The spring that pushed the latch back foward on mine got stuck at the front once. might want to check that.

drooping is a common E36 prob. Look around on the FAQs, i think it has a solution for the drooping

ianrigg- Your little happy face is in the middle of your link to the droopy glovebox. The full link should have the document at ".html" not ".htm".

No mods - - - very happy as is!
