I'll say it again,

Really need the skirts

The sides look too smooth and skinny without them,
The look of the Aero bumper is "chunky" hence the matching aero skirts complete the look,

I was by ACM today and didn't see your car?

Must have been inside when I went past

I agree.
The ridge line on the sides are also a continuation of the front lip edge.
They go hand in hand.

They also work very well with the M bumpers and looks like it was supposed to come that way,

I love mine, They look awesome and errrr "chunky" lol
Esp when the tops down on a Roady, they really suit it,

I do think they follow the lines of the coupe a little better than the roadster,
But they still look hot on either body

That's where we differ.
Love 'em on the Roady, not so much on the Coupe (unless it has Aero front)

Jamie, car was at ACM on Saturday... so how much did you pay for skirts after paint and s/h from Tischer?

I agree, I thought the Aero bumper and skirts looked better on the roadie, but not convinced for the coupe.

Oh yea, here's a daytime pic of her sitting outside ACM after an oil change and diff fluid swap.
Man, I really like what you're doing with your car. It looks awesome
Very clean. Looking forward to more photos.

Found these for you to gaze at,

Still trying to find a TiAg coupe with aero kit,





those skirts really go with the front bumper

The rear bumper, ehhh not so much, But you have that nice carbon diffuser (which I remember helping out on lol) and that would look better than the Aero rear

Make sure you tell Ev I sent you and yup install is easy, I think it took all of 45 mins for me to swap them

The cars going down to Florida, I'm staying up here for now,
Nothing set in stone yet but thats the plan,

I took a rock to a fog light and its all cracked...where did you get the PIAA replacements if I may ask? Bumper looks outstanding. Have been looking at the Hamann to match the side sills, but its way too pricey...this is darn near as nice!

Thanks man!

If your housing cracked, you'll need to replace the whole unit... I think each one is around $105 but I recall seeing a seller on eBay selling both left and right units for around $85. They're made by Hella which is who I believe BMW outsources their hardware to so it'll be good as OEM if not the same.

I got my PIAA's off eBay for around $55. They're not cheap and I would've normally shopped around for better deals but I had some eBay credit, and the seller had perfect feedback.

Probably not, if I did skirts I'd stick with the OEM ones but like I still think they're better left for the roadster.

Thanks! Yeah, I prefer PIAA over the OEM to be honest. Just have some experience w them and think they make a better product. I already did the Hamann skirts cuz mine were chewed to pcs by the previous owner. I am really digging the aero bumper tho the more I look at it.

What made you go with the Aero bumper over an M bumper?
Are the costs that diffrent? Looks, you like the Aero better?

1. Didn't want to lose my fog lights
2. Aero is less common in general while still just as aggressive
3. It's not a M car

On the last point, don't get me wrong, I like M parts and have the steering wheel, knob etc but those are all inside. But I didn't want to put the M bumper on and thus give the appearance I was driving a M.

OP - That looks great ! I have been looking for pictures of an aero kit on a z4 coupe for weeks. I am about to purchase a coupe soon and really want to put the aero kit as my previous roadster had it and it looked great.

I don't mean to threadjack but could someone please photoshop that last picture of your car in phoenix yellow ?
This really will be a desicion maker for me, please help me bring another Z here

Thanks in advance.
