    ID on ZF box

    Wasn't sure where to post this, but am looking to ID a manual ZF box. Identifiable numbers on the box: 1053401107 02222612218999 12219369012225 Based on the old Google I think it's originally from an E36 325tds, ie: a S5D 260Z but hoping someone has more knowledge here that can confirm. --- Next Q, if it is indeed a 260Z, how could I go about confirming which variation based on the physical box, or would I need the original VIN for clarification? IE: S5D 260Z - THML S5D 260Z - THMY --- Furthermore, if anyone has gear ratio knowledge - this is what I've managed to dig up online, just looking for confirmation these ratios are correct? Gear 325tds ZF S5D260Z M3 ZF S5D310Z S5D320Z G220 1st 5.09 4.20 4.23 2nd 2.80 2.49 2.52 3rd 1.76 1.66 1.66 4th 1.25 1.24 1.22 5th 1.00 1.00 1.00 R 4.71 3.89 4.04 BMW TIS Transmission designations.pdf
  2. After hook wrench for hard top, not soft. Would prefer the correct tool from the get go. Approx 50usd ex overseas, just fishing for one locally first. Exhaust is twin.
  3. Anyone have a hard top hook wrench for adjustment? P/n: 54211972684 Or known working solution without damaging any of the components, ie - I'm wary to slam vice grips in there etc.

  5. Hi Oli, fancy bumping into you here
  6. Oh nice, you're going proper period correct E30 fabric. Love it!
  7. Hey Sam! Colour is Montreal-blau (297). I re-trimmed the headliner with some fabric I scored from a Turkish outfit, but wish I'd gone with ASC Fabrics from the get go as they have really good reproduction fabrics. The dream initially was to go full M-Rain interior, but I've grown pretty fond of the Dove Grey especially after leaving her topless in the sun for a couple hours - no burnies.

IE: bumpers and twisty sideskirts, side trim, and clears ✅ Style 66 wheels (E39 offset) ✅ 5 speed ZF manual conversion ✅ M3 3.2 clutch + flywheel ✅ ZHP shift knob ✅ E46 purple tag steering rack ✅ Headliner retrimmed in M Rain ✅ Woodgrain trim updated to black/grey to match dash ✅ Antenna and airbox baffle delete Non OEM updates: ✅ CUPHOLDERS (3D printed so technically not OEM) ✅ Fancywide rear diffuser ✅ Height + camber adjustable coilovers ✅ LED flasher bulbs Few things I'm after, I'll make a WTB post also but if you have any of these spare pls give me a buzz!
