Do I recall that some Z2's suffer from loose gas tank straps?
Doesn't take much to check that.
Good luck.

I second that. I had that problem on my 2002 2.5 Z3 Roadster.
The flexing causes the wire bundle to break & short.
Very poor design for such a lovely BMW.

I put them on my 2002 Z3 Roadster 2.5 in 2002. I've never regretted it.
They still look brand new.
I get compliments almost every week from passersby - STILL.

Go for it.

I've got a 2002 Z3 2.5 litre, but in MD just outside of DC.
I have the pleasure of driving it all year round.
Of course, if it snows more than a trace it never makes it out of my garage.

When the engine is running, do you get more than 12 volts at the battery? If you don't your alternator may not be working.

Why Do We

Why do we have to put Z3 in the subject line if this forum is for Z3's???

The few Z4 advertisements that are here could continue to post Z4 in the title.

Compression Check

Take a compression reading for each of the cylinders. If there's a significant variation, you likely have a head gasket leak.
