But they don't get in the way of me using Schmiedmann or FCPEuro... genuine parts are genuine parts after all.

It's less expensive for me to buy BMW parts from either and have them shipped to New Zealand than it is for me to get the same part from a local dealer. By about 35%! And often faster also.

I've been on fcpeuro and great site but it's American. The parts will 've for the American spec m3 surely and that's a different motor/cooling system......isn't it?

Plug in the part number you get from realoem or elsewhere. I've never had a problem (purchased a Euro radiator off them just a little while back).

Actually watching out for the LHD/RHD variants is the most important I found!
