Arrow z3 parts for sale-wind deflector & trunk cd changer

I have 2 BMW original parts that I took out of my 1997 z3 before I sold it a while back if anyone with a Z3 is interested, please PM me. I have been meaning to list these on ebay but thought someone here might be interested.

I have the truck mounted 6 disk cd changer and mounting case with brackets. Great condition.

I also have a barely used wind deflector with the zipper case. It is is the type of wind deflector that goes in a Z3 without rollbars. There are 2 pins that go into the holes on the console area behind the seats. Original factory part# 82 15 9 407*972. I think it will work in Z3's up to April 1999. I used it MAYBE 5 times. Great condition. Picture attached.

Boy I miss my Z3..... she was with me for over 13 years!

Is this the model that folds back to fit under the top? Did you have it installed? The instructions say the that console between and behind the seats must be removed to install the supports, and that it is so difficult that a dealer should do it.

If it weren't for that, I would be interested.

Hello! It is the kind that folds back. I did have the dealer install it, I believe there are brackets that have to be installed in the rear console as you mention. That is what my memory tells me. Once the brackets are installed, then you can easily pop out the wind deflector. I think this is how it works, with the brackets. The install instructions or the dealer could tell you. I obviously don't have the brackets, just the screen and the case it stores in.

If you decide you would like it, let me know!

I forgot to post this in my message, but I also have a brand new exterior top cover protector that I bought from the dealer. It only covers the top, not the entire car. I thought I might need it "one day". That never happened!

Whoever buys your deflector must also buy the supports that hold it. It looks like there are two required at $30 each:

Then the instructions recommend a dealer be used to remove the middle and rear consoles and install the supports.

I would not take on removing the rear console, but some people might not find it so challenging. Yes, they will need the mounts. Thanks for the info!

Taking out the middle and rear consoles does not seem so hard.
The hardest part of the instructions seemed to be locating the two mounts on the floor of the car and drilling the holes in the floor pan. It must be done with utmost precision or else the mounting tubes will not receive the deflector's posts. It is not clear if the template for locating those holes on both sides of the pan comes with the individual right and left mounts, or more likely is only included in the complete kit of mounts plus deflector. So even if one buys the mounts, there might be no template for drilling.

My 97 had that deflector but I removed them when I retrofitted my car with roll hoops in 2008

Lots more complicated than I thought! Great pictures! Thanks for sharing. Did you retrofit it will the roll bars yourself??? My Z3 was more fun to me than the Z4 I have now. It's a super nice car but I was just more comfortable in the 3 for some reason.

Yeah I did it myself. Honestly the hardest part about a roll hoop retrofit is finding the parts. The actual installation just took a few hours. Fortunately my 97's build date was after 1/97 so my car's body was threaded from the factory to receive the inboard roll bar mounts.

You got lucky on that then, having the body already threaded. That's awesome you did it yourself. Still way more than I would ever take on. But I'm a girl, I just like to drive it. haha

I don't know why the drilling template mentioned in the instructions would be so important. Why not just stick the two supports onto the two rods of the deflector, put the whole assembly down onto the floor of the car where shown by the instructions (and the photo posted here), and mark the holes. No measuring.

Another item to consider about the deflector. When the deflector is installed and in use, sticking up behind the seats, can the boot cover be used? I don't think so.

You know, I don't remember if you can use the boot cover with the wind deflector. I seem to think you can but I didn't put my boot cover on very often, it seemed to stay in the closet most of the time..... I don't recall the boot cover covering up the area where the windscreen attached to. But I sold my Z3 four years ago, so I have forgotten!

Yes you can use it with the boot. I don't have pics of it folded down but it could fold down nearly flat

I see, it's completely forward of the boot. Is it really effective against wind in the cockpit? With the windows down, or up?

I sent the picture of the floor brackets or mounts shown in Msg 7 to BMW of South Atlanta. They are part #7 in the diagram on page
http://parts.bmwofsouthatlanta.com/s...ssembly=263158.
BMW of South Atlanta replied:
"These mounts, in your picture, are not available. Only as part of a complete deflector kit."

That means JetBlack's deflector can only be used by someone who has a deflector installed and has either lost or damaged it or wants a spare.

On the items I have, any reasonable offer would be great. On the windscreen, I was thinking $150. You would need the brackets as others have posted on here. Thank you!

According to Msg #1, the only items for sale are a CD player and the wind deflector.
If you have no boot cover, the one pictured in Msg #14 is a semi-rigid OEM one. They are over $400 new or under $200 used. The ends fold under so it fits in the trunk, but it takes up most all of the trunk. It takes a few minutes to install, and tucking the rear edge into the body is hard on the soft foam rubber gasket that is on the body around the edge of the boot.
If you need a boot cover, you might prefer the aftermarket soft travel cover, that folds up into a zippered bag, takes up little room in the truck, installs very quickly, and does not even touch the rubber gasket on the body during installation.
http://www.roadstersolutions.com/page18.html
I have both. If I had to buy only one, I would prefer the travel cover.
