5 years and 5 months of ownership and the changes along the way.

Hi all,

I have owned my Z4 for 5 and a half years now and over that time I have made various changes. Here are a few pics of how the Zed looked when I got it and the changes I have made along the way.

Mods over the years:

Changed from Black to red leather
Removal on the M badges :)
Private plate
Upgrade to 108s
lower on H&Rs
Change to matt black grills
Upgrade to Polly bushes
Add a gear knob made my MM
Change the dash trim to piano black
Change the dash trim to 5d carbon wrap
upgrade to a M gear knob
Have the dash trim wrapped with leather
Fitted KW ST XTA coilovers
Upgraded to 19" CSLs
Fitted a multi function steering wheel
Change back to piano black trim
installed a dashcam
10mm spacers on the front


My bargain mods would be the piano black trim and multi function steering wheel, £60 for both :) :)


Few pics of the different stages.

Today it is currently piano black trim inside and anthracite CSLs outside

Car looks so much better now OP. :thumbsup:

I love CSLs on a Z4 and am a sucker for red leather!

I'm just undecided about the dash though - much as I like Piano Black I also like the look of the leather one you had :scratchhead:
Z4 3.0Si Sport - Coupe for added stiffness!
Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey & 108Ms. Cruise, Storage and pdc. 325ti Sport as a DD.
Gone - Ruby Black, Pearl Grey & 135Ms. Xenons, heated seats and Professional speakers.
