Thanks for looking.

Choosing which color to go for was the hardest part!

Carbon Black is a special order color and it was a close toss up between Sapphire Black and Carbon Black.

But Carbon Black had the something extra. I like the way it changes color in the different lighting conditions. Under bright sunlight you see more blue in the mix and at other times it looks more black.

Carbon black isn't available for the NA market. This thread will be pretty sparsly populated.

Nice. CB is a great color. My other car is Carbon Black and I love it, except trying to keep it clean. Don't forget about the color change to dark purple on the contours in certain light.

Hi there! Yeah, Melb BMW were the ones I went with. It's nice to see a fellow Aussie on these Zpost once in a while. Congrats on your machine too.

NEW pictures posted

Been busy over the last few weeks and have taken new pictures of my Z4-MC.
  • Original wheels have now been acid dipped and hand polished inside and out to a mirror finish. Was sick to death of stone chips and wanted to keep the original wheels. If the job is done well the polished alloy look is way cool and sets off a black car even more. It took one professional alloy polisher 3 weeks to do them but well worth the wait.

  • Tyres changed to grooved slicks - Dunlop Motorsport DZ02G. After using a race tyre for general weekend use, I'd never drive on a standard street tyre again.

  • ANILE8 custom number plates transferred onto Z4-MC


Please visit the below link in my sig for the full gallery of images.
