    Hey all, My name is Leander and I purchased my Dream car last week: a 1999 Z3 Coupe in Boston Green, therefore I thought it was a good time to introduce myself here On this forum. My car is (as far I can tell) mechanically in decent shape, it just has been sitting in a garage for 5 years. It...

    Hi! Anyone have any experience with steering column and power steering issues on a vintage Z3? After spending $1,600 to replace PS pump ( there were no leaks) and replacing steering wheel ring housing (slip ring was rubbing on steering column housing), it is even worse with tightly wound...

    Hi guys, I have a transmission light on my dash (yellow/orange gear with an exclamation point) and I was told that there are 2 codes present at the moment: 1 for the break light switch and 1 for a torque converter lockup - I was told the mechanic will most likely need to pull the entire...

    Good afternoon I posted this on a couple of dead Z3 forums and I mostly just want to share my enthusiasm for this build. Lemme give some back story, I bought this car in college, it's a 1.9L m44 Z3, I took my wife out on our first date in it. I've had it for 15 years or so, but I haven't been...

    Backstory; I have a 1997 Z3 and it stopped cranking when I took it to a mechanic for a front-end repair. After taking it to 4 different mechanics who all promised they could figure it out, I parked it under a shop for the past year. (Don’t bother hitting me with the ‘I would have made him fix...

    Hi all, I'm new to the forums, but have seen some great trouble-shooting tips here, so hoping I can get some tips here related to my Z3. I have a 2001 2.5i with a brake issue. I've had it for a while but finally got around to trying to actually fix it. Initially I could drive down the road...
  14. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Recently bought a beautiful 2000 Z3 and would like to get locks fixed. The driver's side lock cylinder won't turn to lock or unlock either way. The Passenger side door will turn right to unlock, but won't turn left to lock. The trunk lock (of all locks) is the only one that works great and...

    I have a 2000 Z3. I took my car to my mechanic and he said I needed to change my MAF because of some issues I had been having and the airflow codes it was throwing out. So I changed the old one out with a brand new one and thought awesome! It ran better and I was excited. The next day I had an...

    So I just bought a 97 Z3 1.9l that has 80k miles and has been sitting for a little under 2 years and currently doesn't start. I was told that it likely needs a new fuel pump and may need new injectors. I plan on flushing the fluids and trying to run some new gas through the tank and lines bu...

    I have a 99 Z3 Roadster with a 2.5 and a 5 speed. I stole the 4.4 out of my 2001 740i and bought an e34 V8 5 speed to mate to it. I have upgraded rotors/pads and bought a conversion kit to fit the motor in the Z3. I plan on getting fully adjustable coilovers (planning on megan racing) walboro...

    A week ago my radio stopped working as I was driving. No sound coming out of the speakers (other threads discuss a buzz when the amp is going). The radio has two fuses (9, and 44) and 44 was blown. Put in a new one, started the car and nothing happened. Checked the new fuse and it was blown...
