I am going to tune it this summer though.
Whats the throttle response on a smaller engine like that?
Yeah, you'll have more torque. As for gas mileage, it's alright...I get around 20-22MPG even though the OBC keeps telling me I'm getting 18. The throttle response is pretty nice...it's sensitive but not too sensitive. It could be better since the E36 was rather heavy compared to the E30, but it's not bad.

That means when you put the gear shift selector plate, you didn't realign the indicator with the gear shift stalk itself so that it'll move around by itself when you're in drive per se.

As for those tape things, generally they shouldn't get static unless the wiring is loosened or the plastic tape read head has dust on it. Usually the dust problem is solvable by just ejecting it, then blowing the dust out just like the old cartridge based consoles of old.

If it's like the Focus there's a little trick you can do (assuming that you're just having trouble knowing what gear you are in)

Foot on the brake, pull it out of park to reverse, then you can let go of the button and slide it down until it stops... that's D. If you need to go back into reverse you don't even need to press the button, just slide it up until it stops (neutral), then up one more notch. I never have to look at mine any more to know what gear I'm in, it's very nifty.

If it is just bothering you just because, you just gotta take it apart and put it back together correctly.

If you want to spend the money, I would get a sterio that supports ipod input, it will have better sound than stock as well, and look cooler in your car.
