The BMW Z8 was a roadster car produced by German automaker BMW from
2000-2003. It was given the E52 BMW model code.
The Z8 was the production variant of the 1997 Z07 concept car, which was
designed by Henrik Fisker at BMW's DesignworksUSA in Southern California.
The Z07 originally was designed as a styling exercise intended to evoke and
celebrate the 1956-'59 BMW 507. The Z07 caused a sensation at the '97 Tokyo
Auto Show. The overwhelming popularity of the concept spurred BMW's
decision to produce a limited production model called the Z8. There were
5,703 Z8s built, approximately half of which were exported to the U.S.
From concept to production
The original Z07 had been designed with production in mind. As a result,
practical and regulatory considerations necessitated very few changes for
the production model. Nevertheless, the windshield of the Z8 was extended
upward, and a larger front airdam was fitted. Both changes were implemented
to provide aerodynamic stability and a reasonably placid cockpit
environment. The four-spoke steering wheel of the concept car was replaced
by a three spoke design. The hardtop was changed from a double-bubble form
with a tapering faring to a single dome with a truncated convex backside.
The concept's exotic driver's side helmet fairing was eliminated to allow
easy operation of the power soft top.
Despite these changes, the Z8 remained extremely faithful to the concept
car. The side-mounted turn indicators were integrated into the side vents
in a fashion that rendered them invisible until activated. The vintage
simplicity of the interior was preserved by hiding the modern equipment
under retracting panels. Complex compound curves were preserved through the
use of an expensive MIG-welded aluminum space frame. The Z8 even retained
the concept's five-spoke wheel design, albeit without the race-style center
The $128,000 car had an all aluminum chassis and body and used a 4.9 L
(4941 cc) 32-valve V8, that developed 400 hp (300 kW) and 500 N·m (370
ft·lbf) torque. This engine, known internally as the S62, was built by the
BMW Motorsport subsidiary and was shared with the E39 M5. The engine was
located behind the front axle in order to provide the car with 50/50 weight
distribution. The factory claimed a 0--100 km/h (0--62 mph) time of 4.7
seconds; Motor Trend magazine achieved 0--96 km/h (0--60 mph) in 4.2
seconds. Road and Track measured the car's lateral grip at .92. Car and
Driver magazine also tested the car and found that it outperformed the
contemporary benchmark Ferrari 360 Modena in three important performance
categories: acceleration, handling, and braking. As with most BMW products,
its top speed was electronically limited to 155.4 mph (250 km/h); the car's
maximum top speed with an unlocked chip was 186 mph (299 km/h)[citation
The Z8 included an innovative use of neon exterior lighting. The tail
lights and turn indicators are powered by neon tubes that offer quicker
activation than standard lightbulbs and are expected to last for the life
of the vehicle.
Every Z8 was shipped with a color-matching metal hardtop with rear
defroster. Unlike many accessory hardtops, which are provided for practical
rather than stylistic considerations, the Z8 hardtop was designed from the
outset to complement the lines of the roadster.
In order to keep the interior uncluttered, a number of convenience
functions were integrated into multifunction controls. For example, the
power windows and mirrors were controlled by a single instrument. Also, the
center-mounted instrument cluster was canted slightly toward the driver.
The displacement of these gauges to the middle of the dash was intended to
offer an unimpeded view of the hood and the road ahead.
In order to promote the Z8 to collectors and reinforce media speculation
about the Z8's "instant classic" potential, BMW promised that a 50-year
stockpile of spare parts would be maintained in order to support the Z8
fleet. Due to the limited volume of Z8 production, all elements of the car
were constructed or finished by hand, thereby compounding the importance of
ongoing manufacturer support for the type. The price point and production
process allowed BMW to offer custom options to interested buyers. A
significant number of Z8s with nonstandard paint and interior treatments
were produced over the course of the four-year production run by BMW
Individual, a division of BMW AG.
As a Bond car
The car was featured in the 1999 James Bond film The World Is Not Enough
and in the games James Bond 007: Agent Under Fire and 007 Racing. In the
film, it was sliced in half by a helicopter equipped with tree-cutting saws

Replacing a BMW Daytime Running Light
If your dashboard indicator tells you a light is out it may be the Halo /
DRL / Angel eye light that is burned out. It's that cool set of rings
around each headlight. Mark takes you through all the steps and tricks it
takes to change the light yourself if you're the kind of person that likes
to save a couple hundred bucks (Canadian)
