Fuel leak

I have had that problem as well. There is a gasket where the filler tube joins the gas tank. This can dry out and crack giving you an intermittant leak when the fuel tank is topped off or the car is parked in an incline...worrisome is that the fuel leaks close to the exhaust...The part is standard 3...

Wheel well liners

I had the terrible experiencing of discovering that my front wheel well liners are all cracked. To make matters worse, they virtually disentegrated when I attempted to remove one in hopes of making a repair. The rubber is so brittle that just handling them results in there falling apart. I haven't c...

Z1 US importation

I had a positive experience with Wallace Labs....their Houston location is a nice day drive to Colorado Springs as well! They handled clearing the car from Customs in Houston which was the Port of Entry--so it was essentially a turn key affair for me. It sounds like some have had less than ideal exp...

I used Wallace so I'm not sure why they are less than knowledgeable about the process...I have't kept up with the regulations so make sure you have the authorization to import papers in hand before proceding any further.

Z1's on BMWVCCCA Rally through Caliornia

The BMW Vintage and Classic Car Club of America is in the midst of our 2 week Rally around northern California. We have 7 Z1's participating (considered "Classic" ) . I opted for a 1937 BMW 327/8 this time but no one can beat the Z1 for fun in the California sun! I think 5 of the Z1's hail from Germ...

US Importation of the Z1

I imported my Z1 in the fall of 2003 under the NHSTA guidlines. You will need to determine with the NHSTA if the Z1 is still eligible...Roughly your costs above the purchase price will be shipping ($1800), customs ($1000), EPA testing ($11000), and possible storage fees during the customs/federal in...

Z1 Front Brake Pads

I need to replace my front brake pads on my 91 Z1 here in the US. Does anyone have the parts number or can I assume the pads are the same stock pads of a 325i from the era?
Thanks,
