     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Every so often, as we trek through life, we really score big. Perhaps not in the traditional sense of a bank heist or lottery win, but in an area that truly matters to us. Looking back, we wonder how we came to be so fortunate. While sometimes owning a car can be mundane or even frustrating, occasionally there is such a highlight that everything else pales in comparison.

By way of illustration, have a look at this rare and beautiful Acatama Yellow BMW Z4. Besides that retina-scorching paint, and the obvious modifications present, the full BMW Individual Piano Black interior really ices the cake like a boss. This combination is not exactly commonplace, so when our client came across this one-owner car for sale, he knew his time had come, and he immediately closed the deal.

Many owners of such a unique ride would then immediately sequester it from any possible harm, and insist on leaving everything stock, possibly with resale value in mind. And then, of course, there are those that simply want to enjoy their car, no matter its relative rarity in the automotive world. To people like that, we tip our hat. Machines like this are meant to be enjoyed, not kept in a bubble. After all, why are we car enthusiasts?

Before long, the mod list had grown to significant proportions, and the end result is what you see before you. Very few aspects of this platform were left untouched, and we were thrilled and honored to see this dream become a reality. From the perfect stance, to the intricate exterior and interior details, this has to be one of the most complete Z89s we’ve ever laid eyes on.

The first thing that stands out is the venerable Volk Racing TE37 wheels in Formula Silver, wrapped in Falken 454 tires and sitting in front of a BMW M Performance Brembo Big Brake Kit, ensuring rapid deceleration when deployed. A set of 12mm spacers all around help push the wheels flush, and H&R springs provide that streetable ride height. A myriad of OEM BMW parts help round out the exterior, including the M-Sport front and rear bumpers, front black grilles, and shorty antenna.

Adding the the significant road presence is another premium part from Japan, the 3D Design carbon fiber front spoiler, which matches the Tekarbon carbon fiber mirror covers. Adding some heft to the underwhelming factory exhaust note is an Eisenmann full downpipe-back exhaust, and combined with the AFE cold air intake, Evolution Racewerks intercooler and Cobb Tuning ECU reflash, it unleashes some serious power to accompany the noise.

Inside, more BMW parts were installed, including the M-Sport door sills, steering wheel, and aluminum foot rest to go with the AC Schnitzer aluminum pedals. When combined with the BMW M Circuit Leather/Alcantara black sport seats and suede dash with yellow stitching, the effect is visually profound. Even the roll bar features a carbon fiber cover from Tekarbon.

There may be more race-derived versions of the E89 Z4, but this example retains what we consider to be the ideal balance of everyday usability and track capabilities, with very tasteful Japanese styling and a healthy dose of OEM+ parts from BMW. Under the rising Florida sun, this gorgeous Z4 roams the streets in a full yellow jacket, catching envious stares and wistful glances alike. Blink, and it vanishes around the corner, leaving behind only inspiration.

Enjoy the photos!

M door sills don't fit and the stickers need to go. Just my opinion. Otherwise very unique.

Literally, this model is one of the best looking BMW ever.
I really love the wheels except the red central cap and the stickers on them.
Colour is unique and beautiful.
I hope the owner will fully enjoy it. It is simply beautiful.

PS
Sean, loved your introduction.

Will you guys mind saying how much was the "damage" ($) ?
