And the discs of course. As for bias and such like. I have gone from 275 mm front discs with single piston calipers to 365mm discs with 6 piston calipers with no ill effects in the past and the car does not swap ends.

Re: I’m looking for Z3M mirrors

I mean BMW Germany have both RHD and LHD.

You can order which you want from any BMW dealer.

There is a myth that Z3M mirrors are no longer made by BMW. This is simply untrue. I repeatedly see them up for £500 a pair in used condition.
Just pick up the phone and order them new.
I hope this helps you.

Which side?
I may have a 2.8 trailing arm if you want one.

The way to tell is to look at the carrier/hub section and look at the lower damper mount.
If it is 1.9 it will look considerably shorter than the other side,if that one is in fact 2.8.
