Yes. The Z4 is lowered.
Adaptive suspension with AC-Schnitzer lowering springs (= Eibach).

Yes, my winter wheels are also 19" - these are the BMW M3 CSL wheels in 8,5 and 9,5J 19" with 235/35 and 265/30 winter tires.

Sorry mate, no time at the moment.
I have so many requests that it would be probably break-even, but I really don't know when I shall do the design of the side markers.

Regarding the exhaust tips I am searching for used pairs - otherwise it would be too expensive if I'd sell them as new parts for 400 and you'd pay extra 200 for the customization/ adjustment.
At the moment I could sell you the basis pair as used ones for 200 w/o customization, which is still too expensive in my opinion.

Sorry, guys - no time for the moment to develop a small lot of the turn signals. Perhaps in spring?

But before you are throwing too much money against your screens, I'll give you a small hint regarding the exhaust tips: it seems to be no good time to get good used ones here in Germany. But perhaps you guys have better luck?

The basis parts are coming from the Audi Q7 4.2 (pre LCI).
There are different types available - you have to search for the exhaust parts, where the tips are welded together with the inner pipes. Outer diameter of the tips is 100 mm.

You have to grind, to cut and re-weld the inner pipes with the outer tips to the desired dimensions.

Below two Pictures:

Grinded and first cuts:


Cut to lenghts before re-welding and installing to the car:


Good luck!

If you have further questions, please write me a pn.

For those who are still interested in my exhaust tips. I've found another pair. PM me for details.

nuebes: CSLs are very nice but I didn't expect the 269s to look this beautiful on an e89. I didn't know there are 269s that fit Z4 measurements/offsets.

Thank you very much.
The 269 fit - but you need spacers and you have to mix types...

New steering wheel installed.
Because of the reason that I don't like the M-steering wheel, I made a bolster up of the normal steering wheel.
+8 mm diameter with perforated leather at the sides and plane leather top/downside. The seams are in the car leather colour, now.
First I thought it would be too thick, but now, after the installation, I love it:



The steering wheel heater isn't that hot anymore, but still ok - especially at the sideparts, where perforated leather is installed.

Next steps:
Inner roll bar covers with leather

I am still searching for an enhancement of the rear-bumper. I really love the normal bumper, but it looks a bit to brave for me - so anything like a decent diffusor would be great like a 3d-diffusor with only 2x1 exhaust tip cut outs...
Any ideas?

Hey guys. Unfortunately no news regarding the side indicators till now.

At the moment I have other priorities than the development of car parts.

BUT! To check the demand of the development:
What do you think about the following development?

I was pissed off regarding the solutions of BMW regarding the LCI-headlight-design and it's light-power. If you compare the LED-brightness to other BMW models like e.g. X5 or e92 LCI, you will see the difference. The LCI-Style of the Fx-type-models is not as good compared to to the LCI-models of the "e"-series.
Because of this, we started to develop the perfect LCI-style for the Z4 w/o spending 2.000 for new headlights +x for the implementation.

These are our first results:

Only 1/2 of power compared to desired solution (only for one part of the ring):



Pre-series solution with 1/2 power (only for one part of the ring):

Can I ask if you had any rubbing with the stock 19 inch rims and 24mm spacers (12mm per side) on the rear and 265 width tyres?

Yes, a bit. But you can remove or deform a bit of the inner housing, so that the wheels will fit.

That JL spoiler looks really good. Thinking of ordering one myself. Does it obstruct the third brake light at all?
