AC Schnitzer SA
Hi All

Been looking at possibly adding the ACS spoiler and 18" wheels to my Z4 M Coupe, but when I've tried to contact ACS here in Joburg my mail hasn't been answered and the phone number didn't get picked up. Has anyone here dealt with them before? Are prices completely insane that no one can afford?

So want that rear wing!

Did you try JSN Motors in Bryanston? They have AC Schnitzer

Ya the contact details were meant to be for them. Maybe a trip on Saturday is required...

Found JSN to be as useful as a pen without ink. I needed replacement valves for my ACS Type 3's and they couldn't source it. Try Rossiters in the UK, I order from them...

Wish but the exchange to the pound right now must make that an expensive exercise... I'm seeing why you say that about them.

The parts are imported anyway, so surprisingly there is not that big a difference in price.

RE: AC Schnitzer SA
Ok awesome will give them a shout. Do you have a particular person you deal with or is their general sales contact just as good?

Hey bud, Shaun du Plessis is the ACS contact at JSN. You can reach him via their reception or mail him, Shaun@JSN.co.za

Be prepared the prices will bring a tear to your eye, to give you an indication the rear spoiler on my GT is R14 500.00.

Have a chat with Shaun, he is quite helpful...CoolShake

Try these guys.
UK based mstyle.co.uk

The part you're looking for is £708.... But they have other options too.

RE: AC Schnitzer SA
I have always had great experiences with JSN. Shaun is a great guy and helpful too.

Try the main line and ask for him specifically. He will assist.

Maronor on the Forum is also an ACS agent, maybe try him also

RE: AC Schnitzer SA
Thanks for all the input guys! Will probably try contact them all just to be safe... I'm sure it'll be an expensive exercise but might be worth it in the long run!

RE: AC Schnitzer SA
AC Schnitzer make great performance mods - save yourself some bucks and import them directly from Schnitzer in the UK or Germany. Local prices from the agent is just ridiculous - irrespective of exchange rate!!!

Did you ever come right with your search here mate?

Interested in some similar mods- have just emailed Hamann too, to see what they say about shipping to RSA..

RE: AC Schnitzer SA
No, in the end I decided the prices everyone was asking was crazy. Although at the time the exchange rate was also ludicrous so that didn't help. I did give up with ACS SA though, they never got back to me.
