    Long story which I will cut short. I want to change the ECU, EWS and locks on my 330d, so far so good there are a few kits out there but I'm doing it on the cheap and the kit I'm likely to buy has everything I need excluding the driver's lock barrel. Has anyone ever built one of these barrels...
