Mein Auto: Z3
electrical

hello ! There, All the light problems can be corrected simply by BMW PC. I just had my "check airbag" light done by them and it cost $70.00 - so allow that for each group of lights or get on the internet and find the different button combinations to reset the "engine" light and the rest. I took out the seats and the airbag light came on - that's how I know. The brake lines and shoes may be a problem and a new top is around $500.00 and another $250 to install it - unless you're handy and patient. I've got the 2.8 standard Z3 but if yours has an automatic - that may cause you to spend $$$. Overall - that car is worth about $3000 to $5000 and once you fix it up - you could double that. The body steel is galvanized so there should be no rust. I'd snap it up in a heart beat. Le tme know how things go. Blimey

Sorry guys. The weather has been beautiful. Put on a new set of tires and I have been driving the heck out of this thing! 80 miles round trip every day and loving it! I promise to get some shots of the completed stereo up soon!
