Rear Spoiler

My 01 Roadster had a spoiler when I bought it. I can't confirm any performance benefit as I have never experienced 110 at VIR without it, but I like the distinguishing look from other Z3s.:D

Nice roadster. It will put a smile on your face every time you drive it. I would bet there are not many with your color combination.

I replaced the radio in my 2001 with a JVC KD-A535 Arsenal radio/CD/Mp3. It has a removable face, but there is a thin frame around the radio which I guess was added based on the size of the opening....

Chrome exhaust tips were the first thing that I added to my Z3. I purchased OEM from BavAuto. They really dress up the rear and I am always surprised why more owners don't have them.

That sounds like a nice M roadster and decent price. You might also consider a Z3 2.5 or 3.0 roadster. These are also great fun cars with a little softer ride and still plenty sporty. You can get...

I am a Z3 owner, but I enjoy reading about both cars. In the event that I ever wear out my car I might consider buying a Z4, if I can't find another Z3.:D

Gas Cap

The only OEM replacement option is to buy the cap plus the retainer for about $25. I made my own retainer out of a piece of parachute cord.
