Re: WANTED: ABS Pump 34.51-1164896

Is this part no. for the pump or the controller? I've tried putting the number in RealOEM to see what other (if any) models it was fitted to as the Z3 shares components with the E36/E46 series but it does not recognise the number.

Re: z4 alloys cracking

As above if you are worried about it then get it checked out. As for the Z4 it is only one particular style on the newer E89 Z4 that appears to be having problems and generally it is the 19" wheel that seems to be the worst. I've not heard of any significant problems with the Z3 or E85 Z4.
