    Wow, this is a great source of information, but I notice two things about my car. First on the Bimer.work site it says mine is an automatic but it is definately a manual and second it says the car was made on 22nd January 2002 but it was not registered until 7th May 2003 nearly a year and a half later, would that be right?

    Not sure about the manual/automatic reference but is is known to have such a large time span between production and registration, remember the Z4 was on the cards and sales must have slowed down dramatically. looking at your avatar I see you have an estoril blue 3.0, these were specials toward the end on the Z3 production line.

    You can confirm your production date but looking on the front shock towers, one has reference to the car colour and the other has a production date.

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you, your right!, I looked at the front shock towers which confirmed build date and the Estoril Blue. The transmission I assume is simply a typo?

    As far as I’m aware these are global tools. Have you tried and it doesn’t work?

    Just tried the first site posted by Gaz, went straight in and found my car details, all as suspected, proper sport model complete with all //M badges and bits, wheels steering wheel and gear and glow in the dark gear knob, 25% lsd.
    Built on 28-03-2002 and registered 01-09-2002 so wasn't long considering the logistics involved.
    Thanks for the info.
