Re: steering wheel wobble!

Don't rule out a tyre being 'out' - I put Falken 452s on my E64 and went through a load of pain trying to diagnose a wheel wobble and eventually realised that the tyre itself was running out. I'm a real fan of Falkens for performance but was very disappointed in their quality control. Worth a check ...

Re: Brake Upgrade

I've just been doing a bit of research on the BBK versus upgrading to more of an OEM style set up and the EBC yellow stuff pads with 3M anti squeal pads plus the brembo HC (high carbon) discs seem to do a good job. Anybody used these?

Re: New to the forum (but not to BMW)

Thanks for the warm welcome Tim, sad to see the 6er go but genuinely having more fun driving the Z3 if I'm honest. It'll look and feel like a totally different car by summer next year and I'm really looking forward to getting busy on it.

New to the forum (but not to BMW)

Hi all, if you haven't guessed my name's Lewy and I've just picked up a 1998 2.8 Z3 as a project. Some may have seen me around at the shows with my E64 645 'vert but I've just taken a deposit on it and decided to scratch that itch as I've wanted a Z3 ever since Goldeneye! :D :D Anyway, I paid £1700 ...
