Has anyone used Custom Werks http://www.custom-werks.co.uk/ for an Inspection 2 service recently and can recommend them?
Did they do the valve check/reshimm?

Thanks.

Made it up to Gaydon late yesterday in my S54 and asked the bmw dealer guys for a quick ballpark valuation on mine as having some faint similar thoughts.

Re: BMW National Festival Gaydon 19th August 2012

Noticed this last minute - never made it in the past so thought i would come check it out this sunday in my s54mZ3.
What's the best course of action, just turn up, pay and park anywhere?
Is it too late to get an advance ticket and to be able to park with all the Zeds?

PZero Nero - anyone got any? Or what alternative?

Hi, I am in need of replacing only one of my tyres as it has a slow leak. I have a set of PZero Neros - problem is I can't seem to find anyone that has any PZero Neros now and Pirelli say that they discontinued making them in December 2010. So does anyone know anyone that has a PZero Nero in stock? ...

The ski rack attaches to the bootlid rack itself. So you would need to have a bootlid carrier/rack for your Z3, which you can get either ones that drill into your car or ones that fit without drilling. This ski rack has attachments that attach the ski rack to the existing bars of the Z3 bootlid carr...

FYI - Insurance

If anyone is renewing their insurance - I just rang up Tescos to see the effect of reducing my excess would make on my premium before renewing.

Reduced my excess by £750 and no effect on my premium at all - so definately worth trying and doing when renewing.
