Re: Jonttt Imola II Red S54 Z3m Roadster Journal

Wow Jonttt - a big surprise but as you say when an offer is too good to refuse everything has a price. I'm sure the Boxster will prove an worthy 'replacement' in the roadster stakes.

Re: 692DPG's Z3 2.8 Journal

Hi all - just thought I'd do my yearly report in and let you know the Z is in rude health and still being enjoyed. Only managed 807 miles between MOTs as it was sharing my weekends with a 996 Carrera 4. Testament to the Z, I kept it in preference to the 911 as it is a special little thing. To keep t...

Re: Potentially moving to US with work - what price for Z3?

You seem to be building a collection - how long have you had the yellow US spec car? Since November. It's in not the best condition, but technically drives well and engine works. Lots of small things are missing or need some hand. Sounds like a great project - I don't think I've ever seen an early ...

Re: Potentially moving to US with work - what price for Z3?

It is worth more than 5000 to anyone who knows z3 (m seats, m mirrors, wheels, m console, condition, 2.8), the bad thing is that everyone who knows z3, usually already has one ;) So best way to get more money - sell additional parts separately and car with stock parts - separately.

Hi - with a heavy heart I've got to ask the question as I won't be able to take it with me. My first thoughts are £4.5k as is with all M Parts and both sets of wheels (Schnitzers and standard 17s) or £3.8k as is with standard wheels. Please note either way, car comes without the Raid steering wheel ...

Bob - yes is the short answer. The mirror bases are prone to corrosion which bubbles up quite badly and in the worst case weakens the base so if you try to fold the mirror it can snap. If it's relatively minor it's an easy fix but will mean removing the mirrors, stripping the bases, etch priming and...
