There is so much to like here....but must agree the vehicle would look best badge-less.

Decals mounted on the calipers and airscoop:









Oh... and by "popular demand" M-badge now removed:

Great looking machine!! Totally two thumbs up!!!

Besides, I particularly love a nice Z with 108s.

Keep us posted as the mods progress!

Smile Response - new ass

"""HAHA I run 325i emblem on my modified E92 M3 and would love to see a Z4MC or Z4MR try and pass me. I would tear him a new ass and have. lol ""

I never did say I didn't like it - just the badging beyond what the car actually is makes it look sort of red neck and actually detracts from all the good stuff he has done.

The only badge I have on the back of mine is the ESS TUNING one - probably should put the M back on and yeah - I would pass you - even without the M

Jokes aside... I like it. Love the color and quad exhaust setup on a non-M.
Are you in SoCal and drive a sedan? If so I think I saw you either on 5 south or 805 south near San Diego a few months ago. All I could do was scratch my head. Nice car otherwise.

It's a little bigger actually, 3" or 3,5"
it's a pipe mounted on the OEM air scoop, and by cutting it sideways, you get a larger surface, producing a ram effect. Of course, I only have a 2.2i engine, so I don't need a big effect. For a larger engine, an RPI scoop would probably be more effective.

No sarcasm at all, I think that's a good idea...I wasted a $120 on an RPI Scoop

I didn't take it as sarcasm ;-)

those scoops probably don't do much, maybe has some effect on an M, but still...

an ess supercharger is really the way to go, but os so expensive...

Really nice car and welcome to ZPOST. I like the way you did your calipers. Where'd you get the decals? Are they heat-resistant? Thanks!

Was a little bored tonight as I was home early from work, so fitted my new multi-functional steering wheel... This just looks soooo much better!! And thank god it works too

Fitting was pretty easy


On the bottom right you can see the bolt that tightens the steering wheel which I almost forgot to put back on

Is it just plug and play with the steering wheel? Or is it much modifications? Nice car anyway

i do like your enthusiasm for joining the zed community

i think the quad setup looks great

your car looks clean, apart from needing a drop and immediate removal of that M badge.
