Cool BoarderPhreak's 2008 BMW Z4 3.0i

Hey, gang. Been hangin' 'round since 2015 - about time for an intro...

Picked up this beauty in 2009 (it's a 2008, built in 2007). Monaco Blue exterior, Oregon Beige interior w/wood trim. Had about 10k on the clock, now 61k.

Mostly stock, but like the sig says - "if you have to replace it, make it better." So I've added the following mods:

- ZHP control arms w/Powerflex bushings
- Rogue Engineering rear shock mounts
- Lemförder front shock mounts
- Bilstein B6 dampers front/rear
- K&N air filter and airbox sticker(!)
- BMW wind deflector (mesh)
- Blacked out license plate frames/caps
- Bosch ICON wipers

Got some more mods on the way:

- Hamann front bumper cover w/fog lights
- Type 108 wheels w/Michelin PS4S tires & spacers
- BMW stubby antenna

Replaced w/stock (or better):

- Battery (overspec)
- Bulbs (various)
- Plugs and coils
- Third brake light (x2)
- Convertible top motor
- Front/rear roundels
- In-cabin microfilter
- Oil filter cap
- DSC/hydro unit (rebuilt)
- Tires (currently running Blizzaks)
- Oil filter housing/valve cover gaskets (pending)

Potential mods I'm considering:

- ESS Tuning supercharger
- BMW 3.0si/330i manifold
- Deleting "3.0i" badging

Regular detailing products used:

- Meguiar's Gold Class Car Wash Shampoo
- Mothers Clay Bar Kit (clay/spray)
- Meguiar's Ultimate Compound
- Meguiar's #9 Swirl Remover 2.0
- Meguiar's #26 Hi-Tech Yellow Wax
- Meguiar's G7516 Endurance Tire Gel

It's not a common Z4 color and a bit underrated, IMO. It's like a darker version of Tanzanite Blue... In the sun it's a subtle metallic blue but in the shade and off angles it's almost black. Just as hard to keep clean. ��

Currently wrangling with FF to get my Hamann bumper through customs... Whee. $150 in duties and $260 for their "fees." I don't think so.
