Z4 35i

Hey guys, just wanted to share pictures with you all. I come to this forum every single day but just never posted anything...so here it is.

This is where we started :






Then got some 20" TSW wheels put on and did a custom quad tip exhaust:







These are the most recent changes that have been made to the car. Lowered on H&R springs, front and rear sway bars and a matte metallic blue wrap.























I never had any problems with rubbing after it was lowered until i drove from Atlanta to New Orleans and I was rubbing every time I hit those aggressive dips. So I put the stock wheels back on there .



Thanks for looking.

Yeah....I was quite bummed about it but I actually don't mind the factory wheels back on there. Better ride and handles better.

They're pretty close at a distance bit I guess with better quality shots or looking at it in person the difference is much more visible.

I really wanted the M bumpers. Actually ordered them but they were on back order and didn't work with the time frame I had so I couldn't wait for them.

I thought the same thing until I watched the guy wrap my car. It's actually much harder than I thought it was. The hood gave him the most headache though... because of how big it is and the way the film comes. He had to do quite a bit of stretching there but he managed to knock it out. It took him about a week.

Pretty cool. Numbers from the front licence plate looks a bit weird from a German perspective.

Love the wrap with the black accents, but think it looks much better with the stock (silver wheels) as in this shot:



Just not a fan of black wheels except in very rare cases. If it were my car, I would (1) grab M Sport bumpers front and rear, (2) grab a set of OEM 326-style wheels, and (3) body match the reflectors. Keep everything else the same. It would be

Yep, it's actually my wife's daily driver but I've taken it in the mountains a couple of times.
