There are quite a few places who offer parts, most of these can be found in one of the BMW Performance mags. However, most of them do not cater for M3's, especially e30's. If you join the BMWCC you can get 10% off at all main dealers. Alternatively, I have bought stuff from the states and had it shipped over. If you get a few people together this can work out the most inexpensive way of getting stuff. A dizzy cap and rotor will set you back 100+ over here, you will pay the same in the states but in dollars.


who do you guys order you OEM parts from?

1) It is no problem driving a left hooker in the UK. People always say it's difficult to overtake, utter crap. The same technique applies left or right hand drive, choose the right place, hang back, then squirt past.

2) Can't help in that area.
3) Anywhere from 22 to 35, according to the computer. Driven sanely they are really very fuel efficient.

Get one, forget trying to drive fast on the roads, that's for clowns, book up some track days and ENJOYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.


Just a couple of questions from a prospective owner

1) How do you get on driving a left hooker on UK roads. 2) Does anyone know of a decent specialist in the Midlands area for servicing etc.
3) What sort of MPG do you get

Thanks in advance
