So you just have to count the parts there 8)
Ah, but those might be bmw parts with an Alpina number so you get the pleasure of paying an Alpina tax :D
Do you have a link to the parts catalogue?

PerryGunn wrote:Not that I've ever seen...

The major areas that were changed are
- Engine
- Gearbox
- Exhaust
- Front Suspension
- Front Brakes
- Wheels
- Tyres (MPS non-runflats)
- Front & rear spoilers
- Seats
- Interior Trim
- Instrumentation

That's just off the top of my head so there's probably some categories that I've missed

The complete list will probably involve individual items such as all the interior trim changes and ancillary items such as the custom holder for the mobility kit in the boot
You've let me down Perry, I was expecting you to have a database with every change noted :poke:

Yeah, we use a rusty nail to mark each part, we could do a donation to Zedward for each part marked.
I think Alan will be well up for this :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

I have been told that the bonnet is made of Aluminium! Is that the same for the Z4?

Yes
Thought so, would have been done as a weight saving on such a large part I suspect. :thumbsup:

The Alpina doesn't have dipped beam green light in the dash.

(Hopefully that's not just me)
