What did you do with or to your Z4 today?

Painted steering wheel trim. Sooo happy with how it looks and feels.

Me driving it...


Jokes aside, I added those three colors bars for the M cars to my front grill to augment the M40i on the back.

Replaced mesh wind deflector with glass deflector. Much improved visibility and better looks!

I don't know how special this is but I've never seen a z4 on the streets with a gloss black z4 badge. I really like it!

Nice! Did you buy black mirror caps or did you just paint them / have them painted?

My Z4 M40I is unique because there's only two in my city and the other one is a black 30i model. This car turns so many heads when I drive it, like I was driving an expensive exotic car. Other BMW drivers get excited when they see it. I call it the Z4 StormTrooper edition because it's white with black accents.

It reminds me a bit of the 2007 FJ Trail Team I had years ago which was also white with black trim.

TY! Realized, in time, Cerium parts are much pricier so store ordered the cheaper primed caps and collision center painted body color.

They seem to be fairly rare everywhere. Especially the M40i which make me happy. A friend called mine the Ant.

Led details? It was a pain in the ass! First finding power was difficult. Had to tap into driving lights. Running wires also difficult. Car is sealed all over.I wouldn't do it again. Bought the car in winter and had the time in my garage.
