Re: Engine oil Z3 M

Another one for you guys! My partner put her 2000 1.9 Z in for an MOT but it failed on emissions, they recommended a new exhaust system (?) .

Re: Engine oil Z3 M

Same here, I find that when taken to a garage they seem to take as least time as possible draining the old oil, leaving remnants of the old in the sump. Always best to do these little jobs yourself if possible for peace of mind and the thoroughness. BTW I purchased my Castrol Edge 10w60 from EBay @ ...

Re: Lower control arm Z3 M

Thanks Del, I think the set up is slightly different on the M where it needs to be raised, not only that I got a spanking price on fitting the pair, hardly worth dirtying my hands [emoji6]

Re: Lower control arm Z3 M

Bought these from Euro car parts with an additional 35% discount, £110 the pair, getting them fitted Tuesday as I can't seem to get to the middle ball joint nut from ground level and don't have a ramp.

Lower control arm Z3 M

Anybody know where I can source a pair of lower control arms for my M Roadster 1998, or are the standard Z3 control arms the same? Thanks

Re: Engine oil Z3 M

I was under the impression all M Series used 10w 60, not sure why it would be for specific engines, mine is the S50 by the way

Yes I know, I will probably get mine recovered as opposed to changing, seems the simpler option [emoji848]

Anybody out there aware on the regularity of changing engine oil as I don't do a lot of miles so service lights do not drop that quickly?

Re: M Tec 2 steering wheel

Blimey! Thanks for the reply, it looks like a bit of a stab in the dark as to whether or not it will fit the car. The prices are pretty high but one has been advertised on EBay re covered, I might just stick with mine if nothing More than the safety feature of the airbag. Many thanks again for the i...
