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

If you have a Z3 (coupes or roadsters) related how to, please post a link to it here. This includes anything from mods to DIY maintenance to audio to whatever. If you write a Z-series related how to, please reply to this post with a link to it.

I'll start with a few basic ones:

Ron Stygar's Website

LeatherZ Instructions and Posts

LeatherZ Leather Care Recommendations

368s.com Reference

Roadster owner's this is by far the best product to use for the rear plastic window, this is what was made for them by bmw
I have tried the mequires 2 step and this is by far easier and better then it is
simply rub it on and rub it off, that is it, 1 step and no mess
Note: I have not gotten it on the fabric so I do not know of any affects to it, but it was made for the bmw rear window by bmw so I assume there is no problem

PART #81229407665 $ 8.50 approx.

Poor Man's Stygar Jackstand Adapters

Definitely not going to win any Madison Ave fashion awards with these, but they work great, fit the Z3 jack points perfectly, and cost about $8-$10 to make two adapters.

**Make sure you scroll all the way down to bottom of post to see finished product...**
