    Can anyone tell me how much weight is roughly on the rear springs of a z3 2.8? I'm having some custom springs made up for the rear and need a rough idea. Thanks Daz

    Z3 2.8 has a 52/48 weight distribution and weighs 1360kg so 707 on the front and 652 on the rear. Petrol/luggage/breakfast all change it but should do as a rough guide.

    Having a 2.8 I am interested in what you are doing, is it in projects, or progress etc? etc or would you fancy letting on? no offence taken if you would rather not say.
