    Wind Protector / Tire Iron

    I have a very early 2000 Z8 and do not have a wind protector for it. I looked on the window sticker and it does not list this option or accessory for the car. Does anyone have this option or accessory listed on their window sticker? It is mentioned in my owners manual and I am wondering if this is a missing item to my car.

    Also, where is the tire iron? Did these cars come without a jack and tire irons?

    The color matched wind deflector was included with every Z8, and is part number 54617030792 in Red. It sells for about $1600 at BMW as a special order.

    Also no tire iron as the car was supplied with Run Flat tires from the factory, doing away with the need for jack, spare, tire irons et al.

    Most of us use non-run flat tires as they are better on the road, and safer for the chassis. I carry a few tins of that flat goo, and my AAA Premium card whenever I take her out.

    Thanks Andrew, goods news on the tire iron and jack, but sad to see I didn't get the wind protector when bought. I guess I will have to schedule that upgrade to make the car complete. Pretty expensive for what it looks like.

    Keep an eye on EBay, I've found a spare on there for a couple of hundred bucks before.
