⁷I get so excited every time I get a new z3, even though it is for breaking, I drove it home tonight and it doesn't drive bad at all, very different from a 6 banger though, it's got genuine alpina 17 wheels, ACS front and rear splitters, think it's got a sport exhaust, new front shocks, new rad and water pump, I'll take a better look tomorrow,

Just playing Mike, I now have this thing about buying z3s, especially when they have good bits
If the good bits include a driver's side front wing panel put me on the list ;)

I think all the panels are shot
Ok thanks Sean - I have priced an OEM @£275 retail - can get forum discount from Sopers but collection only. There are quite a few aftermarket panels out there for less than a £100 but a gamble on quality. Will keep looking.

Got a better look at it today, the wheels are staggered 9j and 8j, interior is dreadful, full tool kit. Been offered an obscene amount of money for the ACS splitters but they going on my 2.8

Looks like an early bumper, without side markers. Nice.

Does anyone know exactly when the sidelights were changed? Think it was for all models of Z3 in mid 1997, with the introduction of the 2.8 option, but not sure.

If this is of any help, ripped from another forum :-

The sidelights are different between models.
On the pre-facelift 1.9 they are built into the headlights.
On the pre-facelift 2.9 they are on the bumper.
