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

I’ve added 43000 miles to my manual Zed and there isn’t a difference from the day I bought it.

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.

Re: Z4M service info

How much is the car ? All the above could already be factored into the price. I have my Z4 MC for sale, needs an Inspection 1 but I’ve factored that into the price so the new owner can get it done themselves because the car is Sorned and uninsured at the moment. If it doesn’t sell I’ll get it done n...

Presumably you still have the end fittings, contact a hydraulic hose supplier and they’ll make you a new one using your end fittings.

Re: Head light bulb upgrades , any recommendations

I read an article recently about bulbs and the claims of brightness. It seems the claim of ‘50% brighter’ is in comparison to old worn out bulbs. Basically if you replace your bulbs with the equivalent they will be much brighter than the old ones. There is a rather long winded video on YouTube compa...

If there is damage to the colour coat you will have to flat the clear and then do the colour coat again, then clear.

Re: Engine Mgt Light (2.2i)

I had a misfire once when the car had sat for months
The battery was flat so I jumpstarted it and let it idle while I gave it a wash.
It developed a misfire so I checked each coil pack in turn to find the dead one.
Ordered six new ones and changed them all.
