I almost forgot, but about 10 days ago, I finally completed my hood conversion by installing the 2 missing wires that provides power to the LED on the hood open/close switch and the feed from the ZKE module (comfort close)
Of course I did as neat a job as I could by removing the front nearside seat, taking up the carpet and routing the wires through the car's existing loom.
I also ordered 2 reels of wire in suitably matching colour codes, thereby retaining the originality with the wiring diagram.
All went well, and now my hood closes on the ignition key.
I have also acquired another 328iSE with Climate control and on-board computer.
Over the coming week, I will be undertaking the daunting task of retrofitting climate control and computer to my convertible.
I will start another thread and keep you all posted.
Bye for now.
