Re: M Project Z

We love to see pictures of transformations :)

Be interested to see how your recolouring goes...plus 19's rock, 20's way to big (just my opinion :))...Love my black/chrome deepdish alloys on my 2.8 :D

Help please..Z3 2.8 Won't start..Clicking sound

Hi Guys... Your wisdom and advice needed, car started fine this morning and ran on tick over perfectly :) However came back an hour later to take her out for a run and she won't fire up!

New additions to my Z3 2.8....

I recently took the leap and brought a 1997 Z3 2.8 and haven't stopped smiling since :) Slowly working my way round the car and cleaning up years of poor cleaning etc.... Took the plunge and added a new set of alloys to replace the stock 16's :0 Thought I would post some photos of my toy :) Stock 16...
