    Hi all, just a quick hello from us as my wife has just purchased a 2000 2.0Ltr 5 sp manual z3. Done just over 100,000 km and very well looked after for the last 13 years by the same owner. Purchasing from a dealer and he had the next service done on it. Getting a couple of small things fixed - seats have front and backward movement when braking and accelerating. Sealing of the rear plastic window. There seems to be a cover over the cowling covering the instruments in front of the steering wheel... is this normal.. it seems to be shrinking a bit. the hood has a small pressure wear mark on it...not enough to put a hole in it but could let moisture in. How can i fix this easily? Looking forward to our upcoming summer here in Perth, lovely long evenings with the top down cruising the coast...

    looking forward to speaking to you and obtaining assistance from the experienced.

    Welcome from Tasmania! I moved here from Perth - too hot for me over there! You can buy new seat bushes from @Aceman on this site, the panel over the instruments is called an Ipanel. I just replaced mine as the previous owner broke it! Look me up and you can see the picture I have posted. Others will come along and offer assistance, you have come to the right place and I am glad to see yet another Aussie here.

    I can officially welcome you now :D

    My first Z3 was a '99 2.0, and it's a great engine. Upgrade now to a 2.2 with a little more oomph!

    Shout if you have any questions.
