    Is the "reinforcement bracket" for the rear bumper still available?

    I looked on the Z8 Club web site and can't find any parts or accessories listed. Does anyone know if this part is still available or is there enough interest on the forum to do another production run?

    Ron, are you member of the international BMW Z8 Club, e.V.?

    I stock a few brackets at my business in Dallas for the Club. They are available to club members on a first come first served basis. The financial transaction goes through the club's Paypal account as I do this strictly as a courtesy to the club and its U.S. members who save overseas' freight that way.

    Let me know.

    Pat might be getting them from Christian (ZAchterbahn) where I got mine when I joined the club. It is very easy to put on yourself. You can send Christian a PM. He is a recent club board member and the bracket was developed by the club. Pat can be contacted by calling the Classic BMW in Dallas Service Dept. It is on their website. He is our primary dealer contact in Dallas for Z8's.

    Rehashing this old post after trying to contact Pat (At Classic BMW) several times over the last couple years. Does anyone know if the reinforcement brackets were ever made available again?

    Yes, that's what I've been looking for. Any chance it could be made available to owners that are not club members?
