    Whenever you find yourself struggling whilst working on car remember: "This thing wasn't made to be repaired"

    Coil overs are cheap if you know where to look. The Front of the Z3 is essentially E36 and the rear is E30. So a set of front E36 coil overs and a set of E30 coil overs for the rear and you are golden. Never search for Z3 parts, they charge you an arm and a leg because its for a Z car. Case in point, i asked pricing for a Z3 2.8 radiator and for a e36 (all identical across E36 and Z3 even same part number) and the quoted price for the Z3 was about 150 pounds more... Same with the spot lights (identical to E39 5 series) Z3 spotlights were about double the price than the 5 series ones and they are literally identical with identical part numbers. That being said, if its the narrow wheel arch Z3 then everything in the rear (subframe diff suspension etc) is directly interchangeable with E30, which makes LSD and final drive ratio swaps cheap and easy with a wide variety to choose from. If its the Wide arch Z3 then you will have to use the wider Z3 trailing arms and side shafts, subframe diff and suspension is still identical. Giving the 4cyl a shorter final drive (notoriously geared too long for the 4cyl) it will make it more lively and can be done for cheap using e30 parts from wreckers. Then anything suspension related for the front, look for E36 Parts. Have fun with that info lol.

    Loving the channel. Only found it by accident 5 days ago. Watched most of the material. A suggested challenge, two teams, Alex and Jack against Ethan and another given £500 each to find cars. The one who has the best looks, least work needed and value for money wins. Car guys against non car guys! Keep up the good work!

    What Ethan had happen to me, I had happen on a VW Jetta TDI fuel pump. I had just had the entire engine apart to replace seals and got it back together when the pin keeping the fuel pump in time. Had to take the pump pulley off, and took the pump out of time, and free up that pin. Now the car hardly starts and runs like crap
