More on Z3 Body Gaps

The specifications for the Z3 and Z3/M coupe body gaps are generally 5 mm all around.  The front bumper is not supposed to be flush with the hood.  That is incorrect.  In fact, the body lines of the Z3 are supposed to be exactly 5 mm in a straight line... the body gap is part of the styling.
