    APEX Wheel order

    Hi Guys. We are doing an order with Apex for some local and race class customers. Mainly ARC-8 in various sizes and offsets. We'll hold a few sets in stock also. If anyone is interested in tagging along it will make the freight a lot for affordable for sets of rims! probably in the $50 to $60 kiwi's range for freight to get here. Possibly less if we get good numbers. Want to hit the go button in about two weeks. Pic's of 17 x 8.5 40p and 18 x 9.5 22p Thanks Evan

    e30 Coilovers

    We have a pretty complimentary range of setups for the E30. We keep 45mm and 51mm tube kits Unlike most other companies, we can tailor spring rates, shock valving, camber plates etc. We do a custom heavy rear spring to suit extremely lowered E30's and keep the rear geometry under control a bit better. We can do all the LVV stuff, welding corner weighting even!! Cheers Evan

Thanks Evan
  8. Not that we ever went anywhere, just very slack in participating. We apoligise for any PM's we didn't reply to, we were forum virgins ( and still are really) but we will do our best to not let this happen again. We now stock a very comprehenive range of engine components (pistons, rods, valve train, gaskets etc), clutch kits, suspension bushes, XYZ coilover and brakes just for BMW's We work with Cat Cams in Belgium, our conrod and crankshaft manufacturer Molnar Technologies & our aftermarket and custom pistons Wossner, so we are able to supply top quality engine components in nz. Fell free to contact us for any enquiries relating to the above topics. Check out our website to see what else we do.

    E30 Shocks and Springs help

    Hi, When you say you want to lower your coupe, how far are you talking as it does have a big affect on ride quality? An adjustable coilover package lets you sit the vehicle at the height you want but if you don't want to lower it more that 45mms there are a number of different shock and spring packages available like bilstien/koni. We have a few options that may suit you so PM us if you want to discuss them. Yes you will get a discount. Its hard to find a bolt exhaust on for BMW's due to the configuration, noise constraints, sound quality and so on so we make to suit.
  10. Will give you a call tomorrow to discuss some options, Thanks.Been working pretty hard on the desired rear spring rate that suits the best stance and the occasional pasenger. Will post some options shortly and clearify. On the topic of repacement and rebuildable shocks from XYZ-Racing We back up everything we sell across our range of performance and race shocks under the're normal expected, intended usuage, and carry a huge inventory of parts commonly expected to fail. All the adjustable components are removable from the fully threaded shock bodies. We supply assembled replacement shocks with different bump and rebound levels if need. Dont hesitate to contact me regarding any queries on quality and reliability. Thanks Evan
  11. Yes have E46 kits in stock now. Have a set in our E46 and rides great! Evan
  12. We have some new and improved XYZ rear springs for the rear of E30 for the seperate shock / spring setup. Its a stiffer rate than previously and spring length is only 110mm long. These offer max lowering and are stiff enough to stop bottoming out. Can be run in E36 as well. Spring rate is 670 lbs Sits the E30 rear the same as Sascha picture. Evan
  13. Geoff was meaning the rear upper mount.You can offset the top rear mount so to accomodate the rear spring diametre (of the complete coilover option) in the factory rear shock turrets. If you were building a car and fabricating cage into it at the same time, you'd go the turret option. Evan
  14. Hi all. We have a new range of wheels for BMW direct fitment. Available in 17 x 7.5 with 35p offset. Weight per rim 8.7kg Also available in 18 x 8 35p offset. Weight per wheel 9.8kg These are hub centric BMW fitment with 72.6mm centre bore. 5/120 pcd BMW centre cap logo's supplied if required. These rims offer great back clearance in spokes to give good caliper clearance. pricing starts from $750 set-4 for 17's. Happy to answer any questions.
  15. Hi all. Have a couple of new arrivals we would like to let you know about. Firstly E46 M3 style bumpers to fit the E36 sedan and coupe. These are a plastic bumper, not fibreglass. Has correct bumper to body mounts to enable an oe type fitment. These bumpers come complete with driving lights and grill mesh. Price is $495 inc gst Also E46 CSL bumpers. For the 98-04 models. Carbon lower extensions. Curently coupe in stock and sedans available if required. Check with us for pricing on the E46 due to model applications. We are planning an indent order for these bumpers if response is good. We will be stocking these, but little hard to keep on top of stock levels initially. Let us know if appeals to anyone and if you have any questions.
  16. Which is it to be!! Whats the general concensous on the prefered aftermarket shock for BMW Koni or Bilstein (if it was to be between these two)
  17. Speedfactor

    Prefered shock absorders

    Thanks for the feedback...Have always thought Bilstein has the upper hand with bump control on our stunning roads. Point with the H&R springs. Had the same affect on an Audi I owned. Added Neuspeed springs later and got better ride. Koni with rebound control being great for tuning to the conditions though.. We've always stocked alot more Bilstein, but keen to help out where we can for Koni. Keep it coming!

    BMW XYZ Coilovers

    Hi Everyone. Thought I'd kick things off with some info on the range of XYZ coilovers. Naturally, there is always plenty of discussion when new brands appear and coments about comparisons and forum chats are always researched. The reason we took on XYZ-Racing coilovers was for their range of competition coilovers for all forms of motorsport and simply the feedback we were getting from customers about ride quality and or lack of it!! for road going applications. Some interesting facts: -XYZ shock absorbers are their own design. Shock absorber valving both bump and rebound are different to all other brands coming from Taiwan. -XYZ Race valved shock absorbers are shorter stroke and we have option to change the valving to suit at the factory. These are a race dedicated shock absorber with incrediably accurate adjustments for rebound valving available. -We also have the flexibility to change spring rates to suit your requirements (within reason) -The shock absorbers are not interchangable with D2 K-Sport BC etc The range for BMW is reasonbly substaintial and we have custom options available as well. Models in stock are typically E30 45 and 51mm housing options. Road version with seperate rear spring and shock design and we offer a race version with complete converted rear coilover. (check with us for rear bodywork modification require to install) E36 all models inc M3. Carried in both road and race specification E46 road applications E34, E39 on order. We also want to work on the E31/E32 All other models we will adress as enquires come along. If you have any questions or requirements please fell free to ask/pm etc We offer complete installation, corner weighting alignments etc as well. First image is showing E36 street coilover against Motorsport shorter stroke option. Shorter shock housing and spring lenght Image two, Race version E30 converting rear suspension to complete coilover. Thanks Evan

    New E30!

    Looking good Jono!. Am working on a shorter rear springs for the E30. XYZ seems to think geometry gets messed up on road cars with much more lowering!! Anyone comment on that? Evan
  20. Hi Everyone. Just like to introduce myself and my company Speedfactor Ltd. Some of you Im sure I have had contact with already. I would like to introduce you all to XYZ Racing which we are the NZ distributor of. XYZ's line of road performance and race coilovers and big brake kits have been available from us for nearly two years now. We would have to say after running many different brands over the last 10 years, that the quality of components and ride quality from the coilovers has impressed us and my customers. We've tested them pretty aggresively in motorsport with some very good results and are currently in some front running race cars. We have a good range of BMW kits for both coilover and brake in stock, with a comprehensive listing of models available at www.xyz-racing.com. We would like to offer a better price for BMW owners to promote XYZ so if there is any requiremnts for coilovers or any questions relating to suspension, i'd be glad to help. Thanks Evan Pittman Speedfactor Motorsport & Perfomance
