Re: Z3M Brakes

Calipers have been successfully removed and sent away for repair.

Brake discs and yellow stuff pads on order. I forgot the hoses were replaced last year so will keep those for the moment.

Just the wait for them to come back now....

Z3M Brakes

Hi guys. After a bit of advise from others experience. I had the dreaded vibration and squeak from the front brakes at the start of the year.

Re: steering judder c 50mph... occurring on and off

I'm also having this same issue. About 60-80mph the wheel vibrates every time. But when the car gets warm there is a squeak from the nsf and the vibration gets a lot worse under braking. Thought this may help as I've just been reading up on it... http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=18...

Thanks Gazza

I already have the H and R lowering springs which made a huge difference already. Do you think the roll bars are that noticeable again?

H and R Antiroll bars - Z3M

Morning Guys :-)

Been looking at this upgrade for a couple of years now.

Reading through many posts and discussions about it its obvious of the plus points but my question was whether it will effect the steering in any way?

Any opinions would be great :)
