PicMonkey Collage BMW Z3 and ///M Front, Rear & Body Brace Struts COMBO Kit - NLA
$0.00

This product is NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

A properly engineered shock tower strut reduces or eliminates the chassis and shock tower flex that occurs during hard cornering and driving over uneven, bumpy surfaces. When used in combination, the Front Strut, Rear Strut and Body Brace sets provide outstanding results and a remarkable improvement in the rigidity of the car. The 3 units acting together contribute significantly to the structural integrity of the car and improve maneuverability by maintaining the proper wheel camber and suspension geometry, providing a much "tighter" and "robust" chassis feel over bumpy roads. Designed to appear as original manufacturers equipment, not like an added aftermarket accessory, built to higher quality standards with superior materials and offered at a much lower price than the competitive products, this discounted combination package sets a new standard in design and value. The stunning appearance will add to the beauty and sportiness of your sculpted Z3 especially with the addition of chrome plating on your front strut brace!

This set is CNC-machined from solid aircraft grade 6061 alloy and heat treated to T-6 specifications for added strength, breaking new ground in the alloy strut field by utilizing an exclusive "Direct Block Pivotless Design." Extremely robust and immovable, this design features an extended cross bar that attaches directly to the tower ring block without the need for additional fittings. There are no pivot points, hollow tubes or stamped components in the construction. In addition, there is a massive, proven, two inch wide and one half inch thick, machined alloy cross bar with weight saving, decorative, drilled holes. Fits all models of Z3 Roadsters and ///M series including the S54 engine. It does NOT fit 4 cylinder models due to lack of room for the cross bar.

The available stock colors are Black and Silver powder coating. Chrome plating is available for the Front Strut Braces only for an additional $300 and will take an additional 3-4 weeks due to the three steps involved in the restoration grade process. A two year warranty is included on the powder coat and chrome plate finishes. 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on the part for the life of the car against fracture or failure (for any unmodified BMWs without after-market performance accessories already installed, not including collisions or deformations of any kind). CLICK on the pictures or titles of the individual products listed below for additional images. Full product descriptions and installation instructions can also be found below each individual product listing below. This is the perfect performance package enhancement and a must have item for any Roadster enthusiast!

This is an oversized shipment, $30.00 will be added to the normal S/H charges.

Rear Strut5 BMW Z3, E30 and ///M Rear Strut Brace - NLA
$359.95

This product is NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

The Rear Strut Brace provides significant bracing and reinforcement to the rear section of these models. Although it appears to be bolted to the sub-frame/rear axle carrier, it actually bolts to the chassis by utilizing the rear sub-frame mounting brackets that support the sub-frame assembly. The sub frame itself is above the mounting brackets and is mounted in large rubber bushings that allow considerable movement but also isolate road noise and vibration. Although the sub frame is a massive assembly, it offers no rigidity to the rear body structure since it is mounted in rubber. The rear strut brace is bolted to the same brackets but below the sub frame. This placement results in direct reinforcement of the chassis since the rear strut brace is effectively bolted to the chassis/body. This not only reinforces the chassis itself but also helps maintain proper toe angles of the rear wheels. The rear end "wiggling" is caused by changing toe angles when cornering or driving over uneven surfaces. Most owners report a significant improvement after installing both front and rear strut braces as they seem to compliment each other. This product is designed to appear as original manufacturers equipment, not like an added aftermarket accessory, built to higher quality standards with superior materials and offered at a much lower price than the competitive products, setting a new standard in design and value.

This alloy Rear Strut Brace is CNC-machined from solid aircraft grade 6061 alloy and heat treated to T-6 specifications for added strength. It's all one solid piece and mounts under the car near the front of the rear wheels and is a very simple installation. Since the rear strut brace can't be seen unless you intentionally look under the car, they all come powder coated in a Black textured finish. The rear strut brace is longer than the front one and spans the entire width of the car with a reinforcement beam to tighten up the rear end and force the car to follow the front when you point it into a turn. One driver said it felt like the car had rear wheel steering. When driving over bumps, the car reacts as one piece rather than reacting in "sections" with a bunch of wiggling. The additional rigidity is quite noticeable and evokes more confidence and certainty in tight turns when "G" forces are rapidly switching sides. Fits all models of Z3 Roadsters, E30 series and corresponding ///M series including the S54 engine.

NOTE: IMPORTANT INFORMATION about the Rear Strut Brace's ground clearance below!
Please be advised that the addition of a rear strut brace may reduce your ground clearance. Since various models have some differences and there are a lot of aftermarket suspensions and wheel/tire options out there, we can't be more specific than this. The prototype has been road tested on a 2000 ///M Roadster with a Dinan stage 3 suspension without an incidents. The Dinan kit lowers the stock ///M Roadster by 1/2 inch. On any of the current Z3 models, the rear strut brace will have approximately the same clearance as the bottom of the front air dam or the rear bar of the OEM “X” brace. If ground clearance is an issue with any potential customer, we suggest you do not purchase the rear strut brace. If you do install one, we suggest that you measure the distance from the bottom of the strut to the ground and keep the measurement nearby. Avoid straddling any road objects that exceed this dimension since striking a solid object may cause damage to the vehicle. The cross bar is a very robust structure, 1/2 inch thick and 2 inches wide solid cold rolled steel. Although not tested for crash worthiness, it should be able to withstand a fairly solid hit. The pictures of the installed strut show its orientation and the fact that it could be vulnerable to large objects passing beneath the vehicle. It’s location and strength may prevent damage to the differential from straddled objects.

The only available stock colors is Black powder coating. Chrome plating is available for an additional $300 and will take an additional 3-4 weeks due to the three steps involved in the restoration grade process. A two year warranty is included on the powder coat and chrome plate finishes. 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on the part for the life of the car against fracture or failure (for any unmodified BMWs without after-market performance accessories already installed, not including collisions or deformations of any kind).

Body Brace Install4 BMW Z3 and ///M Body Brace (Set of 2)
$0.00

This product is NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

This is the only bracing product that addresses longitudinal flex of the Z3 chassis, and the improvement in rigidity is very dramatic. Any road surface that otherwise would cause flex (bending) in the center section of the body structure is eliminated. "Thrilling" is the only word to describe the results.

The Body Brace consists of two parallel, heavy gauge steel supports that span the entire under section of the passenger compartment and provide the required resistance to add considerable rigidity and greatly improve on the every day driving experience. Handling is substantially sharper as a result of the additional support. The uneven roads or rough railroad crossings that formerly made you wince will no longer be an issue following installation. This product will reduce or eliminate the sheet metal flexing that most Z3 owners complain about and is designed to appear as original manufacturers equipment, not like an added aftermarket accessory, built to higher quality standards with superior materials and offered at a much lower price than the competitive products, setting a new standard in design and value. Fits all models of Z3 Roadsters and ///M series including the S54 engine.

A Rear Strut Brace IS REQUIRED FOR INSTALLATION of the Body Brace in order to secure the Body Brace supports to the rear of the vehicle. The front of the supports bolt to existing body parts. Use of a Front Strut Brace is not required for the Body Brace installation but when used in combination, the three units acting together provide outstanding results and a remarkable improvement in the rigidity of the car.

The available stock colors are Black and Silver powder coating. Chrome plating is available for an additional $300 and will take an additional 3-4 weeks due to the three steps involved in the restoration grade process. A two year warranty is included on the powder coat and chrome plate finishes. 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on the part for the life of the car against fracture or failure (for any unmodified BMWs without after-market performance accessories already installed, not including collisions or deformations of any kind). CLICK on the picture or title above for additional images. This is the perfect performance enhancement and a must have item for any Roadster enthusiast!

NOTE: Since there are innumerable after-market suspension products along with wheel, tire and other product combinations that may reduce ground clearance, please be advised the satisfaction guarantee does not include issues related to ground clearance and/or " bottoming out", so be sure you have considered this before placing your order. 

Installation of the Body-Brace may reduce the ground clearance of your vehicle from 1/4 to 1/2 inch. If you have aftermarket suspension products that have lowered your car already, the addition of the Body-Brace may cause you to bottom out on some speed bumps, rolled curbs or other similar obstructions. However, stiffer springs or shock settings may prevent bottoming out due to the shorter suspension travel of these products. The Installation instructions clearly define the optimal installation, and extra spacers are provided to obtain the greatest ground clearance in your vehicle. In some cases, this may not be sufficient to prevent bottoming out under certain conditions. The test vehicle was a 2000 ///M Roadster with a Dinan Stage III suspension kit and is 1/2 inch lower than non ///M Models.  In approximately 20,000 miles of road testing under varied conditions, there have been no ground clearance issues on the test car.

aero_duct3 BMW Z3 Aero Ducts (Set of 2) - NLA
$0.00

This product is NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

Aero Ducts divert the air flow currents in front of the rear tires and help to prevent hydroplaning while also working toward noise reduction in convertibles. The air ducts change the pressure in the wheel house, ideally to improve the aerodynamic resistance and axle buoyant force. Since the wheels/wheel house account for about 30% of total aerodynamic resistance, the aero ducts are an exceptional enhancement to improve the air flow in that area of the vehicle.

This set of 2 BMW Z3 Aero Ducts replaces the unsightly factory plastic units that often split, crack and deteriorate from impacts with road debris after less than a year of service. Replacing them with OEM factory parts every year at approximately $35 per set may not be very cost effective. This powder coated set is fabricated from aluminum alloy with parts riveted together and will last the lifetime of your Roadster with reasonable care!

Wheelpins Collage BMW Universal Wheel Pins (Set of 2)
$0.00

This product is NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

 A HANDY TOOL FOR CHANGING WHEELS

Since BMWs have lug BOLTS instead of lug NUTS, there is nothing to hold the wheel against the hub when the bolts are removed and it simply drops. This is not very user-friendly and you have to be ready to hold the wheel and support the weight when the bolts are removed. Sometimes the wheel can drop and scratch itself against the exposed wheel hub.  The set of two BMW Universal Wheel Pins solves this problem.

Simply remove two of the lug bolts and screw in a Wheel Pin in each location, then remove the remaining lug bolts. The Wheel Pins support the weight of the wheel so you can simply pull the wheel toward you and it will slide off the end of the Wheel Pins. Reverse the procedure for mounting the wheel by sliding two of the wheel holes onto the Wheel Pins and push the wheel against the hub. Insert two lug bolts to hold the wheel in place and then remove the Wheel Pins and install the remaining lug bolts. The photo shows a hole drilled in the end of the tool but that is unnecessary and has been eliminated. Fits all BMWs.

This is the perfect accessory and a must have item for any Roadster enthusiast!
