    I think this is a great idea. Occasionally I will stumble across something Z8 related but not something I need, it would be nice to use the forum to alert other members of their availability.

    Great find Bill. IMO it is overpriced. On the other hand fair priced when it is in this condition

    Why am I not surprised that you already have one, still in the original box, of course!

    I am sorry I didn't get a chance to see your collection of Z8 memorabilia during our visit last month. It would be great if you could post pictures of some of your more unusual pieces if you ever have the time.

    Bill the owner of this watch is Andrew. I lost "mine" last year because of a breakdown of Ebay so I could not bid just before ending. It was won by someone who bid before the breakdown for 200 euro :-( I will have look in my cave :-)

    Looks like it's Stratus. If so, maybe someone in here "needs to have it."

    I have the model and it is "stratus like" I compared it with a sample of the original paint color and there is a slight difference

    This key holder is from the first batch of key holders and belongs to a 2000/2001 car.

    The difference is quality of leather: the offered one is made of soft leather and with the later ones they used thick leather

    I guess it is like the book, covers ...even hard top: forgotten items when the car was sold.

    I asked the seller of the key holder if he knew the VIN of the car for the key. He did not.

    According to my BMW dealership in Switzerland, a pair of new revised tail lights will soon sell for about €4,000 plus taxes. Jurgen confirmed he was working with BMW on this. He also showed me some pictures of early production. This is a lot of money for tail lights but not as much as the insane price predictions that have been floating around. Paying the same price for a set manufactured 15 years ago and with a known flaw does not seem like a bright idea but time will tell.

    I think that it has to do with ignorance: I meet Z8 owners who do not know anything from the car. They don't attend forums, they are no member of the Z8 club. Than they panic on the moment the tail light gives in and they read all the old news about backlog in production etc etc.

    Our own Andrew Macpherson commissioned those a few years back for a group buy. They are neat little pieces and just about everyone of our friends has asked at some point, "how did they get that Z8 in there?" Wonder who is selling theirs.

    Nice find. They have a lot of other Z8 items. No pictures for any of them however...

    It's a different shape to the one I made up, and at that price it's also about half of what it cost us to make up the custom made ones we did a few years back - I confess I just ordered one of these too :-)

    That was my thought too. One Hamann bar on the driver's side and no bar on the passenger side like an old school Cobra?

    I was looking at EBAY this morning and found these items which might be of interest to someone:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-OEM-Z8-S...hWldLU&vxp=mtr
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-Individu...NWldNb&vxp=mtr
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-Z8-Tonne...NWkKAx&vxp=mtr

    The "Individual" sill plates are undoubtedly rare, but may be of interest only to someone whose car was originally ordered through the Individual program. The boot cover is priced right, but the leather looks a little wrinkled.

    The Cover has a good price: Retail $1400. I have seen the sill plate in an "ordinary" Z8 with individual leather Interior . I even recall that the "Z8 Individual" has the "ordinary sill plate" :-)

    That’s correct, only they are good as new and not new, it also says it’s from a private stock.

    You may want to know that “mit bestem Lederpflegemittel behandelt” means they treated the leather with the finest wax (whatever that may be of course )

    Thanks! If they were Sport Red, I might have been interested.

    Sad to see that the values on the books have collapsed in that previous post, $500 and it still didn't sell.

    It is just the book without box and leather wrapper so I think it was overpriced.
