Re: Is this M3 ZCP a good deal?

Guess: You'll need closer to 8K to make it right - and +2.5-3K to get it ready (reliable, safe) for track (likely more).

Track prep is a higher level of prep.

Re: Clutch problems after CDV delete

You have a leak in the system. Go back to the CDV location and check there. Then go back to bleed screws and check them.

Thats assuming that you had a good seal on the pressure bleed cap fitting...

Re: Clutch problems after CDV delete

The system isn't holding pressure (leak) - or your pressure bleeder isn't holding pressure?

Re: Clutch problems after CDV delete

Is your pressure bleeder holding 10 psi? You have no flow when you open the bleeder screw?

Re: Clutch problems after CDV delete

What do you mean "can't hold any pressure"?

You now have air in the system. Probably now in the ABS as well.

You need to ensure the reservoir is full, then do a full, proper flush in the right...

Re: Driving impressions with euro/convex side mirrors

I have them on my track car - where I can use all the perspective I can get (Halo seat). Not a huge difference - but a good feature.

Re: Is this M3 ZCP a good deal?

The correct answer is..... get a PPI and understand what you are buying.

Carfax is little value.
