They fit perfectly with no knocking or rubbing. The car rode beautifully on them to be honest. Looked damn nice too.

Selling due to selling my Z. £400 http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b520/danllewsmith/Mobile%20Uploads...

Re: Fan going constantly

I have this as an intermittent fault with my M54... sometimes it starts and the fan is as you say "free wheeling" and sometimes loud when idling and louder and louder with revs. even if car is cold/hot it is honestly random. help?

Re: Wheel width query

what are the legal guidelines on wheel protrusion? there is a bit of a gap between my current wheels and the edge of the arch... could the 45mm extra simply fill this?

and as a 8.5j fits the back my 8j should fly on :)

Re: Exhaust Question

Did it this afternoon and I am chuffed! A slightly deeper note and a nicer noise up to 3500 as now it doesn't have a rasping valve!

Are the tail pipes removable for a good clean on the stick exhaust?

Exhaust Question

I have a stock exhaust on my 3.0 Z3, and I see no real reason to upgrade as the noise is lovely at high revs and quiet and domestic at low speed. However is there anyway to disable the valve that keeps it quiet? the valve that you can hear open between 2800 and 3300 RPM? Any help would be much appre...
