Default Quick question :)

Will the Z3M brake calipers fit my non M normal coupe? Also in meantime front diffuser has arrived, and rear has been ordered. Got some M door sills to add to the pile also.

Thanks

No they don't fit on, the kingpin/hubs would need to be change (and then the struts probably as well).

The bonus is your car has many more options for brakes than the M. I am sure factory 330ci brakes fit straight on from the E46 and are same size as Z3M @ 325mm so will fit under 17s. Also loads of aftermarket brake kits available.

Default Quick update.

Thanks for the info, i should check this more often:)

I don't know how I managed it, but i bagged myself a genuine ACS boot wing, which i really wanted:) so that's coming this week. Door sills are lost in America, god knows where. Still haven't sorted wheels too.

Really after a set of the original M mats. If anyone has a old set or spare. Let me know.

Thank you . Progress is slow, hard getting things done while working away.

ACS handbrake and gear nob are on UK eBay as I'm typing this :)

Handbrake and gear knob are way overpriced at £250.

I think you did well with the wing as it was much cheaper than the last one I saw on ebay

Default Update.

Been a while. My fake Z3M project finally started.

Picked up ACS wing.
Dinan rear diffuser.
Some 9/10J BBS 3 piece splits.
Cars currently in garage for full repray. Ferraro Corsa red.

Full set of refurbed z3m gloss black wheels for sale, new stickers/centres and also a spare rear up for grabs £750. Went against splitting the wheels, due to time it would of taken to do.

Hi Jimbo,
Interesting project you have started, looks to be coming along well.

Since earlier in your thread you had a picture of Jess Robson's car which you had seen up in Newcastle, can we presume you are from up this way?

I take it the car is LHD as I believe no RDH non M Coupes were made?

Look forward to seeing pics the finished car.

Hi Pete

Thanks for the kind words. It's a non M RHD, bloke who I bought it off said it had been converted. I had no idea if this was true, but the car has the passenger air bag sticker on the wrong side, so maybe a clue lol I'm from Middlesbrough yes :)

I'm at a local show this weekend at Gateshead stadium on Sunday if it's finished.

James
