Are there any parts I should look for in Germany?

I just got stationed in Germany for a year and I'm wondering if there are any parts I should look for out here for my Z4MR that I might not be able to buy back in the states. I have noticed a ton of Z4s around here, and even some BMWs you cant buy in the states like a 5 door 1M. Are there any parts that I could buy out here for my car that are either hard to get or not available in the states?

I am interested in the spoiler so I filled out the contact info about a month ago, but never heard back from them.

And Z4M Euro Section 1 (as per our earlier thread, inTgr8r )

I used to live in Germany, and in my experience, parts aren't any cheaper there really; especially wheels. Only benefit really is availability. ie. being able to get many good quality coilovers and body parts very quickly.

Nekky, thats what I'm looking for, stuff that I may not be able to purchase stateside that I could more easily buy out here. The price is usually about the same after exchange rate anyways.

The spoiler looks kinda cool, but I dont know if I would want it on my car.

CSL headers... sounds interesting. I don't browse the forums too much, whats so special about them and why is it something I should look for out here?

CSL headers can come from any S54 E46 M3 or Z4M. *Actual* CSL headers are slightly lighter and are missing a small "ding" in the headers. The difference in performance in negligible, so everyone just calls any Euro header a CSL header, basically. The difference is that there are no primary cats in the Euro versions, as there are in the North American versions. Euro cars only run 2 cats, USDM cars run 4. They are good for about 20whp on a dyno, and more with a tune and freer flowing exhaust.

Plus the make the car sound way "better".

So is this a BMW part or an aftermarket part? Where would I be able to buy these?

Maybe my naming is incorrect, but here it is
BMW M135i

I've seen them all over the place. Let alone the 3 door and 5 door 1series all over the place, they're really popular out here, but not sold in the US I dont think. At least I have never seen them, and they aren't on bmwusa.com

Again, where can I find CSL headers?

Some euro only individual trim pieces for the interior, no reflector bumper if that floats your boat.

Ah yeah, those are just what replaced the M-Sport 135i.
