    You should keep an eye on the US Ebay also, things like this do appear there too.

    Hello Benoit, the outer case of the first aid kit is vinyl, not real leather.

    From memory its just a standard BMW part, it isn't Z8 badged, so it should be easy to find.

    My first-aid kit is long and skinny, but it's a BMW OEM kit. It fits next to the triangles under the trunk floor and leaves the space on the left for the tire-inflator kit atop a square liter of Liqui Moly 10-60.

    Satch, you sure you're not looking in the trunk of your Z4? I'm pretty sure the Z8 came with a rectangular first aid kit, similar to the one Benoit showed in post #1. Also pretty sure the Z8 did not come with a safety triangle, nor did it come with a tire inflation kit!

    My triangle(s) didn't come with the car, nor did the first-aid kit. The kit I procured is similar the the one shown on RealOEM.com. The triangle in my Z4 fits in a Euro-only bracket. The Z8 has a set of brackets by the battery that neatly hold TWO Euro triangles!

    The Alpina did come standard with the tire inflation kit, but I believe thatís because it did not have run flats and, of course, no spare. Itís the same standard BMW tire inflation kit you could buy from the BMW Parts shop, not specifically BMW Roadster V8 (Z8). Sadly it did not come with a safety triangle either.
    Thanks,
