First off, let me compliment because your car is beautiful!!!!

Since you posted pix of your seats, I have a quesiton: does the passenger seat comes with the occupancy sensor? If not, how did they bypass it to keep the SRS light off?

A occupancy sensor has been installed in the passenger seat. There was still a problem with the airbag light yesterday which can hopefully be fixed on time.

Is it an actual pad under the seat that sense when someone is sitted? Or a device that simulates the occupancy (it makes the computer think there is alsways someone sitting regardless)?

Alpina stopped producing the Roadster S at the end of 2005 after the Z4M, Coupe and facelifted roadster were introduced.

Excellent work Femme, now all you have to do is drive the hell out of it until you break something. That's how I decide what my next mod or upgrade should be! Love the seats by the way, I may break my own rule and fit them next, my seats are fine but I'm fed up sliding into the centre consol when I take high G right hand bends!
