats while the car was apart


everything worked as if the factory installed it. When we put power to the compressor she started to inflate, and the HUD fired right up and i do NOT have a double image on the windshield

i took the car for a drive for the first time last night and the car is ALOT tighter in the suspension, i love it now, and the HUD is better than the HUD on the 03....

i will have pics once the car gets an alingment

it was a fun swap, and something i feel that is doable for a majority of the members here....if you have a FSM its cake....you will also need the parts car harness to make your life easier....but its worth the work to have cool features in a car that never had them

Rear looks a little high. And newer SLEs can have a HUD.

I'm gonna go measure my heights.
