Emek, now that is a cool and subtle ///M conversion (front bumper, centre consol and seats and mirrors) without trying to imitate one, well done :wink:

Car looks great, wheels suite it perfectly and looks very shiney, well thought out and executed :thumb:

That looks great Emek.
I particularly like the hard top - the Wiesmann is a lot "smoother" than BMW one with a much bigger window.

I too am considering the Supersprint exhaust as a replacement to my standard old OEM one on my 1.9.

Please can you tell me what this exhaust is like, does it give a nice rumble, and has it caused any problems with fitting into the rear cut out i.e melting or knocking etc. Very interested to hear what you report.

The sound is similar to that:

I bought Supersprint exhaust (used) on German ebay.
Not knocking on my car, I have OEM bumper without any mod.

Painting the mesh of your side gills silver will make a tremendous subtle difference on your dark car.

Where'd you get that chrome-finished light switch? Nice to meet a countryman on the zroadster eventually. It's so rare to see a Zed here in Poland. Especially as good looking as yours.

How difficult was the engine swap? Is it a plu and play with e exu, or you have to rewire stuff?

Everything was taken from damaged Z3M, you will need ECU and engine wiring harness its not so difficult. Unfortunately low mileage Z3M with steering wheel on left side is not so cheap as RHD so it was worth to do it ;)

For me it was better option, because low mileage Z3M with steering wheel on left side is very expensive, If I will have right hand drive z3 I will just buy z3m because UK Z3m are not so expensive.

If you thinking about it and you have right hand drive z3, forget about it, as I wrote above RHD z3m is cheap. For me it was easy because my mechanics often build E30 with those engines or with V8, I just give them parts and they made swap :)
