Ok question for Z3M owners.

Looks like my outside temp sensor has failed gauge goes to max. BMW want well over £100 for one and system says it only fits Z3M S50 & S54 models.

My question is has anyone else had this issue and if so have you used a different sensor from one of the other Z3's which are about £20 at the most??????

Thanks in advance.

Is it the sensor or the gauge itself that has failed?

I retro fitted the M console and used a standard brass temperature sensor. It reads about 2 degrees high but I'm sure this is fairly common from other posts I have read?

Plenty available on eBay or from a company called etb instruments from what I remember.
