    I recently bought a Silver Z3 2002 2.2 and the tailgate badge is for just that 2.2 However, I see many online with a 2.2i badge. Which is correct or are both correct? Or is it just me? Have I lost an "i" somewhere? Thanks

    Hello, my 520i 52 plate petrol, 5-speed, has been off the road for a few weeks. When I tried starting it, it wouldn't turn over and made a buzzing type sound. I tested the battery and it was ok. I assumed the starter was at fault. The local garage have just rang and said the starter is fine...

    Hi All, On my second E36 2.2i Sport after the first one was written off ten weeks ago (I was t-boned at a junction - she didn't see me!!!!! Halo's on blue sky, mid summer - didn't look more like). Anyhow no-one hurt - only my pride and joy hence buying an exact replacement. Latest one is a 2002...

  5. Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    I've suddenly realized that the wheels on my z3 look a bit pants in their wheel arches. I've got 7.5J x 17" fronts and 8.5J x 17" rear. I've done some research and some suggest that 10mm hubcentric spacers all round should help the wheels fill out the wheel arches. The car has the OEM sport...

    Hi all, just this morning I heard a rattle coming from the front of my car, the temp was up at the halfway mark as usual, the engine was running and pulling as normal just this rattle which can be heard when you stop moving, but is there on idle or reving. I am not sure if it could be timing...

    Hi, My 2004 2.2i Z4 has started to play up: # The airbag light has come on # The dash lights for the radio & aircon light, but the speedo & rev counter don't.......then they do and stay on even when the car is switched off & locked. # The electric rood wouldn't open and then like a fool I...

    I like to drive my Z4 roadster with top down. This way has better looks! However, I am wondering how much the fuel consumption will increase if I drive Z4 with top down, but with A/C turned off? Normally I drive around or less than 40mph in town with top down, not on the motorways.

    Hi I wonder if I have some sort of problem: (I meant with my car!!!) At times (it seems that lots of town driving causes this) the car seems very sluggish to the point where pulling away from the lights, the car is reluctant, then stalls. Its a manual, and with 114k on the clock. Original...
