    Engine Management Light after Service

    Hi guys, The other day I changed the oil, oil filter and air filter on my new Z3. It REALLY needed it! I then took it for a spin. After about 45 mins into the drive, my engine management light appeared on the dash. I was wondering if you guys have had the same issue before, on one similar to...

    Hi everyone, I have just bought a 2000 1.9 Z3 roadster and it needs a few aesthetic improvements doing to it. I noticed that there are one or two cracks in the rear plastic window. The largest one is about 1 and half inches long. (See photo) I’ve used some stuff on the window, as I know...

    Noisy Pulley’s

    Hi All, I recently took on my fathers 1.9 M44 T Reg after it’s been stood for a while and when started there is a horrendous noise coming from the Pulleys (not a squeal more of metal on metal).

Special shout out to the extremely helpful @yocky z3 2.0 - I may not have looked at everything we discussed, but I definitely felt better prepared to have a good look round.

    POLL Coilover choice?

    I am just looking to race competitively in ~2,000cc class, but I've noticed that there aren't many coilover choices for BMW Z3, particularly M44 model. With little research I've done, KW V3 seems to be the best choice, but I am open to all suggestions so I decided to make a poll :) It'd be...

    Getting a bit stiffer...

    Greetings all from Sunny California again! Just sharing a recent mod to try out overall. In an effort to get my Z to handle as well or better than my Track TI (Compact), I decided to try out the Butt Strut and Body Brace from Strong Strut in Arizona. Figured I’d post in case anyone had...
