  • What is the hardest to find/rarest part on your car?

    Mine is that stupid M/// Momo horn button. I got it into my mind that I had to have it about 4 years ago. I finally got one after 6 months of searching. Getting it took forever and it was pricey.

    I have been offered up to $75 for it, not for sale pal.


    What special parts have you chased down? Post a picture if you have it.

    I would be almost as happy just to get a "BMW" horn button. Haven't found one, although I haven't really looked very hard.

      Mine was a set of original red capped spark plug leads for my Sport Evo. Took me ages to find and I paid a fortune for them.

          Maybe my Racing Dynamics RGRs sized specifically for the e30 M3, no spacers needed. However, that is working against me as I busted one and can't find another for the life of me!!

              I've got a bunch of rare parts on my car that I hunted in Germany or ebay.de but the best part was the pair of Original BMW Motorsport 'Grp. A' mirrors that I got for $50 (they needed fixing though)

                Probably the M technic deadpedal and the 17x8 2pc Epsilon wheels.

                        I have a whole set, they are 16*8 RD RGR's for the E30 M3 as well. They are in the garage collecting dust.

                        But my rarest items are my 17" ACS Type I Racing, and ACS Deadpedal from the E30 days... (not the new ones)... Sport Evo headers...

                          I'll go with some Euro stuff I have: Rear headrest back seat, Rear sunshade/parcel shelf, check panel and OBC w/ German lettering, aux. gas tank that fits in the trunk. I have an Evo 3 cam too, heard they may be NLA so may become harder to find soon...

                              Charlie,

                              I just bought a new EVOIII cam from the dealer a few days ago - so you can still get them.

                              Cheers
