Lightbulb Geneva 2013: BMW Z4 LCI in Valencia Orange and Hyper Orange Package

BIMMERPOST NEWS
Geneva 2013: BMW Z4 LCI in Valencia Orange and Hyper Orange Package
46
COMMENTS

We're coming to you live from the 2013 Geneva Motor Show where we'll be covering all things BMW related for you.

First up is the BMW Z4 LCI (facelift/update), in Valencia Orange Metallic and showing its lightly refreshed headlights and side gills.

The LCI update brings with it 3 new colors for the Z4 - Mineral Grey metallic, Glacier Silver metallic, and the Valencia Orange metallic color seen here. Valencia Orange paint can only be ordered together with a new package which also debuted with the LCI update - Hyper Orange package (also featured in the photos).

This new aesthetic/design package gives the Z4 a black and orange contrasting interior. The bespoke Alcantara door panel trim, like the lower section of the instrument panel, comes in orange. The black leather seats have contrast stitching in Valencia Orange and an accent stripe running down the central section of the backrests and seat cushions. This stripe is likewise orange and is flanked by two thin white lines. The door panel trim and lower section of the instrument panel can also be specified in black as an option. Another exclusive element of the Hyper Orange package is the metal weave trim strip, which can be combined with further decorative elements in high-gloss black for the door openers and the gearshift or selector lever. This new Design package replaces the previously available Citrus Yellow Package and is also available in combination with other exterior paint colors as an option.

For more details on the Z4 LCI, see our official Z4 LCI thread.

The Z4 LCI launches this Spring.

Is it so hard to make calipers that look good and fit on a premium car?

The car looks good but the small things ruins the big picture.

Interior design is reminiscent of a retro leather motorcycle jacket. Pretty cool concept since driving a roadster is the closest you can get to riding a bike.

Very nice. Love the color, rear diffuser and interior stitching. I have been going back and forth on wrapping my roof in gloss black. I am now sold. My next new project after getting her tinted up.

Pretty disappointed in almost everything to do with the LCI.most of the changes look like an overzealous mod job. The only thing I wish I had were the LEDs on the headlamps. In particular the gloss plastic around the ac vents seem like a strange step backward in elegance. The roof color option is also rather inelegant.

I do like the orange paint tho.

They'll likely bring them out as I sell mine. Or, they'll not bother at all and concentrate on the Z2!

I ordered the exact same car from Circle BMW in Eatontown NJ - contact Danny W. for a great price or if you want a used BMW Z-4 with 28,000 miles, Manual, all options - reasonable - speak to Danny too - Orion silver, Red extended leather interior

Undeniably true. It's really a sore spot on this car.

That chromed plastic swoosh thing on the side is absurd. It is the opposite of classy.
