Several years ago a red Ferrari 308 pulled up beside wanting to race. So I oblige him and took him at least a one and a half car lengths at 60 mph. Not bad for a six versus a V8.

If you live in southern Louisiana Highway 22 from Ponchatula to Sorrento is a nice 30 mile windy road thorough the bayou country. I call it the Cajun's Tail of the Dragon.

I don't have Bentley's manual for my Z3, but I have other service manuals my other cars and trucks, and inevitably, I find that many times the work I have to do on them isn't covered in the manuals.

Cracked fog light

I just notice that the left fog light glass is broken. Does any know if I can just replace the glass or do I have to purchase an entire fog light assembly?

Any information is greatly appreciated!...
