BMW Z8 Problems

Distortion of front shock towers caused by hitting a pothole on BMW Z8

Problem Description and Possible Solution

If the vehicle hits a pothole, distortion to the front shock towers can occur. The problem may be attributed to the run-flat tires. BMW has released a performance package upgrade for the front suspension, which includes a steel strut brace, steel strut mounts, and steel reinforcement plates for the top of the strut towers. This will help prevent damage to the frame.
