Cool My Z4 went through a minor surgery

After a few days, I can't wait to have a minor surgery to lower her height.

Cool sports car!

How much did it lower her and how does she ride?

30mm front and 20 mm rear
The ride on highway is very good, but on bumpy road you can feel it.
I took a long ride from Phuket to Bangkok (900 Km) on stock springs and return with KW springs. I think the overall is about the same on comfort level, but at high speed it is better handling

From my personal opinion, KW springs is more comfort than HR springs that put on my other E90

Just added: BMW performance brake

This kit is from E90 performance system. It fits perfectly without any mod. Only the brake pad sensor can't fit, need to use the old one.

Since there is no option for rear brake yet.
I put caliper cover on rear, painted in the same color
What do you guys think?

Why did you remove the 23i badge? But not the sDrive badge?

So people maybe think you have a 30i or 35i?

Looks way better that little bit lower but as much as I want the BMW performance brake upgrade i'd rather have the discs the same all round so I will wait.

Those calipers really fill out the wheel. Would look great behind my 19's.

FYI
US spec for Z4 35i '09: front rotor is 330mm , I don't know about the 2010 spec
But European spec for this is 348mm with a bigger caliper (why different)
This BMW performance brake is 338 mm
