Thread: Service day!

  1. #1

    Service day!

    With my Castrol oil in the trunk, I'm ready for the Z8 service and right sunvisor replacement. My daughter Taylor damaged the original visor by pulling off the mirror cover when we were cleaning up the car for the Danville concours.

    The California black plate looks good on your car. Aside from the oil change and visor replacement, what else is planned for the service?

    See if you can get the Euro visors without the stupid airbag warning splattered all over them...

    With this service, a brake fluid change too. Cosmetically, the 4 knobs on the dash will be replaced as well as the lower plastic assembly on the passenger side door. One of the two storage unit doors will not stay closed.

    I missed out on Andrew's pair of EU visors that he sold last year. Maybe you know who purchased them. The cost of a single US visor is an eye watering $400 and the thought of doubling down for two EU visors... Yikes!

    Why, yes, I DO know who bought them: the dame who introduced me to the quaint custom of buying Euro visors for your BMW! I think it started with her E36 M3; she did the same thing when she took delivery of her 335i (now a Dinan 3 with license plate TWUBBL). I had to do it when I bought the Z4. And now Buffy has nice clean visors.

    The blue car? Hrrmph. Driver's side is over $400!
