    Online Parts info and shop

    Hi everyone,

    I guess most of you know this website where you can find the reference number of any part of a BMW: http://realoem.com/bmw/partgrp.do?mo...1&mospid=47735

    This site also has a full breakdown of the BMW repair manual - http://tis.spaghetticoder.org/e52/Z8_(S62)_ROADST/

    But this website might interest you: http://www.online-teile.com/bmw/ All you need to do is to insert the part number in the search bar at the top of the page and you can order it from this website. You can find almost any vehicle part.

    I've already ordered many parts for my Mini Cooper S: their shipping costs are reasonable and they ship pretty fast.

    For instance, these are the links for the rear lights (if you want to import a US or a European Z8) : http://www.online-teile.com/bmw/adva...23523&x=14&y=9
    http://www.online-teile.com/bmw/adva...923524&x=9&y=9

    I hope this link might help you!

    Ben

    These guys are great and this is actually BMW of Silver Springs (MD) so all true OEM.

    Unfortunately these EU based suppliers are only allowed to send within the EU.

    Sadly I'm finding it nearly impossible to locate parts to resolve outstanding issues with my newly acquired 2001 Z8. No one seems to have the parts, quoting 3-4 week lead times from Germany (and we all know that's optimistic!) or parts that seem to be NLA (eg, the seat control knobs, the trunk vent grille). I've tried numerous sites, so has BMW really turned their back on these cars as much as it has appeared to me? Are there any reliable vendors that reproduce Z8 parts that BMW no longer seems interested in producing?

    Sadly the whole 50 year parts guarantee seems to have been a lie that we all bought into, but I believe that BMW Classic in Munich is meant to be taking charge of parts for the car, but not sure how useful they are these days? https://www.bmwgroup-classic.com/en.html

    I have not heard good things about trying to go down that path. I'm now on month #5 trying to get some oil filters for my 507...which THEY restored!!

    The Z8 club is frequently talking to BMW classic about this issue

    Aren't there any good vendors that reproduce some of the NLA parts...like every other marque on the planet?

    There's this vendor out of Lativia or Lithuania called GTV Trading that is the only one I've found that lists a few parts that seem to be NLA from BMW, yet they claim parts are BMW OEM. Not sure if real or a scam...
