Why not try your hand at trading your MR2 for a Z3? You may need to add some cash on top to get a deal but it must be worth a shot! Pistonheads is your friend :wink:

Good luck with the sale, I'd still be tempted to get rid of mine but the issue I'm faced with is not knowing what car I could buy for the money which would be nicer/better than my Z3. :?

The problem with the Weissman hardtop is that it's not too dissimilar from the OEM one. I'd only be willing to pay out for one if it came with the leather headlining as opposed to the velour.

Does the original loom make it as far as the speakers? If so then I guess you're right - there must be a break in the circuit. If that's the case I'd assume it would be somewhere suitable to place an amplifier? Perhaps behind the glove box or passenger footwell? :?

I imagine your correct, i.e. the difference is made up by the chrome ring.

The trouble with a CCFL retrofit into the OEM headlights is that the rings are perfectly circular, whereas the headlight isn't (it's a circle with the top and bottom cut off!).
