If you want an 'M' again, then that sounds as good a one as you are going to get. If you decide that it is a disappointment, then I doubt you will have much problem selling it!

Re: What's a Z3M worth?

I think people are looking at coupe prices and assuming their roadster is worth the same. Anyone can ask what ever price they like, but whether someone is silly enough to pay that is another matter. When I bought Shantybeater's, I expected it to lose about £1k in value a year, plus another £1k for m...

Re: Intermittent EML...any ideas

+1 for Dashcommand and the ELM327. With an intermittent fault you can read the code, clear all error codes, and reset the light each time it comes on. You can then see if it is the same error code occurring each time without having to spend £60 to get it read.
