So I thought I'd form some kind of build, I think this is the place to put them here on this forum so here it goes!
So the car in question, 2000 z3 3.0 with 120k on the clock. Purchased on 24th December 2011 as a christmas present to myself.
Had a few issues with the car at first, EML light kept coming on when I purchased her (got price down due to issue etc). Then after having a couple of plays with my mates e36 stripped and cammed 3.0 M3 one night she then started running very rough.
After many head scratching, few swear words and many youtube videos later I put my hand on the issue which was both the EML light cause and running rough. One split in an intake pipe hose, doh. - Glad it was simple in the end!
So I'm 23, wood affect isn't really my thing. I had already purchased and had delivered the required incredients for the task
. So I set to work:
Couple hours later, saw fingers and not too many stanley craft knife cuts later:
Got it all back on
Few more of her at this stage:

- Please feel free to watch
So this left me for a few months, I then purchased some coilovers to get her lower and remove the rather soft old suspension.
Next up, I've got some rather rare German wheels.... 8.5j fronts, 9.5j rears mmm..
Schmidts Space Liners!
Now waiting for my spacers to come through for the fronts, so hopefully in just over a week they will be on
