After 10 months of fiddling its almost completed.

For those who cant recall, i bought this blind at the end of last year and it needed a little tidy up. Quite clear its had a perfect history looking at the invoices, service book and touching base with a couple of previous owners. Whoever owned it for the last 12 months clearly didn't look after it.

I've done the below with a couple of small jobs outstanding which can now wait until winter.

Genuine CSL wheels, fully refurbished and 4 x new Michelin Pilot 4 Sports fitted and 4WA
Inspection 2 @ BMW
Fitted genuine wind deflector
Replaced boot struts, M Badges, Brake light unit
Stubby Aerial
LED No plate lights with private plate
ZHP
Replaced faulty ABS control unit

Pics below as i collected her 2 months ago after the ABS control unit was replaced.

I also have a Z3MR i have owned for 7 years which I run alongside her but shes in storage currently until next year - thought i would share some pics of her today.

Hope you all approve!

Chris

Thanks Guys.

The Z3M has had some nice bits done over the years - just a few things to keep it a little more modern feeling - suspension was a bit worn and tired. I still have all the original parts. Only done 60k and two owners so will keep this for a long time. Shame i only have one garage so its currently in storage...

Full stainless Eisenmann race exhaust
Carbon Evolve intake
H&R Springs and dampers
Upgraded xenon headlights (standard ones are like two iphone torches they are that dull)
Retro headunit with bluetooth music streaming
M Performance genuine alcantara wheel
Upgraded brake kit

Got to love a Z3M 😁
Mine has been in a lock up for just over a year now, waiting for some love and attention.
Some pics from a few years ago with hardtop on and some from a few years later.

They're great. I came across spread in Autocar today which read...

"It’s not so much that I got it wrong at the time, more a case of realising now that although it was flawed, it was almost the last of a breed. Or, to put it more simply, if it was made new today, we’d all love it. I’m talking about BMW’s Z3M Roadster. A simple car with hardly any electronics, and a lovely straight-six engine with more than enough performance. It looked way better than the standard car thanks to blown-out wheel arches and wide rims. The chassis wasn’t brilliant and the steering a bit soggy. If you own one today, I’d suspect you love it."

I agree. A proper strut brace and suspension upgrades definitely help!
