Hey guys, I'm after some new bmw parts genuine / aftermarket.( Mainly suspension / steering) Does anyone know of any businesses that are cheap lol . I'm west of Brisbane, but I'm sure most companies post these days.

New parts for my e36, eBay was pretty good to me for parts from Europe and Asia. I trust eBay more that the dodgy foreigners in Melb that 'specialise' in BMW parts

Hey hey. Can I pick your brain on e36's? Im think my next car will be an turbo m50 powered e36 but Im only at the research stage. Vaneos or no vaneos, ecu tuning or aftermarket, ect ect.
I've never tuned a M50 vanos or non-vanos before. I do remember talking to a guy about it in the BMW club at a meet and he sold his vanos because of the cost for an ECU/Chip that could handle dealing with vanos when he wanted to chase some bigger killer wasps. I think he said there was a difference in valve too that wasn't really favourable. I've not owned M50s

LS1 swap? :) That's a project I'm wanting to do

I've sourced some BMW parts off a local guy who advertises on AllClassifieds. Bought fans, fuse boxes switches etc for half of the wreckers prices

I'd also look in the UK, I managed to get Rangie parts for my classic always lower (incl freight) landed from the UK than locally. Parts usually arrived within a couple of weeks of order placement

euro parts were frighteningly cheap compared to Oz prices when I stayed in the UK and Germany. I've got a german euro vehicle wrecker setup in my ebay alerts, so I'll post the name next time an alert trips

update:
this is the shop I've used quite a few times for merc, beemer and rangie leccy parts
