Want to turn your stock BMW into a works-style race car? BMW has finally made its factory Motorsport parts catalogs available to customers in the United States.
Previously available only in Europe, parts and components are available for the 2009-current Z4, 1995-current M3, and the 2006-current 3 Series sedan, although the 3 Series catalog is labeled for the Euro-spec 320si. The catalogs are extensive and feature parts from full-on race engines and body pieces to the smallest O-rings and assorted gaskets. A pricing structure is unavailable but you can bet these racing-derived goodies will set you back a pretty penny.
Currently, only four BMW dealers in the United States have been authorized to handle these parts: Laurel BMW in Westmont, Illinois, Global Imports in Atlanta, Georgia, BMW of Stratham in New Hampshire, and BMW of Cleveland in Solon, Ohio. Bavarian fans can also visit the BMW Motorsports Web page to view the catalogs.
As with the majority of vehicular performance components and accessories, these BMW Motorsport parts are intended for track and racing use only.
