I have just bought the official Z£ outdoor cover from my local dealer. Cost was about £114 + VAT. I ordered over the phone on Monday and was ready for collection on Wednesday. The fit is superb to my Z3m as I guess it should be. Its so good that I doubt it could blow off (I will probably see it go f...

Didn't help that the air temp was showing -10 lol. Dealer phoned me on Friday to say sensor had been posted so will have to ge...

I know, I love silver cars, some people think its a boring colour but I think its timeless. Keep driving around now looking for other Z3m's. I see quite a few Z3 around but never seen another M. My brother has the Z4m but prefer the retro style of the older one 8-) Where abouts in Cheshire are you, ...

I know thats why I emailed him to confirm. He does not have the mounting kit which you need installed on your car to actually allow you to mount the roof. He does however have all the parts which come with the roof ie bolts, tools, instructions. I am no expert in these things and have never actually...

eBay Z3 Hardtop £50

Found this on eBay.Looks remarkably cheap. Emailed the seller who confirmed all tools / bolts /instructions included. Was tempted as I have the mounting kit installed on mine. Decided to give it a miss as i) wrong colour (or would black and silver work - no 8-) ii) I only have the Z for pleasure use...

Thanks for this. At least the dealer could tell you where it was, mine couldn't. Am getting the part posted over by the garage I bought the car from. Thought it would be cheaper to fit myself than 200 mile round trip.
Is it easy to get the trim off and replace or should I leave it to my next service?

Thanks, that make more sense, looked everywhere under bumper and around air intakes and couldn't find it. Trust them to put it so obvious as under the wheel arch lining :roll: I will have a look a the weekend if I'm brave enough to do this myself or wait until next service.

Obviously the increased acceleration means it needs to be more accurate - not! Good news anyway, the dealer I bought from offered to replace striaght away. I aked if they could send me the part to save me a 200 mile round trip (and wait) and they have agreed. They have just phoned to say part ordere...

a tyre shop should be able to fix for about £10. They will do it there and then if they aren't too busy. The only time I have had problems is if the screw is in the side wall - they don't like fixing these as weekens the tyre or with run flats especially ZR rated which they are not allowed to repair...

New Z3m Owner

:D well just bought my first Z3m. Have been looking around for a convertable as a 2nd car since last summer. I had the chance to use a Z3 1.9 for a weekend last summer and really liked the car but felt the 1.9 was underpowered for what I was looking for so decided to wait until this year. The long x...
