    On taking my faithfull Renault Scenic to her last resting place at the scrap yard :( (or Approved Vehicle Dismantling and recycling Centre as they are now known) after a disasterous MOT failure I did ask if they have any Z3's just as a matter of interest. They had the following which is pretty bent however there maybe parts that people may need...

    My Renault had done 216,570 miles, 160,000 being down to me so she owed me nothing....a sad day though, like saying goodbye to your pet dog =((

    Quite strange looking at the pictures.... the interior looks like it would be complete. But after an impact like that I would have thought the airbags would have deployed!

    Maybe it was damaged whilst parked up which wouldn't have activated the airbags.

    I had a crash back in 2004 when I hit an already crashed car lying on its roof late at night on an unlit road and that didn't set the airbags off as it was a relatively small impact but if you had seen the front of the car you would have thought it should have so it is all rather subjective and not knowing the exact details of the crash you can't really speculate.

    I have posted this up on the coupe forum to see if anybody knows anything about it so will let you know if anything comes to light.
