Re: Anyone Else took advantage?

2 hour drive to the Morgan factory for a pistonheads meet, look around the factory, admired a few cars, then 2 hours back again. Only downside was it was mainly motorway. Filled up last night and have driven about 230 miles - the fuel light is about to hit the red soon!

Reception on my oem stubby is ok where the signal is strong, but dodgy where the signal is a bit weaker. Doubt any of the stubby aerials are as good as the original (I wait to be corrected!), but they do look much better. A compromise as ever.

Shantybeater made a set of bixenon headlights for his z3m, which look very oem. If you read his thread the details are there, but the parts cost over £325 plus the original set of headlights, not to mention the time he put in to it.

If it is the 'sport' version, then it is a bit quieter than the 'race', bit still nice. There are a few you tubes comparing the sound from them which will give you a bit of an idea.

Was worried that it was going to be a poor fit and look awful, which would have been a real shame. Thankfully it looks ace and really good in silver.

Most people will be put off getting one by the amount of work you had to do, so that is going to keep it much more exclusive!
