Re: Z1 For Sale

Confusingly BMW classic parts shops says the opposite - only right lense is available. https://shop.bmw-classic.de/bmw-classic ... asVIN=true# And cheaper too.

Re: M3 Conversion + DKG Gearbox

I can't help but think you'll have a massive challenge changing the gearbox on a Z1. The car uses a torque tube which would need to be modified. The SMG boxes are bigger so the gearbox tunnel would need to be enlarged. I'm not saying it can't be done but if you're paying someone else it will likely ...

Re: Fired.

Excellent thought/reminder on the fuel lines. I replaced mine perhaps 6 years ago and the originals were hardened and almost brittle. Fairly easy if somewhat messy DIY.

And nice extinguishers - ideal would be a mount just under the front of passenger seat.

I'm think that the column support will remain firmly in place but the shaft could be pushed up through the column bearings towards the driver. Worst case scenario for sure but it strikes me as an unnecessary risk to take.
