Hi. I've just joined the forum having recently bought a 2000 3.0L roadster. As with any older car, things will need replacing over time and so I'm looking for any guidance on where best to look in the Leeds/York area for reliable used parts. In particular, I know that I need a replacement windscreen washer reservoir so any guidance would be appreciated. Also, really keen to get hold of a set of 17" Style 32 alloys suitable for Z3 (offset ET 41 I think and front 7.5"/rear 8.5"). They don't need to be in fantastic condition as I'll powder coat them anyway, but they do need to be structurally sound and come with a set of tyres on (just sufficient to make them legal will do). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Matt

Be sure to check dealer prices on some items not as expensive as you may think. Several guys on here strip Z's so worth a try other than that most dismantlers now use E Bay

Welcome to the forum, style 32 are a lovely looking wheel, suit the Z3 very well.

I have Style 78 genuine staggered set of 4 for sale with barely legal tyres

and

Replica (no rear deep dish) style 40 wheels with excellent tyres - 2 wheels have slight flat spots, but easily sorted if you are keen on powder coating.
