Yup, I took of the front plate and mount on my first Z3 I had. Very much cleaner look. Going to do the same to this one I have now when it comes time to repaint the front bumper.

Re: Fitting Z3M top mounts to a standard Z3 (2.8)

Gday Howard,

As far as I know all the z3m top hats are the same part number, so no dramas which ones you will get. They are different left and right though. Mine is a 2002 3.0, so yeah no issues there.

I just did this to my car, 2002 Z3 3.0 roady. I didn't do it for tramlining, but to be able to fit my front 18 inch (M5) style 32's. The rear was a perfect fit, but the front stuck out about 1.5cm..
