I made one out of a of 3 foot long piece of 2" wide by 3/16" steel I got from Home Depot. I hacksawed the 32mm opening near one end and, vavoom! the perfect fan wrench for about 3 bucks. I actually...

You can play with yours at 160 if you want but mine stays below 3000 rpm with very light throttle until the oil temp is over 180, pushing 200. I'm not in a rush to damage an engine with cold 10w60...

My 04 hasn't had a single one of those problems. Well, it set off the tire pressure monitor a few times when no tire was low on air, but that's about it. Don't get me wrong, I still think it's POS...

Check your owner's manual; there should be something about different wheel/tire diameters. 01/02's have a button on the dash for that, don't know about yours.

Even if it is heavier gauge metal, it's still attaching to the same thin box section and trunk sheet metal. It's spreading the load out somewhat, although no where near as much as Randy's brackets...

Huh? What? Seems to me, you're the one stuck with an old engine. Let's see, you're 4.4 V8 has 325 hp and revs to what? 6000 rpm? I wouldn't want an M coupe with that engine; sorry, the 330hp S54 is...

Actually, BMW sold it to him in kit form.


Hell, I'd rather read about the Z4 Coupe from Ron than some writer who doesn't know Dick about cars.
