I’ve not used a dehumidifier but as Brian says above the foam holds LOTS of water, if that is the problem a dehumidifier would take years.

Re: Collapsed front end!

Thanks but had to reverse it to get off the road but no bangs just rubbing noises from the tyres so hopefully ok. Good point about the alignment as had not considered that. I think the garage are going to try and get a pair from bmw on Monday and failing that I have found some on autopartspro.co.uk...

Re: Collapsed front end!

I had a spring break on mine, don’t reverse the car as I did or you may need a tyre also :shock:

Don’t forget to have the alignment done after the springs have been replaced.

Re: Exhaust emission values have deteriorated

First thing to do is put a code reader on it to see what codes have been set, bound to be some as the dash light has come on.

Re: Manual or Automatic? Looking at entry into Z3 ownership

Firstly, welcome to the Forum.

I’ve driven a 2.2 auto and it’s fine, personally I prefer a manual Zed.

If buying the car ‘blind’ you really need to speak with the seller on the phone, ask lots of questions re condition, service, new parts fitted etc.

Good luck with the hunt.

It developed a misfire so I checked each coil pack in turn to find the dead one.
