Re: BLACK Z3 3.0 45000 for sale

Car is back up for sale as I am now permanently in Bangkok since 02/Aug. Would love to ship the car, but circa 300% import duty on the original value is just too much.

Re: Z3 faults

My Z3 apparently had a whole new gearbox fitted in the first year of its life because the original owner complained of a very sticky and notchy gearbox. I have to say that mine is as smooth as a babies bum, so whatever BMW did it has fixed it. Although I do have a squeaky clutch slave cylinder :x .

Fantastic.. and you are only in Wokingham.

Doesn't take long to fit to be drivable, but adjusting to your car could take 30 mins. Up to you though.
