Interesting about the fitting kit selling seperate. Obviously my car must have the kit. Is it easy to remove and what do they go for? I have not made my mind up if i want to get rid yet.

hmmmm....mines in the way these days and i did have a garage built for the Z last year. I don't even think i had the h-top on since having the garage built. Might be time to pass it on then.

Estoril Hard tops, how much do they fetch these days?

Just wondering how much hard tops seem to be changing hands for these days. Estoril blue in carry case (if you can call it a carry case) / protective zip-up cover ??

Looks great with the red roof. Similar alloys to what I have on the 5 series, style 32 (5 series are much deeper dish though). Works well on the Z.

You can play competitively online against each other. Intro is nice, if your not sure yet wether you like the M3 Coupe, watch the intro and you will want to buy one.

Its also much quicker if you download via the uk mirror, follow the link and the zip is at the bottom of the page.

Boysie, theres a small label with the serial number on the front of the vanos, also shows the manufacturer. I think there were 2, a rolls royce and the other one might have been siemens but not 100% sure.
