Damn fluids! :) Actually, in my case if the leak was more serious, I would have been able to identify it by the smell of the odorant in it. But since the odorant had evaporated... BMW should start...

Congrats, mate! Welcome to the club! Mine is also Imola Red - seems to be the classical color for the M Roadster.

Coolant leak left (driver) side, Z4M Roadster

Hi everyone,

To keep the long story short, got divorced, moved to a new place so my roadster spends lots of time under a car-cover now. Two weeks ago I noticed a wet spot on the ground under the...

Most probably it's one of your ABS sensors. You need to find out which one is it and replace it. Not a big issue from what I've read.

Nope, I didn't, I was wondering exactly like you if this was possible at all - in the sheet provided by Bucko it says it is, contrary to my experience.

Sure. But only if the turning light lever is turned to the respective side. If it's in neutral position no parking light is activated.
