Brake Discs

Post by Monster666 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 11:02 pm

I want to replace all 4 discs on my '06 Z4M E85

Also need a few other parts like engine undertray, front inner wheel arches

Are there any OEM suppliers who give discounts for forum members?

Brake discs are probably cheapest from one of the dealers that sponsor forums, e.g. Sopers, Cotswold Cheltenham or Rybrook Warwick.

Just mention the forum you’re on and ask for a quote (i.e. Z4-Forum for Sopers, and M3Cutters for the other two), but you may be asked for a forum user name for a quote.

Cheapest I’ve seen is about £250 for the front pair.

I belive the OEM discs are made by ATE. You might get the best price for these from Euro Car Parts or Carparts4Less. Join both their email lists and it won't be long till you get some good discount voucher codes. Before Christmas Euro Car Parts had 50% off their ATE discs.

The dealers were selling them for less than either of those, and you don’t have to mess around with ‘fake’ savings offers all the time.

I agree. I got my front discs with a ridiculous discount from Sytner BMW in Leicester after haggling by quoting forum prices from other retailers, including other bmw dealers. I got them for less than Eurocarparts, after the massive discount on the website prices.
At the time i did feel it was all a bit of a piss taking exercise, really....

Plenty of dealers sell them on eBay, so just go on there and order.

I paid £66.00 inc VAT and delivery for a pair of ATE rear discs (which I believe are OEM). From ECP before Christmas. If you pay £250 to a dealer will you end up with exactly the same part?

You need to add the discount at the basket “weekend14” at present as shown on their page banner.
