Here we go again... Z3 Number 4. This ones my new toy, and to be honest I think all the forthcoming tinkering will be more fun than I got from the fully loaded Z4M I had, 'cos all I could do was polish it and get flashed by other motorists and camera's.

I've just finalised the arrangements with our new swag supplier - Jess from Dreamline Graphics & Print - http://dreamlinegraphicsandprint.com/! Please email her directly via - firstname.lastname@example.org - to arrange and place orders. Please make it obvious that you are from ZRoadster.org otherwise she won't know to print the logo on it

Details on how to find the factory specification, not only of your Z Roadster or Coupe, but of any BMW you may happen to own! Just need the last 7 digits of your VIN number to create a PDF printout of your factory spec.
For a great deal on OEM BMW contact Mark Hamson @ Soper of Lincoln BMW parts department. Mention ZRoadster.org when you call or email them for the forum discount!
Most small parts will be posted free, but larger parts will need to be either collected or paid for.
