    fans may've helped mileage slightly, my drive cycle changes just enough to vary it a mpg or so, but its trending up .5 or so maybe, sooooooo nice to have consistent acceleration on a 97-99 degree drive home without the roaring fan, also doesn't drift up during extended idling but i have yet to hear the fans kick into high

    started headliner project and did the front section (tourings have a 4 piece headliners vs the one piece board of a sedan) epoxied a piece of wood into the hatch to eliminate the always crap falling out panel that never fits right with aftermarket headlining material, made a hole to access the screw in event of motor failure, to replace the motor its easy enough to just take the header out. swapped in a rear light cargo area single switch dual bulb light for the standard map light style dome light.
    not wild about the color but its better then the flapping original, i can spray dye it but that would give it the texture of sand paper, i do plan to spray the sunroof panels to match, may spray the visors to match, haven't decided.
    the wrinkles seen in the fresh pics are gone the next day

    Looking good. The timber blank does nail that old chestnut fairly squarely. You can fix the e34 map+dome light, but probably best to retrofit an e39/e46 lamp or the like instead. Nothing like practical fixes like this on design issues that invariably result in ongoing PITA problems!
