BMW Z8 Accessories & Parts

Meet one of BMW's roadsters – the BMW Z8 known under the E52 model code. The Z8 is the production variant of the 1997 Z07 concept car. The Z8's production period was run by BMW Individual and covered 1997-2003. The 2-seat sports car was first introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1999 and expressed the restrained elegance of the famous 507 roadster. The Z8 was decided to come out in the limited volume, therefore, the number of the Z8s counts 5,703 vehicles with half of them exported to the USA. Due to the limited edition, the Z8 was constructed and finished by hand, so the price was corresponding. The Z8's measurements come to this: 98.6-inch wheelbase, 173.2-inch length, 72-inch width, and 51.9-inch height. The Z8 has a 4.9-liter 32-valve V8 engine under the hood that develops 400 horsepower and 370 pound-feet of torque. The roadster is fit out with a standard 6-speed manual transmission. The production of the Z8 was finished in November 2002, so the 2003 model was replaced by the Alpina V8 Roadster, nonetheless, only 555 Alpinas were built and 450 of those being allocated to the US market.

Thanks to BMW's DSC system (Dynamic Stability Control), the Z8 is easy to drive for a professional driver as well as for those not professionally trained. The vehicle includes anti-lock brakes, traction control, and cornering stabilization in order to prevent drifting and swaying. The Z8 super-solid chassis parts and components were borrowed from the BMW 5- and 7-series sedans and recalibrated, so the ride is neither supple nor harsh. The rear stoppers are unique parts for the Z8. Neon exterior lighting was the Z8's innovation, too. The tail lights and turn indicators come with neon tubes, so they are virtually everlasting. The Z8 has the typical double kidney grille and uniquely shaped front-fender vents. The design of the Z8 alloy wheels hewed to the concept. Each of more than 5,000 Z8 features a metal hardtop color-matched with the rear defroster. The Z8 power-operated up and down hardtop was designed right to complement the lines of the roadster.

The Z8 interior was made reasonably convenient by means of multifunctional control (e. g., the power windows and mirrors controlled by a single instrument). The gauges are mounted and angled slightly toward the driver to open the view of the Z8 long hood and the road ahead. The dashboard is a painted plastic panel offered in one of three colors: black, blue, or taupe. The electronic knobs of the sound system, telephone, and navigation system are hidden under the retracting panel. The power telescoping steering wheel has three spokes, each containing four thin metal rods. All of the metal accessories and parts, like buttons, switches, the shifter knob, etc., are fabricated from brushed aluminum. The rest of the trim is polished chrome. Consequently, the Z8 got the vintage modesty of the interior. The seat cover upholstery deserves much attention as it's made of the top-notch leather.

BMW's Z8 gives the sports-luxury label a whole new definition. Elegant yet strong, the Z8 offers a unique brand of performance and control that has to be seen up close to marvel at further. Outstanding design and aerodynamic shaping allows for a one-of-a-kind look that is part sports-car, part cruise-missile. The right taste of luxury is thrown in, with a comfortable and almost exotic interior that further supports the model's mission. An impressive showing all around, it is no wonder why the Z8 is still such a popular vehicle.

  • Tonneau Covers
    Tonneau Cover Cleaners & Protectors Remove the Dirt & Restore the Shine
    At CARiD, we sell a lot of tonneau covers because we're real believers in their benefits, and because we offer a broader selection than our competitors. We also use many different styles and makes of vinyl tonneau covers on our own trucks for demonstration purposes, and we've learned quite a bit about them.
  • Grill Guards
    Bumper Guards | Full-Width Protection in the City and the Country
    You may never go off-roading or drive down wooded trails where large animals are likely to materialize in front of your path, but if you live in city areas or suburbs, you still need to prepare your car or truck for survival in a different type of jungle - the urban jungle.
  • Fender Flares
    No-drill Fender Flares are So Easy to Install!
    Have you ever seen another truck like yours and thought, "It looks the same as mine, but more…rugged"? And after a moment of reflection, the answer finally came to you why. The other vehicle was equipped with fender flares, and yours wasn't. Yes, there's a reason automakers fit fender flares on top-trim versions of their cars and trucks at the factory. It's because they can serve as elegant-looking pieces that make your vehicle look more expensive, or as more robust ones that add well-toned, muscular definition, without great cost or complexity. Because we understand just how much they add to a vehicle, we offer a great selection of fender flares. And regardless of what you opt for, fender flares can be left their original color (usually black), or they can be easily custom painted to blend in or contrast as desired.
  • Dash Kits
    Dash Kit Options: Upgrade Kits, Factory Match Wood
    There's no question that custom dash kits add richness and spice to your vehicle's interior - regardless of whether you choose a finish of wood, brushed metal, carbon fiber, bright solid colors, or even camouflage. The high-quality trim sets we offer are crafted to exacting specifications in order to ensure everything looks right and fits tight the way original equipment does.
  • Side Mirrors
    Interior Mirror Options Bring You into the 21st Century
    It may be hard to imagine, but interior rearview mirrors are subject to a lot of stress. Direct sunlight and extreme interior temperatures take their toll - eventually causing glue and bonding materials to deteriorate from the edges inward. As a result, those edges of the mirror appear to be crinkling up like tinfoil - a distracting and unsightly sight that has the effect of making the rest of your vehicle seem old and tired.
  • Dash Covers
    Rear Deck Covers Complete Your Interior Protection
    If you've got a coupe or sedan, when was the last time you actually looked at your vehicle's interior "rear deck"? This is the horizontal shelf that sits between the rear window and the edge of the rear seat back cushion. This area may also be described as a hat shelf or package tray, and it's usually covered at the factory in carpeting or other material that's closely knit and low in height. This covering is discreet enough to blend into surrounding areas of the interior and, in most cases, no one gives it a thought.
  • Custom Grilles
    Grille Emblems | The Finishing Touch to Your Factory or Custom Grille
    A grille emblem is a source of pride for vehicle manufacturers because it's a final signature on what designers and engineers have spent a lot of time and hard work creating. It's fair to say a grille emblem is similar to an artist's name on a completed painting - because both represent a show of pride about what's been created, and in the creator's own abilities to produce it. And while pieces by any artist will vary, the signature on them is distinctive in its own right because it's the one constant that doesn't change. If an artist or carmaker goes in a new direction, that signature may be the only thing that's recognizable initially - until what's newly created becomes appreciated on its own merits.
  • Tonneau Covers
    Painted Tonneau Covers | Move From Utility To Luxury
    If you're like most pickup truck owners, you carry a lot in the bed of your truck. And if your truck bed floor is bare, you may have noticed the increasing numbers of scratches and dents that have resulted from loading and unloading cargo. Glancing back at your truck isn't as enjoyable any more - because the whole of it no longer shines with the unified look of a single, unadulterated color. Or maybe you've protected your bed with a bedliner and have come to feel its black appearance just doesn't blend with your truck's finish the way you thought it would.
  • Off-Road Bumpers
    Skid Plates Provide The Ultimate In Off-Road Protection
    If you take your 4x4 off-roading, you have likely gained an appreciation of how unforgiving trails can be when it comes to your vehicle's underside. Deep ruts with rough edges can appear out of nowhere, sturdy-looking rocks can shift unexpectedly, and tranquil bodies of water can hide everything from sinkholes to fallen tree trunks. Before you know it, the underside of your truck has bounced off something hard enough to damage moving suspension components or puncture housings containing engine oil, gasoline, transmission fluid, or differential gear oil.
  • Custom Hoods
    What Is The Procedure To Install A Hood Scoop?
    In the custom hoods section of our website, you'll find add-on hood air scoops that create an unmistakable look of power. Since the beginning of hot-rodding, racers have been fitting scoops onto their cars both for looks and function. Over the years, many high-performance muscle cars have even featured them as original equipment on top trim levels. Hood scoop openings can face forward in order to guide cool air into the engine, or the openings can face rearward to take advantage of the high pressure area at the base of the windshield. Whichever way they are positioned, airflow under the hood increases - a factor that improves both induction and heat ventilation to varying degrees.
  • Garage Accessories
    Lift Your Car Easily And Safely With A Quality Floor Jack
    When working as a do-it-yourselfer (DIY), whether you're a beginner or an expert, having the right equipment to get your vehicle off the ground is a starting point for easier car repairs at home. You work on your own vehicle because you enjoy the experience of improving your car or truck with your own hands, and you do it to save money. With that spirit in mind, we've written this article to cover the very items that help you get started - floor jacks which are the right size, quality, and price for your home garage workshop.
  • Seat Covers
    How To Install A Set Of Custom Seat Covers
    The design and construction of seat covers have truly come a long way. Computer-aided design and better production methods have allowed the creation of modern seat covers that are custom-tailored to fit individual makes and models - stretching like a glove over every contour. And thanks to modern materials, today's covers will stay form-fittingly snug over each fold and crease - even under heavy use. Passengers won't notice they are add-ons, and you may forget they're not original equipment yourself. Installation is relatively easy and does not require any tools because seat covers we sell come equipped with all the straps, zippers, and clips you'll need to snugly secure them in place.
  • Generators
    Portable Generators: Superstorm Salvation For The Household
    With storms and weather events that intensify with every passing year, power outages lasting for extended periods of time have become commonplace - a problem that's only going to get worse in the future. When power outages hit, hot water heaters, heating systems, kitchen appliances, basement pumps, security alarms, and other items that use electricity as their lifeblood are rendered useless. You're left literally powerless to control your environment against extreme temperatures, and you have no way to stop flooding and property damage that tend to go hand-in-hand with heavy storms.
  • Garage Accessories
    Lifts & Ramps Safely Bring Your Vehicle Up To Working Height
    The odds are that if you clicked on this article to read it, then you appreciate the idea of working on your own car. Perhaps when you pass by a professional garage or shop, you're a bit envious as you glance in and see service bays filled with lifts and other equipment that make certain repair jobs easier. Professionals use lifts for a good reason - they allow you to perform almost any repair at a more comfortable height so you can see clearly, apply torque easily, reach for tools faster, and have access to areas normally inaccessible with the vehicle on the ground.
  • Custom Hoods
    What Are My Choices For Custom Hood Materials?
    An automobile hood is one of the body panels on your vehicle with the largest surface area, and it's the one panel you'll be looking at every minute you're behind the wheel. Considering this, maybe you find it as odd as we do that many vehicle manufacturers have chosen to make modern hood panels flat and boring, thanks in large part to the search for low wind resistance.
  • Sunroof Visors
    How To Install A Universal Sunroof Visor
    Sunroof deflectors install on your vehicle's roof in front of the leading edge of the sunroof itself. The rounded, upwardly-curving shape they possess redirects air so it flows up and over the sunroof opening instead of into the vehicle. Because of that built-in curve, most deflectors extend over and effectively cover approximately three to six inches of the sunroof opening at the front - blocking sun glare that would normally beam directly into your eyes.
  • Wind Deflectors
    Rain Guards: In-Channel vs. Stick-On
    Rain Guards, also known as wind deflectors, window deflectors, or window visors, are an underrated automotive accessory - simply because it's difficult to know just how effective they are until you experience them. However, once fitted on your car or truck, it's hard to imagine how you got along without them. Deflectors improve your vehicle's aerodynamics when the windows are down, reducing annoying wind noise. Deflectors also allow you to drive in the rain with windows cracked for ventilation without getting wet. And when blistering hot summer days roll around, windows can be left cracked in a parking lot without being noticeable to potential thieves.
  • Bug Deflectors
    The Age Old Debate: Do Bug Deflectors Work?
    The effectiveness of bug deflectors has been a point of contention between believers and non-believers for a long time. Some insist they work wonders, while others swear to the contrary. Because lots of testimonials supporting both points of view float around the internet and through word of mouth, deciding what to believe can be difficult. Before doing that, it's important to understand the thinking behind bug deflector designs.
  • Sunroof Visors
    Sunroof Visors Let You Enjoy Fresh Air No Matter The Weather
    According to recent statistics, over half of new vehicles sold in the United States are equipped with a factory "sunroof", "moonroof", "panorama roof", or similarly-named panel which allows part of a vehicle's roof to slide open. It wouldn't be a stretch to say almost 9 million cars and trucks leave factories so equipped each year. And the reason for their popularity is simple - sunroofs are great! They make it possible to enjoy fresh air, warm sun, and cool breezes right by our heads while driving our four-door sedans, SUVs, and minivans. We get a taste of the convertible life without giving up 98% of the practicality we need every day. At the dealership, most buyers see a sunroof option on the checklist and immediately envision blissfully taking in all the joys of Mother Nature while driving their future car. Mentally, the forecast is sunshine with no rain - a powerful enough thought to make the extra cost of a sunroof seem well worthwhile.
  • Wind Deflectors
    How To Install Rain Guards | In-Channel And Stick-On
    Rain Guards, also known as wind deflectors, window deflectors, or window visors, improve your vehicle's aerodynamics when the windows are down, reduce annoying wind noise, shield you from rain spray, and allow windows to be left cracked in a parking lot without giving notice to potential thieves. Going forward, we'll refer to them as "deflectors" in this article.
  • Roof Racks
    Rooftop Carriers Can Carry All Your Water Sports Equipment
    So you've got a kayak, canoe, surfboard, or stand up paddleboard you can't wait to use. Before you can do that, however, you've got to find a practical way to get your toy to a lake or ocean - safely, and without damage. While these watersport items embody grace and fluidity in the waves, the truth is they're extremely cumbersome to transport on land. If you find yourself scratching your head trying to figure out the best solution, we've created this article to cover the many rooftop carriers for these items that we offer.
  • Wind Deflectors
    Rear Window Deflectors | Made To Shade Your Truck’s Back Glass
    Have you ever driven your pickup truck and found that the sun glare coming from the rear window is a real nuisance? It's difficult to block the sunlight from streaming through that location, especially given that your vehicle manufacturer was not thoughtful enough to provide fold-down visors for the rear window area. You could fashion and install some kind of curtain, but that would only create a greater nuisance by blocking rear vision.
  • Wind Deflectors
    Do Rain Guards Really Work?
    If the air conditioning system in your car no longer blows cold air because performing costly repairs isn't feasible, you've probably become familiar with the cooling off method some describe as "460 Air Conditioning" - signifying 4 windows down at 60 miles per hour. You play around with just how much to open each window in order to create a balance that maximizes crosswind and minimizes unpleasant, ear-popping buffeting inside the cabin. But no matter how hard you try, you and your hair still end up disheveled. Hopefully you're not going to a place where that matters.
  • Roof Racks
    Rooftop Storage Solutions | Cargo Boxes, Bags, Baskets
    Maybe you've got an SUV with three rows of seats. They're great fun when 6 or 8 people are along for a road trip, but most such modern vehicles utilize every inch of interior space in order to fit that third row. Consequentially, there's virtually zero room for cargo when seats are in the upright position. Or maybe you have a similar problem with a compact hatchback, or even a minivan. Your vehicle may have fold-flat seats that make carrying cargo easy, but what good are they when you need to bring passengers with you? You can't ask adults to squeeze in between duffel bags or sporting gear, and you can't ask them to hang on tight and surf on the roof either.
  • Roof Racks
    Rooftop Carriers Can Carry All Your Winter Sports Equipment
    Skiing and snowboarding are not inexpensive hobbies. After purchasing skis, poles, shoes, clothes, lift passes, and even lodging accommodations, you've shelled out enough money that it becomes tempting to skip spending more on a rooftop carrier. But if you've ever jammed all your snow gear inside your car, you know how chaotic, slushy, and awkward that can be - especially if you're trying to make room for friends and luggage. That's why we offer cleverly-designed rooftop carriers that won't break your bank in the Ski & Snowboard Racks section of our website.
  • Spoilers
    How Easy Is It To Install a Spoiler Myself?
    Rear spoilers are one of the flashiest yet cost-effective exterior additions you can make to your ride. The right spoiler will transform a plain-Jane family car into a sports sedan, and upgrade a sporty car into a one-of-a-kind race machine.
  • Spoilers
    Will Adding a Spoiler Make My Car More Aerodynamic?
    A simple way to answer this question would be with a "yes". However, the science of properly managing airflow to create beneficial automotive aerodynamics is, quite literally, more complicated than meets the eye. The word "aerodynamics" brings to mind visions of a vehicle in a wind tunnel with a smoke wand illustrating how smoothly air flows over it. But true automobile aerodynamics involves a detailed study of how the motion of air interacts with all areas of an automobile. One term that gets the most attention is "coefficient of drag" (Cd), which is an overall measurement of a shape's resistance to airflow.

    Why Should I Order My Spoiler Already Painted?
    When you've finally decided on the right rear spoiler or wing for your vehicle, it can't arrive quickly enough. Then, you want it to be ready for installation as soon as possible so you can begin enjoying the benefits of it. Because we understand this, we offer the option of ordering spoilers pre-painted by our manufacturers before shipping. Based on customer feedback and experiences relayed to us, we strongly recommend you consider choosing this option, for these very good reasons:
  • Spoilers
    What Kind of Spoiler is Right for You?
    The function of a rear spoiler is to control the flow of air streaming over a vehicle and properly manage it when it reaches the rear where turbulence is most likely to form. A correctly designed spoiler will counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and it will enhance rear grip by keeping a vehicle's rear end planted firmly against the road - without causing excess drag.
  • Body Kits
    Lightweight Body Panels | Cut Pounds, Go Faster, Save Fuel
    If you're an automotive enthusiast who has visited our performance sections, it's likely that you know that reducing overall vehicle weight is an effective way to enhance your vehicle's performance, handling, and fuel economy. Naturally, there are different schools of thought on the subject of vehicle weight reduction.
