yes can be driven with out any worries. Did the same oem plugs go in ? You can have one or more o2's that need to be replaced they dont last forever and should be treated like sparkplugs as a item to be replaced at a certain mileage your service manual might tell you when bmw suggest it. you can put it on a scanner with live data and check the operation of them they each shoul be swicthing above and below 500 rich to lean lean to rich. also live data is a easy way to look at mass air and other sensors . you can also check the cat easy way is use a temp gun check to see with the engine warmed up if there is over a 100 degree diff between in and out. you can have it hooked up to a gas ana and they can check hc co this will tell a good mechanic alot.

Enter the 5-digit Radio Code using the radios station preset buttons. After entering the fifth digit press the > button and the radio will activate. Any presets you had before the power loss will return. Apparently a capacitor in the radio holds that information

It is left handed thread.

There are two little fasteners at the top side end of either side of the shroud. Just take a very small flat-head screwdriver and pry out the middle pin part (they are just pressed in anyway) and take the outer part. Don't lose them as they should be reusable (unlessed you monkeyed them out with channel-locks, haha). Then slide the shroud up to unhook it from the top AND bottom (note where it hooks at the bottom when you go to put it back in). The fan needs to be unbolted now so the whole thing can be slid out as one piece.

Put some nice pulleys on while you are in there!

HI it just sounds like a faulty airbag sensor, these are common on all bmw's try getting the local dealer to reset it or alternative is to replace the sensor,
Hope this helps

2000 BMW Z3 | Answered on Mar 19, 2009

it sounds like the oxygen sensor, air mass meter. check the crankcase breather pipe behind the engine ( cracks, common problem), it would be wise to have a computer diagnostic done, it will save u time and money
