For Sale Z3 Carbon fibre induction kit SOLD

For sale an induction kit that I had fitted to my Z3 2.0ltr.

Re: Wing mirror removal

From memory you can dismantle the standard mirror by removing the glass to expose four screws, you're then able to unscrew them which releases the plastic casing from the metal core. You can then swivel it around to gain access to the Allen key heads.
