Re: Did the Z3 3.0 have "M Sport" suspension as standard?

I have a 3.0i roadster manufactured March 2001 and I checked mine on the online VIN checker and doesn't show M Sport Suspension as a factory fitted option (but it does have LSD) Also my 2002 Z3 brochure (albeit a German edition) states that M sport suspension was an option on all roadster models (1....

coolant

Hi All,

Is Castrol Radicool in blue a safe choice for replacing the coolant in my zed?

Thanks in advance

Are these the best factory-fit alloys on a Z3 ever!?

Was browsing some Z3's on autotrader and pistonheads earlier today (as you do) - and entered the VIN of one that was particularly nice and was surprised to find this listed under the options: S268a - BMW light-alloy star-spoke 95 quick google shows that it is a 19" alloy that was an option on a 7 se...

Re: Service reset

Same procedure as an oil reset but just hold on the terminals for a different amount of time, I think it is in the knowledge base. I had a read through knowledge base about reseting and I think if I do that then it will reset the oil/inspection interval aswell which I don't want to do that - i just...

Re: Service reset

Ok, so after 2hrs this afternoon. I have finally managed to remove all of the nasty hands-free kit and stereo is all nice and neat back in postion. 8-) As Colb expected there was a HF unit tucked behind the glove box which led to a spaghetti of wires. http://i62.tinypic.com/2eowp7b.jpg One went off ...

Re: Hands-free remnant removal and head unit fix - help need

Ok, sounds like I just need to be a bit firmer with the loom to detach it from the head unit I'll have a go at removing the speedo unit then if its just 2 screws and can rest it on steering column. May be able to get a torch and a mirror in there to see at the back and where the head unit is getting...

Re: Hands-free remnant removal and head unit fix - help need

I could be wrong but I think the speedo will come out without removing the rest...

Thanks Colb you are proving very helpful here :) Ok, will leave the black cable alone if its OEM - but that just makes it even more confusing as to why the head unit won't go back in on that right side :? because there is nothing else obstructing it unless its the aerial cable is getting wrapped aro...

Re: Hands-free remnant removal and head unit fix - help need

You could try removing the speedo and/or the trim under the steering wheel - that might let you see behind... I don't really want to have to follow the dash removal guide as far as taking out the speedo. That stage is quite far down the page and includes taking out the steering wheel and most of th...
