Would you consider buying pre owned? Not sure if it’s of interest but I have a 42mm steel on steel Omega Planet Ocean c/w box, papers, etc that may be up for sale soon. The model number is 232.30.42.21.01.001 and if I remember correctly it was purchased in late 2014 with me being the only owner. Not...

Roadster S suspension arms - BMW or Alpina part?

Hi all, It would appear that I need to replace the front suspension arms and bushes on the Roadster due to slight play in the ball joint. Now before I get bent over by the dealer tomorrow I was just wondering if anybody knows if it is an Alpina specific part or a plain Jane 3.0i part. Better still h...

Rear coils are standard Z4 - he suggested fronts are Alpina but would have to check. Interesting that you say that. When I bought my RS it had BMW springs on the rear and Alpina Eibach's on the front. I thought the previous owner had fitted the wrong springs on so I changed them all out! I had thes...

I have a set from my B10 lying about somewhere. If you don't ming buying a lightly used set I could do them for £25. I was going to list them for sale but this might save me the effort :D

FS: Sapphire Black Z4 Hard Top - North East Scotland!

This hard top started life as a Merlot Red example but I had it resprayed last year in Sapphire Black to go with the car. All interior linings and fixtures were removed prior to the respray and it's in pretty good condition given that it was done less than 15 months ago. It's currently on my car and...

OEM E85/E86 Car Cover for sale. I've only used it a handful of times for very short periods (overnight whilst mid "detail") and as I now have a garage it's unlikely that I will ever use it again. I don't have a picture of it on my car but the same cover can be seen at the following link... http://ww...

I didn't know that. When I bought the car it had BMW springs on the back which I thought was odd. The front also appeared to be lower than the back so I thought it was a mismatched set of springs (hence I changed the whole lot out). As a matter of interest what is the part number for the rear springs?

Guys, although the standard Z4 springs will fit I'm pretty sure the Alpina ones are made by Eibach. Here's a picture of my front springs...
