Re: Have I overpriced my car?

I did an eBay search for “2000 convertible” in cars for sale, lots of variety and prices, Z3’s do appear at much higher prices than most, possibly the reason for low interest compared to what else is available. Some people are starting to see the Z3 as a classic model, hence the higher prices ? Ulti...

Hi Gazza


I have a query in respect to your comment, is this an amplifier behind the left hand foot-well speaker or cross-over electronics for frequency split between the main and the tweeters?

Regards



Peter
Indeed, amp behind the LH footwell speaker.

Re: Inlet Camshaft Sensor M54 engine

I was told some years ago to always use OEM sensors due to differing signals.

I have used aftermarket wheel speed sensors and they breakdown pretty quick.

The front will ‘poke out’ 8.3mm past the OEM set
The rears will ‘poke out’ 1.3mm past the OEM set

So yes they will fit.

Many of these used to change owners yearly in the early days, many have lots more than 5 owners.

Re: Any one tried Hankook Ventus Prime 3 K125 ?

No doubt they will be ideal for town driving.

I recently watched a tyre comparison video on YouTube, the budget tyres were ok until demands were put on them, understeer/oversteer and braking were the biggest problems.

I’ve used budget tyres on other cars in the past because they suited a purpose.
