    Can anyone confirm that the Z3M (roadster) was the same shape though out the production run, even after the facelift of the non M cars.
    Many Thanks

    I believe the Z3M used the prefacelift body shape all through the production run

    I thought that was the answer, but I thought I’d check with the experts :thumbsup:

    There are very minor cosmetic changes but the body panels are the same, its things like headlights, badge shape, binnacle colors etc that changed a bit.

    Front and rear bumpers are different on the M. The boot lid may be different (not sure) to house the raised number plate. Side gills clearly differ.:thumbsup:
