M water pump is a completely different beast than the non-M engines, that were notorious for somewhat short lifespan. I've heard of no early replacement issues at all with the S54's pump. I wouldn't...

Hit the "BC" button on the turn signal stalk repeatedly until you reach the clock in the cluster.

Will I fit?

I'm loosely considering swapping my Z4MC for a Z3MC (S54 of course). I'm 6'1, about 240 lbs, and fit fine in my Z4. (I fit better when I was 30 lbs lighter, but I digress). Assuming the Z3MC I find...

Please, just avoid Ebay Chinese aftermarket headlights - they are most certainly NOT an upgrade of ANY kind.

If these reviews don't convince you - then good luck.

Ooh, that's extended Sepang. VERY nice and very rare! Extended leather in any color is very rare. Nice score!

The early electric steering is problematic - it was fixed (or at least improved?) in '06, when the car received a light facelift overall.

If you hate it on the new 3, I can't imagine you'll like...

The Conti Comfort Kit is probably a better option than the BMW kit. Has a simpler method of connecting the goo bottle. Tire Rack carries it.

350z is a dog with fleas, for a boatload of reasons. The sticky steering on the early Z4 is a valid concern though. Solution: M car. :)

57. I had just turned 50 when I bought mine in August 2007.

My first "cool" car was when I bought my boss's '73 240Z in '77. I was only 19 and the car was relatively recent, so it was a nice snag....

I'd go with Conti DW's, and Conti also makes a goo & pump kit that Tire Rack sells.

At $35k, yes it will depreciate some - but overall these cars' values flattened out years ago. I had my '07 Coupe for sale in '09, with about 24k miles for $29.5k, and couldn't move it. Today at 55k...

It was AutoNation who had it for sale in Texas, obviously Avazi scooped it up from them. Avazi is just like Enthusiast Auto in Cincy - they scoop up the peaches and resell at greatly inflated prices....
