Re: Lightweight flywheel & shift pins

Whats cracked? I thought you already fixed the boot floor on your car. Im on a single eared cover with 550hp so dont think your clutch change should need you to change that.

I read a lot online this week about stuck bonnets and feared a time consuming job. Happily a liberal squirt with WD40 and a sharp tug got the bonnet open ok. Phew!

Re: RENT-A-GARAGE!

Problem you have is that when you start working on cars you tend to need the tool you dont have to hand. Also you may need to get parts. There is possibility of getting stuck stranded on the 'ramps' while you get what you need. Not great if you are being charged an hourly rate.

Yes I made a tool to remove them - I have it still in the garage somewhere. The standard bushes are rubbish. If you change them fit poly bushes. Its one of the best modifications you can do to a Z3. Makes the rear much more planted and predictable. http://www.iemotorsport.com/bmw/Z3-suspension-steer...
