Are the headlights not the same as other Z4's then.? Why does it have to be a Z4M specific headlight :?

Unfortunately they're not. The z4m has bi-xenons with the halo ring sidelight.
I think a normal z4 just has a standard xenon.

There isn't such a thing as a standard xenon. They are all Bi-Xenon's

Any facelift xenon should be the same regardless of model AFAIK though RealOEM suggests only the 3.0si headlight is the same part number as the M.

I don’t believe this is correct, I think you will find that they are the same on m and non m versions depending on the car specification. Mine for instance has bi-xénons with halo ring and it is only the 3l non m version.

I just like the fact that you consider non-M cars 'normal'. :D

I didnt mean anything in a badge snobbery way, I'm certainly not one of those who do that. I remember being on m3 pages on fb where owners would literally rip the crap out of someone if they posted a really smart 330 or something. Having owned such cars myself I still admire them.

There’s someone on eBay breaking a Z4M - not clear what parts are left but may be worth sending them a message.

Also, Quarry Motors break BMWs and usually have a fair amount of stock. Don’t think you can buy online, so might be worth a phone call.

I stripped the insides of my lights, would those parts help you? Igniters, the whole bit. I just kept the casing.
