USA probs with suspension towers

Post by ZZZEMMCO » Wed 25 Jan, 2006 12:41

US owners are getting very angry over evidence that some Z8,s are suffering deformed Suspension Towers, which are an integral part of the Aluminium spaceframe. :twisted: Reported in Autocar.Interesting to see the reaction from BMW NA in their worlds largest market.

I've been reading about that. such a shocker. Apparently the president of the z8 owners club is refusing to drive his anymore.

Talking of the z8's 18 months ago they were going for 50k - 55k now they fetching 60k+ !!!

I guess this may be a real headache for BMW if they have to recall all the Z8's and do an $80,000.00 frame job on all of them.
