In Reply to: Got my M Coupe -- have some questions posted by Josh Sirota on September 30, 1998 at 23:16:14:

: Hey everyone,

: I posted this message to the BMW digest today, and learned about this site (and got some good answers to some questions!) But I'll also post it here:

: Just picked up my M Coupe today! I have some questions for those of you who
: have paid a lot more attention than me to this mailing list :-)

: 1. Any of you M Roadster owners figure out what gauge is available for that
: center spot where they want to put the passenger airbag disable switch, how much
: they cost, and how to install it?

Voltmeter to be installed by dealer at no charge on a later date.

: 2. What can I replace the cassette holder in the center console with?

: Cupholders? A little bin? I'm not going to be listening to cassettes, so I'd
: like that spot to contain something useful.

Dealer will swap for free on request

: 3. How do I remove the airbag warning sticker from the glove box cover without
: trashing the whole area?

I used Goof Off for the decals on the visors and glove box.

: 4. Where would the CD changer go? Or, does anyone know if I can replace the
: stock H-K head unit with the in-dash one that's now a factory option but wasn't
: when I ordered? Part numbers?

Since the coupe doesn't have a boot/trunk I haven't a clue.

: 5. Does the nifty Da'lan trailer hitch with the vertical, hidden receiver fit on
: the M Coupe/Roadster, or only on the basic Z3s with a single muffler?

None available for the ///M yet, standard Z3 hidden hitch should work on the 2.8 coupe though.

6. Why don't these things have their own "E" number? Yes, they are an E36 front
: end, but they are more like an E30 rear end. Seems like the Z3 and derivatives
: (and for that matter, the 318ti) aren't true E36 cars, so why share the chassis
: number?
We do. Z3 are e36/7, I'll guess that the coupe is e36/8

: 7. Anyone else got one yet?

: Thanks for any help! 24 miles and counting ...
