So Dave, perhaps it's not a good idea to buy the one at ebay, isn't it?

Where is located the sensor? Is it under the rear bumper, on the gas tank side?

Not sure regarding the ebay one, best way to describe it location is below the petrol filler on the rear wing. (the picture is looking into the right hand side of the right side rear wheel arch!)

Thanks a lot Dave.

Not sure of what to do then with the sensor at ebay. Perhaps I should wait for other part, or search for a salvage, but it will have to be a Z3M as I think that sensors for any other Z3 are not valid for our cars

Regards

My auction... I have two sensors, both working fine, holder is rusty because it is from UK Z3M from my experience all UK z3ms are rusty especially near side panels close to wheels ;)

Hi Emek

I'm really interested in one of them, as my temp gauge is now dead...

Would you accept a lower price? If you want we can talk through PM.

Please let me know

Thanks

Regards
