Re: Latest trauma - bonnet stuck!

This happens on my car a lot especially not using the catch that often and especially when it's very cold, I did panic at first, as somebody suggested push down bonnet and take pressure off the catch, or just try several times again to open it[emoji108]

Re: Hooked wrench for Z3 hard-top adjustment.

Hi
I believe the gap on the gauge is approx
4mm, tramlining is usually the tires
I tried my hardtop for a very short time, a few days
I'm not keen on it, the look is great but I want
a soft top I rarely have the top up, even garaged
It's down
Enjoy :-)

Cars kept long enough are like property they go up and then crash, then level off, but historically they will rise, many of us wish we had kept several cars of our early days of driving.
