Re: Pinking (pre-ignition) 1999 2ltre

I wouldn't use that shower where you took your car to be hooked up to their diagnostics. All the gear, no idea. Did the same to me, charged me for new MAF and then my car broke down instantly with same issue and they wanted to charge me to recover it after their work. £400 out of pocket. Whatever yo...

Re: Fuel sender/pump unit problem

I had this, £400 later at the indy. Indy with all the gear no idea. It broke down again at home after filling with fuel. Wouldnt even come and pick the car up as it wouldnt start. In the end I got INPA and worked it out to be the switch before the carbon canister (Vent solenoid?). Cost £10 for 2nd h...

Re: Halfords tool sets for carrying out Z3 overhaul

I bought a set of these last year. Changing the sparkplugs I noticed the ratchet was faulty. Finished the job and took the ratchet into Halfords under lifetime warranty. I was told any tools with moving parts are not covered by the lifetime warranty. Fortunately mine was still within 28 days of purc...

You can get the most expensive tyres you like, but if they tramline then you can keep them.

Re: Wobbly door mirror

Or mine if it's only the steel collet that's rusted. Drill it out and use stainless steel nut and bolt to take up the tension in the re usable spring spring. Permanent and the mirror still folds backwards. http://www.zroadster.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=34083&p=319059&hilit=corroded+wing+mi#p3190...

Re: Just had a thought.........

And can I ask the OP what the reason for the question was? Is it just to know if one exists?

Maybe you can define your interpretation of 'stock'?

Re: Just had a thought.........

Still got the stock stereo. So it's stock. Then again the oil in it isn't BMW oil, the tyres are Falkens. And it's got more miles on it than it was when it was stock.

Re: Wing Mirror - can it be fixed?

Easier- yes but not cost effective. Second hand ones are quite expensive. A second hand one will still be 10+years old so you take a gamble in the condition of the innards lasting only a short time. Fix with Stainless steel and tidy up the base. Is much cheaper and will last longer. Depends if you a...

Re: Wing Mirror - can it be fixed?

Yes it can, Try my fix. It's permanent and allows the movement of the mirror base still. The spring should be OK as the rust on it is from the collet, few whacks with a hammer should shake the rust off. If you want to go further than myself you could drill out the centre of the bolt on a lathe to ch...
