Re: Z3M Roadster issues s54

Mine used to go into limp if it revved over 7000rpm, switch of ignition and all was ok until the next time.

Changed all sorts of sensors and it was the O2 sensor on the exhaust, my Indy also suggested changing the Throttle Position Switch at the same time.

Don't forget to erase the codes.

Don't forget to note the position of the arm before you remove it, so you get it back in the same place.

Re: Z1 Radio

"The Z1 AUDIO SYSTEM is a rebadged SONY XR-7302 Radio Cassette Head Unit, these branded units were only made for the first <200 cars before BMW switched to the more common Blaupunkt and Alpine units from the 3 and 5 series of the vintage."

Possibly the latter, so I'm still none the wiser :?

Re: drivers window

Double check that the bolts holding the mechanisms in place are all tight - when my sliders started to get stiff, I got the usual banging noise, and it was primarily caused by a bolt near the motor being loose, being made worse by the sliders sticking. I agree, I had the same problem years back.
