    Wow. That's interesting! Talk about a vehicle life cycle. So we are in a lull in the mkt now as conceivably a large number of new purchasers of these cars 20 years ago were in their mid forties or...

    "this is where the (free) market is" I am not sure per se. Have you listed on BAT before? I have. They really do pressure you to come up with a low reserve of course with the idea that your...

    Figures....free speech is dead. Reality is they beat up owners to get them to come in with super low reserves. BAT is helping to ruin the car market because their goal is not maximizing sale price...

    Which is super irritating....like, I thought 305 mm was supposed to mean 305 mm. I wish they would publish actual tread width, something Michelin does not publish and Tirerack is not reliable for. ...

    If its only putting out 500 HP my guess is boost is around 4-6 PSI which leads me to believe the internals are stock so lag should not really be too much of an issue since it is a high compression...

  12. 2000 Z2 Dinan S2 Silver / Black

    Not sure the vin number on this one as I can't read the plaque clearly. Still, here is another early example. Owner stated it was one of 7 (at the time).

    The owner states in his listing:

    ...
  13. Dinan Z8 S2 Black/Black WBAEJ13491AH60463

    One of the earlier S2 Z8. Note the different plaque compared to later S2 Z8s. VIN # WBAEJ13491AH60463
  14. Dinan Z8 S2 Pedals

    Not sure if these are part of the S2 package or not, but just realized the aluminum pedals are Dinan as well.

    Crazy good deal. As we've seen, these motors can go over 300k miles so this one is just barely broken in. If only it had a red interior......
  16. Diagram of Coolant Hoses

    Here's the image of the coolant components where you can see the two small hoses that typically fail first. BTW, also noticed the fuel hoses in the V are rubber hoses. Given the age of these cars...

    Yes, actually, I did lose some skin and some bruising from squeezing my hands between the engine and firewall. First time doing one of these jobs, particularly without a manual, is always the worst....
  18. Found the leak....we will all have this problem sooner or later.

    I think I have resolved the issue. There's less on the net than one might expect. After removing the plenum, velocity stacks, lower plenum which requires disconnecting several hoses, disconnecting...

    My pleasure! Its really quite an interesting set up under that plenum. It's a nice touch how Dinan engraved their work.
  20. Coolant Leak. How to replace rear coolant hoses?

    I noticed a water leak and read on forums how when you can't see it it is likely under the plenum. Sure enough, i removed the plenum and found a pool of water. ...
  21. Dinan Velocity Stack and Throttle Body Comparison to Stock.

    Here is a comparison between the stock velocity stack and the Dinan stack. Also, the Dinan throttle body upgrade. Note how much larger and also smoother the Dinan intake trumpet is as part of the...

    I can get the rates from KW for their setup. Does anyone know the rates for the Euro Alpina springs?
  24. Anyone have a front and rear Aplina spring available for spring rate measuring?

    Wow. Big differential there. I think the KW retail for something like $3200. I think what I may try and do is get a hold of a Euro Alpina front and rear spring and get their spring rates and then...

    The i8 is the antithesis of the Z8.....smooth and curvaceous vs. origami.

    I'll do a search. I can get a new set for $2600. I wonder what the Alpina set up is running these days.

    Ugh! Seems there's an 8 week delay once the order is placed. Kits are imported from Europe and built to order.

    I see. I guess we'll see who end up being the first to try them out. If they are too stiff I'm hoping KW will swap out springs for a better setup as I doubt they've done much Z8 testing.

    Good to know....made it to 360k before needing the new bearings, etc. Although I wonder if it really needed new bearings?

  31. Dinan S2 Z8 Registry (Dinan Signature 2 Series BMW Z8 )

    According to Dinan, they produced a handful of cars (under 20) that had their "Signature Two" or S2 package.

    I thought it might be time to create a registry of sorts for these cars. Here's the...

    When do you think you'll install the KW coil-overs. I'm really curious to know how they are and I like the idea of height and shock adjustability

    Our cars sound like twins. Did you also do the quick shift kit?

    Have you tried the KW set up with adjustable shocks and adjustable ride height?

    When i contacted them about cars that had the upgrades they just told me all the cars in general, I presume based on their sales records of the components that go into making a car an S2. ...

    I wonder why they did not do the plaque or what it was that warranted the plaque.

    When I talked to them they stated they thought there were around a dozen or so S2 cars.

    I wonder how many cars...

    Yes, the 295/35 20 Michelin is 28" as well. I am not sure what the ratio is in my LSD.

    Does your car have an S2 Plaque from Dinan?
    I've been told there were about a dozen such cars produced. ...

    I was thinking that as well, particularly given the weight increase over my HRE wheels, but that said, my car has 474 hp so I think it will be okay being a slave to fashion :)

  39. Sticky: The collector who doesn't appreciate a Dinan...

    The collector who doesn't appreciate a Dinan improved Z8 is a bonehead. Reality check. This is not one of 50 or so SWB California Spiders. They made thousands of Z8 and these upgrades are just...
  40. 295/35 20" rear and 275/35 front? and DINAN camber caster plates?

    I'm looking to avoid the rubber band look of tires on the Alpina wheels while also adding more cushion between the road, tire and the Z8 frame. The 295/35 4S Michelins seem to fit fine in the back....
