Re: Petrol filler cap

Hi

I assume we are talking about a Z3 petrol cap??

If so; I obtained from BMW Pt No B16.11.6.756.771, the complete filler cap and rubber lead that normally perishes over time.......£21.90 back in 2015

Personally, I would always go with OEM on an item like this.

Good Luck

Re: Headlight Adjustment?

The bulb fitting cannot be "mis-fitted" It is a bayonet type fitting. The bulb fits into a plastic holder which in turn fits into the headlight housing. There's only one way it can go in and also lock into position. Cheers Southernboy That's what I thought; but I was not going to argue when an MOT ...
