Re: Z3 boot carpet

Hi all, finally managed to find what I wanted. I found a whole set of boot carpet (bottom, around the back and the two sides). I allready fitted the one which goes around the back and it fits parfectly, very happy with the gain of space! So I now have a spare boot carpet for those interested. Free i...

Re: 16 inch Original Z3 alloys

100£ seems a good price but I wouldn't be surprise if you sell them for less as ther is not a big demand for these and every time that kind of wheels are coing on sale thay are going for a very cheap price!

It all depend on the tyres, if they are in good condition you will sell them quite easily.

So rubber hoses all around and new hose for the clutch without the CDV.

Siwilson, you couldn't be more right!

I know my tires are quite hard, the rubber doesn't grip as much as it should and it is not wearing down as much as it suppose to but I keep them for now... as I said earlier I don't drive fast anyway!

Re: Aerial grommet

As said before, cheap and easy to do.
Buy from the dealer. Even if they probably don't have it in stock you'll have it in a few days and for a good price.

And if it is like in Milton Keynes you might have the chance to seat in the new i8 and eventually drive it!

I think I'll change the drop links and will have a look at new shocks quite soon because even if the actual ones have gone through the MOT they are far gone...

Then tires when the one I have are good to change.

Hi, here is the part number from euro car parts:705111531

I'm not sure I would say this is a bad buy as the quality seems good and with a few bits of metal you should be able to make a mount to avoid the exhaust touching the car.

And the price is ok too!
