BMW comes with very good news for all its fans in the North American area: Motorsport parts will be made available to weekend racers and professional racing teams in the US without the need of ordering them from Europe.

BMW has released the full catalogs of Motorsports parts to four BMW centers in the U.S. in addition to the already existing copies on their website. The four dealers lucky enough to contain these motorsport holy books are: Laurel BMW in Westmont, IL, Global Imports in Atlanta, GA, BMW of Stratham in Stratham, NH, and BMW of Cleveland in Solon, OH. Motorsport parts are available for the 2008 BMW Z4, the BMW M3 from 1995-present, and the 3 Series Sedan from 2006 onward and should only be used for "approved motorsport/racing/off-road BMW vehicles" so don’t plan on ordering parts for your daily commuter and getting away with it. What should be done is acquiring a weekend toy to fulfill the urge to put the pedal to the metal in BMW racing style.

Press release after the jump.

That’s a good news! Great thing they’ve already offered the genuine BMW sports parts. Let’s not hope that it’s price is double as the after market parts.

I wonder why BMW is so restrictive with these parts & their distribution maybe there just some reason to considered. Perhaps I think they’re worried about the people making copies.
