crankcase vent

For COMMUTING, an F800GT may be the better choice (lower weight, narrower, lower cost, better fuel mileage). For longer-distance sport-touring, then the R1200RT is the better choice.

Make sure you have the right grommet for your car. Your 2000 Z3 uses a different grommet from the Z3 shown in the pictures, due to the different rear fender contours.
