Since the car is black and its harder to see the intakes, I wanted the 35is inserts. Personally I think that was a good decision

Have some bad quality phone pics of the car for now, more will come. The Z is also lowered on H&R springs at the last two pics

Before and after pictures of the bumpers:
Thanks alot for the pictures. I agree, it is less boring and loosk more wide, open and curvy. I still think "boring" is sometimes better, but in your case it is an excellent upgrade! Dare I say the complete package is now more attractive than the Italian? Nah no, I will just keep that to myself...

Little known facts about BMW: 1) The N54 is still in production and used in the current Z4 35i and 35is. 2) In a Z4 you can get sport+ steering combined with normal suspension etc by selecting DSC=off. (Update: DSC=off also offers sports steering in the M135i) 3) All Z4s with 19" wheels are still only offered with the worst performing OEM tires ever sold with a DCT equipped BMW (Potenza RE 050 RFT).
