Re: Which Z3 to get?

Any of the Z3s you mention will give you "the power for overtaking & the odd thrill on the open road"

My advice, drive as many as possible and buy the one you can't wait to get back into. There's much more to a Zed than cubic capacity. :D

Front end respray

This is going to be done anyway over the next couple of months, but...

just wondering how much we think a full front end respray (including fitting of new front panels both sides) is going to add to the value of Hamish?

Cigar lighter does not work in Hamish. When pushed in it just stays in. NO heat whatsoever.

1er RF tyres

Guys,

The front tyres on my e82 are trashed after 30k miles.

I have been offered 2x 215 40 r18 Bridgestone Potenza RE050A for £360 or 2x Dunlop SP01 FOR £320

Are Bridgestone worth the extra £40? Thoughts on wear, noise, grip appreciate too.

Thanks
