    While the Z8 is all unique on the top side, I have found that the bottom side is all off the BMW parts bin. Brakes came from the e53 X5 and e38 750, suspension bits -- i.e. control arms, stabilizer...

    Iíd think that given the comparatively low numbers of black/red compared the ever present silver/black on BaT, this car would fetch $165-$185. Now condition is another issue.

    All coolant hoses, and I mean all, should be replaced at least every 10 years along with the expansion tank and drive belts. Iíve done this twice on my 2003 Z8 with less than 10k miles.

    Somebody should tell the folks at Mecum that Z8s are roadsters, not ďconvertibles.Ē Mecum is just the wrong auction house for this car. Much more focused on American iron.
