    Hi everyone,

    I am currently starting to rebuild a 100K S50B30 M3 engine for my new 1 series rally car and I will soon need to purchase some parts: gaskets, shells, rings, chain tensioners etc etc, My question is, where is the best/least expensive source to buy these parts from?

    Thanks,

    Martin

    Try these guys for some of that-

    You will need genuine BMW for some of that stuff as there isn't always an aftermarket supplier

    Chris @ CR-Mtec is very good and very helpful and best of all very quick. I urgently needed half moon plates for the exhaust side of my vanos and the parts actually arrived a day early which was excellent timing as the car was in for servicing at the time and waiting on the part before it could be finished off, I had told him this and he must have sent it immediately.

    For new parts try bmminiparts.co.uk. A lot of things are near half the price and best of all are all 100% OEM main dealer parts!

    HTH and all the best with the build, keep us updated.
