Zed plans for 2015

Post by BladeRunner919 » Tue 23 Dec, 2014 11:25

So, I was thinking about the things I have to do to the Z3 next year and wondered what plans others have. I have a list of items that I've purchased but not fitted, most of which are sitting in boxes at the moment:

Cruise control
Power roof mechanism
6-cylinder front bumper (needs prep and paint)
Programmable wiper module
Brake calipers from 6-cylinder Z3
Chrome-ring headlights with clear indicators
Rear shocks and top mounts
Boot carpets with no 'hump'
Trip computer

As you can see I've been busy buying stuff, but rather less busy fitting it!

So, what do you have planned for next year?

After it's long stay neglected on a farm i need to attend to the rear springs (broken), fit new interior (stained and mouldy).
New alloys or refurb mine, full service, sort out car park ding, mot plus a host of other small annoying items. on the plus side it has cleaned up well and only cost £650 for an 85.000 mile 1.9
