Re: Le Mans Classic 2018

I'm going! Booked with 1st Tickets and already looking forwards to it! . There will be 5 cars in my group. This is my 5th visit and the 3rd with Brian and team on the Pistonheads site. Much easier than doing it yourself especially the catering. Just need to decide if I'm going in the old 911 or the ...

Re: Putting a Z3 into storage?

I store mine for six months of the year ( the cold ones!) and have always used Carcoons

I take most of the actions previously described and the carcoon keeps the car dry, dehumidified and the battery topped up. Don't cost much to run either and the car always emerges in great fettle

Re: Electric window switch problems

Thanks guys. Seems if I want a permenent fix then I will have to splash out on a different/new console! Anyone have a decent secondhand one for a 2002 Z3M in Estoril? I am a bit worried that a brand new one will clash with my 14 year old interior!

Electric window switch problems

Hi Forum members! I have a minor problem with my Z3MR which I wonder has been experienced elsewhere. Basically my wife pushed the electric window button and the button/switch disappeared through the centre console!

http://www.classiccarauctions.co.uk/bmw-z3m-roadster At a time when there are two s54 Roadsters being advertised with dealers at well over £25K (albeit neither look as if they have sold), this example looks a bargain if it goes for anything like its guide price. Admittedly a higher mileage than the ...

Re: My TR4 replacement. Just Love it..!

I had a 1964 TR4 for almost 20 years! Light blue/Surrey top and wires. Sold it as I just wasn't using it but wish I'd kept it now given how they have rocketed in price!

The BMW is a very different but more practical proposition. Yours looks a nice one in just the right colour!! Enjoy!

M Roadster near Wedmore

Spotted a black M Roadster travelling between Wedmore and Cheddar this morning around 11am. Wearing hardtop and looking good! Not many M Roadsters around North Somerset ( or at least I haven't seen many). Anyone on here?

Must get mine out of its carcoon!

I found several firms who would insure it as a classic but in the end, the best premium came from adding the BMW to my multicar policy with Admiral which currently covers daughter and wife's cars.

Re: Anyone know this S54 ?

Nice purchase well done! Just seen the ad in Autotrader and it doesn't look as if you overpaid either.

Any idea why the last owner sold it again so quickly? It appeared to generate plenty of interest earlier this year.

Just booked for the Saturday at Silverstone using the CCD BMW Z3 code.

Would be great to see how many of the 73 s54 Roadsters we could muster - I have yet to see another one since I bought mine last summer!
