Those exhaust tips have to be the best ones I've seen for the Z4 - you have good taste! What other upgrades are you planning for the vehicle?

Great looking car by the way!

And how much is the Hartge rear lip spoiler? I have been looking all over for it...

Hey Roman,

Nice project you guys have. Very clean.

As far as turbo upgrade - I would be your first customer for that one, the only limiting factor is my DCT, however I can see you also have this tranny on z4. Do you think it will handle the power of upgraded turbos? From what i know from getrag website, it can handle max 440 torque. And it does not specify crank or wheel though...

Can you please tell me when your planning to start selling the downpipes and intercooler as i'm wanting to place an order.

My 35i is already mapped by Evolve automotive in the Uk, will i need a remap once i fit DP's and FMIC?

Really like the look but 2.2k for side skirts or 1.8k for the front lip? That's a lot of money for a bit of carbon fiber. I don't mind spending money but don't think it is worth the price.

This is way too expensive in my opinion when you compare this with CF lips for other models.

This is an old thread and I'm not sure Roman is posting much about their Z4 project car anymore, gents. (I believe they may have even sold it, but don't hold me to that.)

The good news is that the spirit of their project car lives on in mine:






Still trying to decide what, if anything, to do with the suspension. I would like a mild drop, but don't want to spoil the comfortable ride as this is my old lady's DD.

Otherwise, next up will be an exhaust (probably SuperSprint), ER intercooler, and a tune (probably ESS).

Cosmetically, probably a de-badge and a spoiler (Hartage?).

Looks really nice!

Regarding suspension: The Eibach springs are the best choice regarding comfort and performance. In combination with the H&R stabilizer they are perfect. But they won't lower your car a lot. At the front approx 25mm (with M-suspension -15 mm) and at the rear -15 mm (with M-suspension -5mm).
If you want to go lower, take the H&R springs - they are unfortunately not so good regarding comfort and performance, but they are lower. Unfortunately the lower the rear more than the front.

Which rims do you have? These are replica's and no real BMW CSL-wheels, aren't they?
