I didnt put too much thought into my thread so things might be all over the place.

I believe most of the guys in here knows the story of this car. And this car is kind of famous in CA.

not sure if I am doing the right thing....thinking about selling my car since I barely go tracking now. Got a beautiful son and I am a person that do not like to have cars in the garage like a museum.

Purchased this car 4 years ago with about 30k miles from my really close friend who bought it brand new. Car has 56k miles right now. He bought this car because he wanted to build a show car. It was the first interlagos blue with varis splitter / wing, that you can find in some magazines. Since the car was never driven after a while, the car was sold to me.
Since my ownership, I decided to use it mainly for track days. did a lot of testing to find the proper spring rates, tire sizes, brake pads, aero, etc.
Had huge amount of fun in the first 2.5 to 3 years.
I tell everyone the z4m is the most exciting and challenging BMW. I drove many e46 m3, e36 m3, e92 m3 (previous owned), and z4m is by far the best. Love the fact that the z4m is the hardest car to drive fast. Always gave me that worry when going into the pits. no BMW is as nimble as the z4m. Also for some mysterious reason, my car pulls away from every e46 m3. (custom tune from EPIC)

the car is not in SHOW CAR condition. Its a track car, but it still in good condition. I did a ton of maintenance to this car to always keep me alive at the track. Never hesitate to change a part just as precaution. Car was NEVER INTO ACCIDENT.

This car has the record lap in buttonwillow for s54 engines of 1:47.8 as far as i know. someone can correct me if I am wrong.
also my laguna laptime is 1:36.8
This car is SUPER FAST, HANDLES AMAZINGLY and SUPER CAPABLE of doing amazing laptimes.

I will tell the story of this car more in detail if someone is interested.

RAVENOL 10W60 oil and filter changed done every 3 track days or 1000 miles.
inspection 2 done every year. diff, tranny, valve adjustment, spark plugs. some works done by KAIV, who is known in the m3forum community.

TITLE IN HAND.

car weight: 2800lbs.


Mods:
SUSPENSION (all in great condition. did a full suspension inspection 2 months ago at CHEWERKS who only works with suspension stuff and told me nothing had to be changed. Some stuff are newer than others. buyer can ask me.
JRZ RS PRO
GC race camber plates
Hyperco springs 700/650 lbs both 5" without helper spring
GC endlinks
GC rear camber arms
GC rear shock mounts
Hotchkis sway bar in the front and rear
Millway FCAB
Turner RTAB
turner strut bar
AKG diff and subframe solid bushings
AKG engine and trans mounts poly 75D
TURNER inner rear control arm bushing

BRAKES
PFC BBK front and rear.
ENDLESS front pads and PFC08 rear pads.

WHEELS
Titan7 18x10.5 TR10
Apex SM10 18x10
Tires: Federal RSRR 265/35/18

INTERIOR
CAE shifter with OEM DSSR (one of my best mods)
Stack gauges
Braille battery 13lbs.
bride halo seats (driver side only)
OMP steering wheel
driver and passenger side lexan
rear lexan not installed yet. import from england.
NO AC / NO HEATER / NO SPEAKERS / NO AIRBAGS
custom made chassi roll bar done by Mike Cox whos known to be one of the best welder in CA.

POWER MODS
EPIC custom tune with more than 30 pulls on dyno.
Supersprint race headers - SS section 1, 2 with custom muffler to clear custom diffuser.
AFE dry intake.
Bimmerworld thermostat and bypass valve (greatly reduced my oil temps)
CSF Radiator topped with distilled water + water wetter
OEM Diff
Clutchmaster lightweight flywheel
clutchmaster clutch.

AERO / COSMECTIC
Trackspec motorsport hood vents (helps with understeer and temps)
Trackspec front splitter and side skirt extension made in Tegris. got another spare splitter in black color.
Custom diffuser based on fancywide diffuser
rear hatch in CF from FLOSSMAN. NOT INSTALLED YET. got too lazy.
CF roof from Geoff steel. from group buy
Varis front bumper lip - bumper and lip with clear bra.
Aero side SKIRT (last sold in forum for over 2,000). I have non aero one too as spare.
Aeromotions active wing with custom uprights. this cost me an arm and a leg due to the word "CUSTOM" to get this to work, took me a lot of research and time.
APR wing's gourney flap and endplate.
70% of the bottom of the car is covered. Didnt have a chance to work in the middle section once I became a dad.
Front fenders hand cut by a famous time attack builder Ken Tsui.
Rear bumper also hand cut to release the air from the fenders.

I am sure I am forgetting some stuff, but thats about it.
the car doesnt require any maintenance so far. I get oil analysis every oil change, and the engine is solid. you can ask anyone in CA about my car and know that the car is reliable and maintained. I just wish I took care more to keep the car cleaner, but I will be willing to send my car to a detail shop to make it look like a show car.

there are a TON of OEM parts that were replaced new along these years that I will happy to list them.
I will also be willing to remove some parts if buyer wants to lower the price, but until then, no part out guys. thanks

Keep it. Pass it to your son. By the time he knows how to drive there will be no gas engine and no manual transmission.. I felt the same when I had my 1st kid. My wife convinced me to keep a raw car in the family since they will be shuttles by cars that drive themselves and with monthly subscription. it'll be a legacy to pass something like this down..

Wanna sell me the hatch? Still got the shipping box right?



On the other hand, wow what an amazing car!! I've seen this one personally on one of my layovers in LA. Very sorted and amazing build up. Most of the build documented on here and a trophy and medal list that just goes on and on.

Some of that might be Alex's quick hands, but man what a track car. Amazing work, amazing handling and just an amazing car with lots and lots of R&D into it.

If this was in my area I'd s snap it up just for the shear street cred.

Trying to get Alex to hang onto it, amazing car this, and it's fast.

Amazing car for an amazing bloke. Alex is one of those guys who strives for perfection, and you can see it everywhere in his build. Aside from the gay job he has during the day (does he make vibrators?), this guy knows his stuff and he knows this Z4M. I couldn't recommend a car or owner more.

If this does go up for sale, (hoping it doesn't) grab it while you can as there isn't another better sorted track car around, with no expense spared on maintenance and preventative maintenance.

Top bloke and awesome car!!! .
Love your work man, please don't sell.

Wow so sad to see you selling your amazing track car. This will be a steal for anyone looking for a turnkey setup that has been EXTENSIVELY developed. Looks like it only needs the cage finished to go racing, too.

Congratulations on your growing family and GLWS!

You did great work on your car, follow you on IG. Hopefully you change your mind! If not, then best of luck with sale.

Fantastic car from a top notch guy. If I were looking for one of the absolute best turnkey builds out there this is what I would've chosen!


On a side note... I hope you keep it Alex...

Simply the most intensive R&D build ever for a track spec Z4M. Active aero! Tons of experimentation and time put into this build.

I hope Alex keeps it for awhile and reconsiders —I've had cars I regret selling to this day—but if not someone could end up with a turnkey car and spend time tracking not fiddling with trial and error.

I had the privilege to drive this car on the track and sold my E92 immediately right after to become a Z owner. Did not want to mess this thread around but my lap time was 1:46:990, so there is an untrue statement here.

Jokes apart, it's sad to see this legend moving away from the group but totally understand the "family business" stage of our lives.
