      I have pictures - I just haven't had a chance to review, resize, upload, and post them yet.

      You're doing it wrong. ;)

      The factory HU, as you found out, doesn't have 'key on' power to it at all. Instead, it's turned on (and off) by a bus signal.
      The truly 'right' way to do this...

      I have a Kenwood KDC-X996 that has a 13-band EQ.
      Kenwood's latest vesion (the KDC-X998) still has it, too.

      BTW: I absolutely :heart: my -X996.

      You do realize that this subframe (as are ALL BMW front subframes) is solidly bolted to the body, don't you? There is no rubber mounting here. ;)

      I have to agree with that.
      Mine's made the trip three times now. Never an issue. Never caravanned there (usually do on the way home - but, that's just the logistics of it.) I'm 260 miles from...

      That's funny. Das Katie was thinking about prodding me to actually take that Friday off (gasp!), and visit that very museum on the way down.
      Hmmm......

      Well, a K bar is a 4-point bar.... ;)
      I believe Techtonics still sells a 4-point bar (last I looked, it looks exactly like a K bar.)
      Maybe BFI, too? (they'd be a likely suspect.)

      No, I don't think it's overkill. FWIW, VW didn't think it was overkill, either.....

      You already said the difference: 2-point bar attaches at 2 points; a 4-point bar, at 4. ;)

      Two-point: just ties the front mounting points for the control arms together.

      NO. If you're using a click-type torque wrench, you'll damage the wrench.

      I'll be making some changes. The right side (as you look at it) is about 3.5" lower than the main section. I'll be raising it, so the entire deck is at the same height.

      That's why you failed - the car hasn't completed all of its "readiness checks" yet. Needs to be driven more.
