  1. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I have a ‘98 1.9 z3 w/ 4l30e auto trans. I don’t currently have transmission, problems, but I am considering mods to increase performance. One mod would be lower gearing. Wikipedia says there are two versions of the 4l30e. The ‘other’ one has 1st 20% lower and 2nd 10% lower. 3rd, 4th, and R are...

    Recently i have come to the conclusion that it was time to upgrade/replace the stock stereo system in my 96 z. Main reason for wanting to replace the stock system is simply because the stock system kind of sucks ( does not really have any bass and when you get load enough it gets really...

    I have a 96 z3 1.9, and lately i have been getting some garbage numbers when it comes to miles per tank.

I have a 96 1.9l and im just looking for an exhaust that will give me a more appealing sound than the stock one. I have not been able to...

    I just bought a 1998 z-3 with 1.9 inline 4 cyl. I would like to check power steering fluid level. There is a shroud covering the whole area above the unit. How do I get to it without taking the whole thing apart? Owners manual not very helpful. Thanks,

    Hey, BMW peeps! Hope you can help. My 1998 Z3 barely wants to run. Sometimes, it will run like normal for a few minutes and then sputter and stall. I replaced the Throttle Position Switch, trying to pin the tail on the donkey. After the TPS didn't work, I wondered if it wasn't some non...

    Hi, I have been offered by a person who owns an original Z3 with 100k miles for $5,700. Everything works with no body damage at all other than the driver side heated seat. He is an original owner and he followed all the maintenance requirements by dealer. I've never been a fan of a convertible...
