I donít remember which fuse it was, but had a short in wiring of one of my O2 sensors. They are on the same circuit as the fuel rail. Once sorted, all good. 02 3.2

Just buy ESCO’s and be done with it. Worth every penny, it’s not worth a 3000lb bench press attempt to go cheap.

Is an 03/04 bumper cover a direct bolt on for an 02, or do you need the air intakes for the radiators etc as well? That looks really good.

I’m going with Feal coilovers. The boys at my local dealer recommended them look to be a good bang for the buck. Might do it toward the end of summer. I’ll be recovering from surgery for a few weeks.

If you delete it youíll need to either shut the airbag sensor off, or delete it. Carnewal has all the stuff you need to back date your wheel for the horn to work plus the airbag delete bung.

Dad has a Z4 (coupe) and I've got the Box. Both are fun, but the Box beats the Z4 for me hands down. The Box feels tight and go cart like, the Z4 not quite as clean overall. The Z4 has a little more...

No way to know if the IMS was replaced unless you have it in writing. I would be VERY suspect of seeing sealant used in the IMS flange. The flange seals with an o-ring.

It's hydraulic fluid, needs to be checked hot. I don't remember, but the stick may have a hot and cold line. It's not a bunch different. An OZ or two.

Thatís really not 100% correct. I have 19ís, though not Panameras, and my ride is just fine. I do have an S so itís a little bit more stiff than standards to start.
