I have looked into this because I have the same problem.. I narrowed it down to a " seatbelt tensioner or weight sensor I'm the seat. As the most common culprit

**Z3** How-tos (post links here)

1999 Z3 Roadster. My seats slide about a 1/2 an inch when accelerating an stopping. Especially the passenger seat. If I put the seat all the way back it doesn't do it. These are electric seats. Any fixes or advice.

I'm a newbgee - love this forum. Thanks everyone! 3 years ago I bought two (2) sets of OEM
brown LEATHER console "Boomerangs". They retail for over $200 per set - crazy. Been collecting dust as I can't figure out how to install them. Any help is much appreciated. THANKS

Mein Auto: 99 z3
Thanks to all for placing this much needed information to us unenlighted. I have just purchased a 99 z3 and need the dummies guide to check the fluids. Previous owner had records showing car just received oil change and fluids topped off but that doesn't help me to know what to do. Opening up the hood on this car just leaves me scratching my head, and I want to learn for myself.
