Hey there (this is my first thread so bear with me if this looks like a child wrote it!!!),

I'm in the process of restoring a RHD Alpina B9 3.5 :M5launch: and would appreciate some help with regards to parts and advice.

The car is just about to come out of the body shop and I will need to get it serviced. The only thing is I dont know what specs of engine oil, diff oil and brake fluid I should use as I want to supply the garage with the correct stuff rather than let them use any old chip pan oil they have lying around the garage!!

The second query is can anyone suggest a sensible brake upgrade? The discs warp before lunchtime on a trackday :M5rev: so something a bit stronger may be on the cards.

Thanks
