Re: Rear Shock absorbers S50 M roadster

Boge or Sachs were used OEM, I’ve used the part number on eBay and found OEM things.

ECP or GSF have listed Boge and Sachs in the past.

While you are doing the shocks you should do the top mounts also.

Re: Eurocarparts

I’ve found oils cheaper than ECP (even with their discount) on eBay

Many manufacturers spec their oil, so just looking for 5w/30 isn’t enough.

I’m not a brand specific person when it comes to oil.

Re: Hi from Montreal Canada

Hi Bertie

I used to use tyre sealants (Ultraseal) and found it ok, did I get a puncture ? Who knows.

I stopped using it when I started to get a wheel wobble, the gel had set more or less solid after a period of non use.

Re: S54 Z3M Roadster - Value?

Really hard to say, check any possible listings on all internet sales sites.

Biggest factor is rarity although they don’t seem to be on the Collectors radar just yet.
Low mileage one owner would be extra rare and deserve a premium in my opinion.

Re: Axel Stands

Axle stands got their name years ago when cars had axles. It is recommended to use the car jacking points at the side of the car for the stands. One of the main problems is finding a trolley jack to fit under the jacking points. One remedy I use for this, pieces of 225 x 50 wood and drive the car on...
