3.0 black top v silver top

Post by Bodyboarder » Wed Feb 28, 2024 10:46 am

Hi all , sorry if this has been covered but just wondering what the main differences are from the black top 3.0 to the silver top . Is one better than the other and if so why ?

Any help much appreciated :)

Has some discussion on it.

I had a black top E86 and now have a silver top E85 and to be honest once bum is in seat I can barely tell the difference between them. I wouldnt be too concerned personally about hunting down a black top over a silver top, condition first.

I've had one of each and in terms of how they drove I really couldn't tell the difference.
