Ok,

The car is up on jacks. Huge hole in the side wall of one tyre, the rest are ok but have crud between the wheel and side wall. It looks to me like i'm missing some under tray from the very front of the bumper and the one on the rhs is totally destroyed. Suspension and wishbones etc look ok. The most worrying thing is the damage to what i assume is the engine protector.

There's a load of pics here https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipN ... FXTDY4UjZ3

I'd massively appreciate some views on this and most importantly, is it safe on those axel stands!

Thanks

//M Badges. That's an extra 200bhp if you ever get it going again so worth saving!

Any fluids in the car? Brake fluid? Coolant?

At a guess it might be the whole front suspension upgrade / replacement that's required. I'd be getting passenger and drivers side replaced at the same time.

Undertray
Front Springs
Front Shockers
Wishbones
Lollipops
Front Bushes
Two new tyres on the front
Front bumper
Alignment
Service
Clean it

You should get change out of £1500 - 2000 maybe a bit less.

Yet! Love when someone saves a car! Lovely car when it’s all sorted. Z4 parts groups on Facebook have a number in the correct colour for £70 which is a bargain.

Is that the correct part or it the item Paddy posted not more relevant?

Is there structural damage to the front that we can't see?

Thanks, theres brake fluid and oil in it. she does run but i'm 90% certain there is a coolant leak.
Any advice on where to source those parts? Lots of sites say they do parts but most dont have the stock!

Hi All
I have a few questions that i'm hoping you can help with based on the attached image:
  • The two circles along the steering rods. the near side has a missing piece and the drivers side has retained it. Should i be worried about this?
  • The X, i'm struggling to source this, any ideas
  • The bottom X - is this simply a bash plate. its taken a right hit and i'm struggling to source one, any ideas
Thanks

Well if you need one of these I have one you can have for £100. :thumbsup:

Also have the metal undertray that you need as well.

not sure of your brake calipers/discs too a hit too, but I also have a pair of calipers, discs and pads that have done about 2,000 miles.

Your radiator also looks to haves some damage, I have one too :)

You are my new best friend. I'm not sure i'll need the full unit but i'll know soon. Callipers and Discs are good but i do need the plastic wheel arch cover from the drivers side front if you have that?
Agreed on the radiator, it has damage at the bottom but i'll know more when the bumpers off.


If you can pull together a list and price for these that would be great.
Thanks !
