Interesting to see fronts are a 'popular' failure now the cars are aging, the rears went so damned quickly it was crazy - according MOTs my car had replacement rear coils at 3 yrs 15k miles and I replaced them again a couple of years ago :o

Not broke but MOT advisory said one was corroded on my coupe so replaced both rear with Suplex due to a number of recommendations on here. Hopefully can forget about them now

If anyone else is as confused as I was when choosing the right suplex springs on eBay, link to their catalogue showing each spring code for each z4

I'm another.

Rear N/S. Replaced both myself last night, but the rear near side is making creaking noises. Should i be worried? :headbang:

That's the one, they always seem to break about there. Very very common unfortunately.

Are the suplex ones you linked to sided or can I just buy 2 of the same? Also I can assume the different shape of the spring doesn't matter?

Thanks for the help!

If you own a E85-86 you will have a broken spring at some point. Case closed 8)

Ahh, just spotted that eBay as says they're for M-suspension. I'll need to have a dig for standard SE ones
