I agree, it is baffling. The switch behind the radio allows the post to hold the circuit open while it is in place. That is why you can simply unplug the switch to remove it from the system. I...

Years ago, the dealer (Schomp) replaced mine, under CPO, when the trim on the back window started coming off. They did a great job. It is now starting to show its age on the spars, so if you find a...

It really depends on your desires. The Z4 is newer and more refined. The Z3 is more old school and doesn't have all of the newer amenities. I think my 2002 M Roadster is great and wouldn't want to...

Now all you need is the fob. I think you can still get them, but I don't know the details. Once you get it, it will need to be set to work with your car.
