: Hey everyone,
: Just picked up my M Coupe today! I have some questions for those of you who
: have paid a lot more attention than me to this mailing list :-)
1. Don't know this one- I have a lil 1.9 liter Z
: 2. Cupholders are yours for the asking at the dealer, they will switch for free. Did you buy from Allison or Peter Pan/ I know people in sales or service at each that can do the tradeouts.
: 3.Soften it with some baby oil, lotion, or the leather cleaner and it'll peel right off....
: 4. I have a CD changer in the trunk. It's all prewired in each car. If you buy an aftermarket, be sure to order the mounting bracket also- it holds/ protects the changer in the trunk. I had the dealer do mine so not sure about aftermarkets in the Bay Area.
: 5. I JUST got the DaLan hitch installed today (10/01) on my Z3- ignore the message from what-his-name below about not needing one. Here's the scoop-- Joe at Sports Rack in San Carlos 650-591-9200-- is the ONLY person I've come across that has done Z's and knows how to do it! Order the hitch from www.hitch-web.com, then bring the whole thing to Joe and they'll install for about $50. Doesn't interfere w/ spare tire or modified exhaust or anything. Oh, hitch-web.com also has tire racks, bike racks, ski adaptors that fit the DaLan receivers.
: 6. We have "Z" numbers, unique from the "E" series.
: 7. Nope, and wanting to see how yours looks first!
Josh- please contact me if you want to see the DaLan setup on my baby blue Z, and I can drool with envy over your M.
