switched power z4

Finally got my extra power outlets in today. I have one for xm & another to charge my phone. I hate having wires out the cigg lighter.

What I did is remove the ashtray, remove the screw under it. Then lift the unit up & back the whole thing comes out in one unit.

There are three connectors attached to this, you want the largest (brown) one.

Peel back the wire covering & locate the purple & white wire. This is hot when the switch is on. Use the ground from the cigg lighter.

I fished the wires into the glove (something,on this car that is basically useless) I have the xm & extra outlet there.

I only listen to one station on xm so I don't need to see it or have it within reach. If you do then bring the wires out at a different location as fits your needs.

From jragan:

2. Start Car. (You can enter test mode and test all while the car is running and moving)

3. Enter test mode (hold down the S/R button until _tESt_0._ is displayed)

4. Press the S/R button quickly until _tESt_19._ is displayed.
......After a second, _tESt_19.0 will be displayed with alternating/flashing L_oFF and L_oN.
......When L_oFF is displayed, press both the S/R and the button beside it at the same time.
......You will be returned to _tESt_0._

5. Press the S/R button quickly until _tESt_7._ is displayed.
......After a second, _tESt_7.0 will be displayed.
......Press S/R button quickly until _tESt_7.3 is displayed.

6. Drive.

7. Note speeds. (Remember the _tESt_7.3 speed is in km/h so you'll need to do some math afterwards)

Z4 Rivets

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=302441

Confusion was that it shows at group 51 but doesn't show the correct rivets.
Turns out it's under group 41.
Did someone remove your bumper before, that didn't have the right parts? Could have been from assembly.
The part you have is a pop rivet as suspected.
There is one on each side on the wheelwell at the bottom 9 inches in from the fender.

S54 Valve Check/Adjust

BMW shows it done every Inspection.
I checked mine on the '01 Z3 M coupe around 30K and it was in spec.

Will be doing it at 30K steps along with some other things.

Engine rotation:


Before you start, be cool on the car.

I use the Craftsman off-set leaf gauge, SKU 40802, price $9.99, that has blades ranging from .005" (.127mm) to .030" (.762mm). As pointed out by Ron the .007" (.178mm) and the .009" (.229mm) work for the intake valve clearance check and the .011" (.279mm) and .013" (.330mm) for the exhaust valves.
$15.84 total delivered tax and shipping.

Z4M: Leather Z Triple Gauge Install

This DIY post summarizes the process of installing the Z4 Complete Gauge Kit which can be found here. This post also aggregates other posts related to the topic.

In general the Leather Z kit is well designed and comes complete with gauges, mount, sending units, wiring, and detailed pictured instructions. The posts below provide you with additional details to make your install go smoothly. My install was for the S54 gauges and included the Leather Z Power Socket Relocation kit found here. Since I did not have the luxury of doing this in one shot I broke the process into six steps and completed it over several days allowing me to drive the car after each step. All together everything worked upon first try. I would recommend this DIY to anyone with moderate or intermediate mechanical skills.

Step 1 - install the Z4 Power Socket Relocation Kit adding the radio Aux In.
See this post for tips: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=180804

Step 2 - mount gauges and hook up to dim lighting.
See this post for tips: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=214992

Step 3 - install the water temp sending unit which requires draining and replacing the coolant.
See this post for tips: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=190021

Step 4 - install the oil pressure sending unit which requires disassembly of the air intake system.
See this post for tips: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=210399

Step 5 - wire the sending units tie wrapping along the away finally passing through the firewall to the gauges.
See post above for wire routing tips.

Step 6 - connect the gauges to the sending wires and switched power.
See this post for tips for finding switched power (not in the instructions):

Z4 M Coupe cupholder delete

Removed the passenger side cupholder and replaced it with the blank cover.
Will be doing the same on the drivers side when the parts show up.
Will probably install the V1 remote there.
Each cup holder is minus ~ 8 -oz.
