Re: 2002 M54 3.0iA Strange startup when warm

Update... At last... Haven't used the car much for quite some time.... Because of the hot start problem and almost constant occuring P1632 fault code, which means, that the throttle is useless.... Car only runs in fault mode = 15 miles/hour top speed :head: The other day I was looking for a solution...

Re: Led lamps for high/low beams

The headlights on a Z3 are only approved with HB3/ HB4/ H7 halogen bulbs. The headlights are not designed for LED- or xenonbulbs so it'll be a MOT failure and in case of an accident probably no money from your Insurance company... Stick to halogen and keep out of trouble.
