BMW Z3 front bumper RnR question


BMtroubleyou

Recommended Posts

m'kay, after 3 hit and runs while the Z3 was parked, I finally caught one of the SOBs that didn't know how to drive or park and taged him on an insurance claim to where I can replace the front bumper cover now. Before I do this and bring the new one to the paint shop, I need to know if I should be weary of Airbag crash sensors located anywhere that I could be touching. I don't want to deploy all billion of my airbags.

Can anyone tell me a general step by step procedure for removing the front bumper cover on Z3's? Is it a strait forward job like a new body beetle?

appreciate any feedback

keep the rubberside down, and away from parked bimmers and beemers.

Just curious, but why are you doing this yourself? If it is through an insurance claim, shouldn't the shop be hitting up the company for everything. Hell, take it to the dealer and let them sort it out. Just my .02. chris

Because i'll be able to pocket $300 in labor if I do it myself, and let them do the paint. That $300 could buy a new fancy smancy intake for my '02

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
