Re: Front Seat Lift Spacers

That looks nicely engineered avoiding high loading on a small area the problem with other versions, don't want any fractured floors!! Have you arrived at a price for 25mm ones? That said what is your suggested height, I know it's a personal one. Surprised no-one else has expressed interest.

Re: Meyle Front Wishbones and other parts

Meyle is OE quality stuff, Lemforder is another. I personally would use a trusted seller such as BMW Motormec, always found them helpful. Many use the 'M' version rear bushing with solid rubber as it is supposed to help control 'tram lining'. Avoid cheapo stuff, Meyle is excellent!

No roof switch under that trim, just an electrical connector block.

Under that rubber boot you will see a bolt, that bolt passes through into the trim you are wantin...
