piggie's z3c

Post by pinkpiggy » Fri 06 Nov, 2015 18:15

Hello guys,
this is my "golddigger" z3c. There is still very much work to be done, i am owner exactly 320 days.

I wanted to wait for buy another 2-5years, but there was one for very good price in my country so i decided to buy it and work on it. Even if i bought some more "expensive" i could do some modifications and repairs, so i thought this would be better to buy this, repair it and atleast i would know whats ok and what is not ok.

For now, there is actualy done:
- complete breaks BREMBO (except "stirrups?" (is that the right word? :D))
- custom modified angel rings UHP V3
- complete new rear trunk doors wiring with connectors (for next "easy" repairs)
- new clutch and transmission

Planned for this winter:
- complete repaint (imola red - right now, its hellrot)
- complete motor renovation ("overhaul")

Planned for another years:
- complete chassis renovation (including diferencial)
- complete interior renovation

Thank you very much :) how i said, there is still a lot of work to be done completely. And honestly, i think, it will never be "complete" :D this lovely "golddigger" eats 60-70% of my incomme, but why not. Its my dream car. I dreamed about this car for 15 years! And for 15 years it is my "number 1" (together with etype and 508 ^^). I purchased this car because of my medical statement, and, i am so lucky i did so. This car makes me happy every day i see it, every day i drive it. I love this car :) thank you again :)

Hi & Welcome

These are extremely rare in the UK - I've only seen two "in the flesh" - a Silver Coupe M in the city of Bristol some years back - at the time I didn't know what it was and had to check with a friend who was a BMW expert :) and an Estoril Blue Coupe M on the M5 motorway a couple of years ago. :)

Is that a BMW factory fitted sun roof?

If it was red it may be SpursFanInACoupe's old car.
