2014 Glacier Silver 28i MSport

Bought the Z4 last year to replace my E92 328i. This is my 3rd BMW and like before went through Irv Robinson at Motor Werks of Barrington. If you are thinking of doing a European Delivery, he is the man to talk to (if you're not thinking about ED, you should be). Picked up the car at the Welt in Munich in April and put about 3,000 miles on her driving through 9 countries in 7 days. I was lucky enough to get one of the first 2014's built in March. After a excruciating long wait, I was finally reunited with her at the BMW Performance Center in Spartenburg, SC in July.

Not long after getting the car back the modding began. The stubby antenna and black grills went on the day after I got the car back home, and I'm finally at the point where I'd like to think its just about finished.

More photos, please. Great, great job, wmandra. I like everything about it. The F30 BMW Performance decal on the rocker panels looks great. Might have to consider that for my Z4 someday.

Also, would highly recommend some painted reflectors from iND. Would really finish it up. If you get your hands on a 35is rear caliper, you could have iND do that in the same gold as the BMW Performance brake to balance out the front and rear.

Shift light was very easy. Just grab the tach wire at the OBDII port and power from the fuse box under the passenger side dash.

Might be my favorite Z. Looks so freaking amazing. Looks like a serious track car. I really love what you've done.

Any plans to do an LSD?

I've considered an LSD, but haven't seen the need for the expense on the track yet. Believe it or not, the EDL system in the E89 works quite well and is very predictable.

What black wheels are those, did you repaint the VMR v810? The car looks stunning.

How does the jb4 together with the exhaust upgrade feel compared to stock? did you dyno the the car already? is there a big improvement over stock power?
does jb4 recognize that there is an exhaust system installed?
nice upgrades!
