Just found this forum today, wanted to take a second to introduce myself...

I am a 1998 BMW Z3 1.9L that was very neglected and turned away by my original owner on craiglist for $1500.00. Thinking my life was of to scrap pile, I was picked up by a beachside bmw finatic that quickly put me back on the road with all necessary repairs. Living the good beach life again for 2years I was put in the garage for many months. Unpowered and not knowing what was going on, I sat and sat and sat. Many things happened to me that were very confusing. Parts of me were removed. New parts were added. Finally one day, with a new brain, and something I hardly recognize, I come back to life as 1998 BMW Z3 S. Check out some photos below or follow my build at https://www.facebook.com/groups/757670637663639/

Super low Z, must be like a go kart.
That 5 spoke wheel looks lovely, what is it?

That is a millie miglia replica wheel... 18s staggered.... My favorite wheel so far. However the offset on current wheels (e46 M3 wheels) is best. Milli Miglias for sale $250.00

I love those wheels, wish I could locate a set of those for my Z4. I don't do FB but thank you for the pictures.

Tony.
