Spotted in Cleethorpes // Z3M Coupe & Blue Z3

Spotted you over Christmas, including waving back and forth to the Blue Z3.

That Z3M was turning some heads, including a chap in the chippy I was stood in as I saw it who said 'Whoa, look at that Z4!' :D

Re: 1.9 Z3 Arctic Silver, breaking for spares

Might be interested in the rear/center storage box as I want a spare for potentially returning mine to standard, and the gear knob.

... and pending the price - perhaps the whole roof? Would have to be cheap on that though. And probably some more bits n bobs since I'm in Manchester also.

Re: Airbag/seat belt Light Diagnosis

or. If like with the other module, it's actually NOT table 38 like it says, and it's actually table 40. then it would be:

1b (crash telegram memory)
F0 (control unit fault, internal error)
1A (Seat occupied recognition 1 (SBE1)

... gosh, I feel helpless here heh.

Re: Airbag/seat belt Light Diagnosis

I've managed to source a replacement AIrbag Module with matching part number etc.

Hopefully it arrives this week, I'll swap them over and give the B800 another try and see if it has any luck.

How much would you want for the power steering cooling pipe (the black pipe infront of the radiator)? and if its any easier, all the piping leading to the pump etc. Mines a bit rusty and some of the pipes are seeping on mine

Yup, I've got some temporary replacement rear shockers for now, which I've removed the rust and resprayed to tidy them up.

But I'm sold on the idea of lowering, so how have you found this kit? Price range is what I'm expecting to pay for a quality setup.
