Anyone know of a place or site to get a 2001 Z3 3.0 rack and pinion, apparently mine is broken and didn’t pass inspection and the ones I found is going to take at least 1-2 months to arrive. Been having a hard time finding one.
Honestly I feel like I’ve been bamboozled by the mechanic. I brought it in for a simple state inspection and it came out this way. There’s no leaks or anything. He just said I had to replace it. Honestly from the looks of it, it’s dry, the bellows look nice. The only thing at the moment is that my left tire clunks when driven. It all just magically happened at the mechanic, a bmw specialist too…
He said well you have a lot of problems with the car and the usual stuff about wow I can’t believe they sold you a car like that. Proceeded to tell me that the CCV is bad and the thermostat is also bad and then he failed me for inspection. They used to take care of me but idk what’s going on. Perhaps they just saw a 2001 z3 with 44,000 miles and said meh, let’s charge him everything
I think as long as no prohibitive costs involved I would get a second opinion if someone else tells you the same thing then fair enough but if your personal opinion is that something not quite right then a second opinion will help to gauge your next move.
