Re: Brake Updgrade

Have you looked at the PFC rotors and pads?

Re: New head unit recommendations?

Back to the topic...

Has anyone encountered an Android unit that works well with the Z3?

Re: New head unit recommendations?

I asked about a newer solution which would be as good as the 1-DIN Parrot.

Your unit is crap.

Re: New head unit recommendations?

Well integrated 1-DIN & Google maps, any idea beside the Parrot Asteroid classic ?

It's not a big problem to me if it doesn't look vintage.

Re: Remote doesn't work. ZKE issue?

I detailed the method I used in the first post. It is supposed to work even if you haven't opened the car with the remote.

I'm pretty surprised Z3s didn't comme with an IR remote at the beginning in the UK.

Re: Remote doesn't work. ZKE issue?

Yes I have.

Still can't pair/sync my key to the car but I wonder if I'm using the right procedure. I have only one remote.

FT & BT?? I have the $875A option: Infrarot Fernbedienung/Infrared remote control.

Re: Remote doesn't work. ZKE issue?

It is not an alarm. The pic I posted probably is a Chinese empty shell for those who want to replace a worn key but it is the exact copy of the BMW equipment. I have never really thought about the signalling from the key before but i am surprised that it is IR, I have a similar key but mine works on...

Re: Remote doesn't work. ZKE issue?

I had to point to the car's cabin (probable the rear view mirror) to get it to work, yeah.

When I point thé IR LED of the remote towards a digital camera, I see it working.


Any chance there is a Z3 specific syncing procedure?
Or could I do it with INPA?

And the car comes from Japan but I don't know if they did things differently over there.

Re: Remote doesn't work. ZKE issue?

The car has no alarm.

I'm having an issue with my remote locking system (americans call it keyless entry I think).


There are two CR2016 batteries in the key. It is infrared and looks like that:

Re: Remote doesn't work. ZKE issue?

By the way the car is a 1999 M Coupé but I posted here since it doesn't sound like an ///M related issued and I thought the audience would be larger on the "regular" subforum.

Remote doesn't work. ZKE issue?

Last week, my remote stopped working. It was a bit abrupt but I didn't feel too concerned since these batteries were pretty old. The red LED on the remote wasn't lighting anymore. I took the batteries out, one was showing 2.5 V, the other was completely shut (-0.15 V, yes I've checked the polarity l...

Re: New head unit recommendations?

If you don't look for most advanced stuff, you might want to consider the Parrot Asteroid classic :

Added bonus : you'll have a (small) satnav in a 1 DIN form factor, which is quite rare nowadays.

I'd like to see this mod on the Z3.
