Got bored yesterday and decided to try out some F11 Top Coat polish and sealer that my buddy gave me a while back. I have to say, I'm impressed with how well it performs for a 2 in 1 type product; Water is beading nicely, the jet black paint has way more depth, and it looks to have removed some of the light water spots I had on the roof.

I figured this will hold me off until I have the time (and place) to do a full correction and ceramic coating. I live in an apartment and haven't figured out a way to polish my car in the parking garage yet, so anything in a bottle that I can spray on without power tools, will have to do for the time being.

Here are some pics:

Question for the 128i owners who have the performance SSK shifter, is this the one you guys have?

Took the carbon steering wheel out of my 128i & I talked it on the 135i & warped the original trim of the 128i in mate black, since it was peeling off.

I didn't take off what was left of the original vinyl, it's visible. But it's an "ok" jobs since it looked horrible & im selling the car so I'm not worried about it.

Yep


Today I fixed some wind noise. Previous owner had a new window regulator installed. Guess the window sagged a little bit and the back of it didn't press against the seal totally. Pulled it up and tightened the screw, fixed it.

This morning, on the way to the office, my AT shift wiring finally broke
Had a good run, made it to 97,400 miles.

Time to go hunt down the repair details & see if it's a "tonight" fix, or a "this weekend" fix...
hoping for tonight, already miss my paddles!

So you only lose sport mode and paddles?

Please report back on how much difficult it is to pull the trim. I'm debating preemptively re-routing my wiring. But I've read somewhere that in later models (mine is 2013) they fixed the tight wiring problem.

Thank you, did you also install an improved DSSR or is this overkill?

Can this be done from the inside of the car or preferably from the bottom?
