    I kept reading you say "NBT retrofit" and didn't want to look like a noob asking what you meant; now I know!

    Check out the OP's profile and all the work he's done with his other vehicles. I think this car will be far from ruined while in his hands. MUCH IMPROVED is more like it.

    Don't worry, this car is going to made way awesome, even before Brandon gets his hands on it .

    Keep track of it in the E38 section thread as that one gets the updates first.

    Yes, Sir!

    I tried, but I may be too new to this board. Can't find in profile!
    I'm curious!

    You go through cars so quick it is hard to keep up! Can't wait to see those Arc 8's on an E38, never seen one with them before. Thanks for linking the build threads.

    Agreed. I obviously love them since I have them on my touring but when I saw .Tom.'s car pictured, I was sold on how they look mounted on the E38 as well and almost immediately ordered another set

    Thanks! I agree and feel that it's my favorite body style of all BMW's. I will definitely be keeping the M pars for cold weather driving.

    All the interior is being delivered to Brian (Redshift) with fibrenew who will be dyeing everything. Very excited to post some updates but he has other work in line too so might be a bit. I got the Alpina front lip. It's an eBay replica from Latvia but it looks very nice. Going to see if my body guy will consider removing the logo and making that smooth but that will depend on the cost..

    Michael, check the thread in the e38 section. This one doesn't really get updated.

    NBT is alive

There was a lot of reorganizing of the shop to do to make room for all these parts. The door panels come apart in so many pieces, and he needs them all separated to get the best dye coverage. Three huge folding tables later and an engine and other such stuff moved around and we had everything laid out. Took the plastics off the seats and door panels as well. I think Brian is going to get started on the parts this week, but it will take him a while to get through everything. I expect he'll post some updates here and there over the next couple weeks.

    Back in Charlotte, I got the round to flat pin cable from Brandon that he got for the old e38 and was able to get the NBT fired up.



    I was kind of freaking out when the amp wasn't outputting any sound, but I forgot that I needed to code it to MID_basis so that it doesn't cut out after 5 seconds due to the old head unit being removed. Quick NCS Expert session and that was fixed.

    His is a Euro NBT, so it doesn't have SiriusXM or HDRadio, but all the other functions work great (so far, but haven't tried nav since the car has no seats ). I tried hooking my phone up by Bluetooth and having the antenna on top of the parcel shelf, but under the trim should have great reception, which was important because I think Brandon plans to pretty much use his phone by bluetooth exclusively. Traffic over the FM antenna seems to also be working properly, though it's not nearly as good as Waze.

    Thanks! Much of the panels are fastened with nuts but some pieces will need to be plastic welded back together. Brian with Fibrenew is doing all of that.

    I have ordered all the OE parts that needed attention

    black floor mats
    CPS
    ABS sensor
    cowl panel
    engine bay rubber seals
    C pillar/drip rail trim with new rubber

    E38 door panels are extremely modular. You can mix and match colors in all sorts of combos.
