BMW QUIZ

Post by Southernboy » Sat 23 May, 2015 08:07

I figured it might be interesting to pose a weekly Z3 quiz which would provide the opportunity for all to learn form and thereby get to know details about their cars which they may not have known. Questions can be PM'd to me and I will select 10 questions and present the "quiz" once a week on a Saturday morning and provide the correct answers from the previous week. This will have a twofold benefit. Some members will do research and learn about their cars, others will read the answers and also learn stuff they probably would never have known, and which might be of use in future. It doesn't matter how "common" the question may be, in fact the "general knowledge" questions are the ones which need answering most often.

1. Which BMW models have the same rear axle & suspension components as the Z3 ?
2. When did the Z3 upgrade to dual stage driver airbags ?
3. Is the Z3 fitted with a pollen filter ?
4. What diameter is the bonnet badge ?
5. What are the OEM wheel offsets front and back ?
6. What is meant by "extended leather" as fitted in some Z3's ?
7. Where would one find a "guibo" on a Z3 ?
8. What does the acronym "ASC" stand for ?
9. Where would one find the two "vibration absorbers" fitted ?
10. What is the correct tyre pressure for the spare wheel ?

Its probably the most common misspelt word in BMW terms but the background to its origins is interesting :wink:
