Re: FS: Z3 2.0 BLUE Project £1350 ONO

i have a aug 99 2.0l and the front of the block i double vanos ,the one for sale is single. and the washer bottle is at the rear on the 2.0 and in the front on the pre face lift 2.8,so it looks like a 2.8 to me?

Check the two rows of boot welds under the carpet in the boot ,if they are failing they will be rusty looking circles,its a common prob with zeds,if they have popped they need atention or your diff will fall off.
