Re: Z3 Chrome pack

I am coming round to chrome trinkets on the Z3. I fitted the side vents (but with the black mesh from the original vents) and have also fitted chrome door handles. l have to say l like it. Contrasts well with the Topaz Blue body colour. Easy to remove if it's ever needed. Have to decide on the scre...

Re: Z3 Chrome pack

Can't decide whether the chrome screen surround looks good, or is too blingy. My car had the chrome pack fitted from new. I think it looks good, as it includes the chromed front kidney grills, the windscreen surround, the door handles, the mesh behind the side grills (not the side grills themselves...

Personal choice I guess, I always liked it, plus it's unique to the Z3 as far as I'm aware

Z3 Chrome pack

Hi,

I bought a Z3 in 1999 and added a chrome pack which included the chrome around the windscreen.

My question is.. can you but the chrome around the windscreen as an aftermarket piece? If so, where & how much are they?

Many thanks
Steve

Alloy Wheels

I have a z3 back in my possession after many years & find the wheels on it a bit boring. Is it right that e36 & e46 Alloys only fit the Z3? I had a z4 years ago with 18" composite Alloys which were great. Anyways What the biggest wheel size the z3 will accept? Is it just the e36 & e46 wheels that ar...

Hi Zeds, I've owned a few Z3's many years back before getting a Z4 (now long gone) Anyways, decided to revisit the Z3 and took the plunge buying a "fixer-upper" a few wks back with the idea of rescuing this little fella from the scrap yard.

Re: Hazard Warning lights will not turn off

I initially thought the siren wasn't working but I opened the car with the key without pressing the fob & it set off the alarm siren. If the siren works with the alarm, then it could be the crash module. AFAIK, there are three ways to turn on the hazards... 1. The switch 2. The alarm 3. The crash m...

Re: Hazard Warning lights will not turn off

Your alarm is going off, but your siren isn't sounding. That's why the hazards are flashing. I had the same problem. Here is a temporary fix that will allow the car to be moved to a place of safety :wink: ... http://www.zroadster.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=42998&p=398188 Note: This will stop the...

Re: Hazard Warning lights will not turn off

I would check the hazard switch sounds like it might have developed an internal fault, disconnect the switch and try a known good one to see if that solves the issue. Hi Colb, That was my first thought. I found a thread on the net explaining to test the switch, simply remove it from the circuit, if...
