Re: Exhaust!

One of my zd’s is a 2.8 97/98 pre TU crossover and it had one single lambda at the middle/front. Check if your ECU is single or dual Lambda. Mine had the genuine exhaust on it.

If you get a bicycle gear or old style brake cable that has a bullet end on it and poke it down the tube , that works or a plastic flexi rod. That’s what I use as it’s less abrasive. Also works for the roof drains.

You can order which you want from any BMW dealer.

There is a myth that Z3M mirrors are no longer made by BMW. This is simply untrue. I repeatedly see them up for £500 a pair in used condition.
Just pick up the phone and order them new.

Go purple for a more standard/fast road feel or black for very stiff track use.
You can do the same thing with weld in plates but I am not a fan of them.
