My New Z4m with a ESS Supercharger

I thought I should let my first post be a couple of photos of my new car. It is a Z4M with an ESS supercharger, Bilstein Shocks and AP's all around. It was completed by TGM Sport Racing in Fleet in the Uk about 2000 miles ago and has nearly 52000 miles on it in total.

Unfortunately the previous owner got quite ill so was unable to get the enjoyment that his investment deserved.

It will go away for the winter but I will change the seats and possible remove the cage and reinstate the roof to make it a bit more practical in the UK "summer" Weather. Excuse the size of the photos I have no idea how to make them smaller.......

Wow. that's a first to see a cage on the roadster. Beautiful spec car. Would you mind taking more pictures specifically on how the cage, seats and harnesses? Is the hardtop installed while the cage is in place?

Awesome car and a nice pick up.

Very cool! Do those brakes clear without spacers?

SO awesome!
If the hardtop fits with the roll hoop, do you still wish to remove the roll hoop? If the roll hoop is removed, will you re-install the OEM roll hoops?
Curious as to the seat replacement - are they uncomfortable?

This is an incredible roadster....it must be crazy FAST with the supercharger!

I am not sure on the seats yet. I am going to change them and have been looking at the Lotus Evora seats, specifically these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pair-of-L...IAAOSwk35buy4p as I like the color contrast even had a look at some M2 Coupe seats as they would look good fitted if I could get them to work.

The car originally had Sepang leather but the previous owner changed the door cards with the seats due to them looking tatty. It will sit in the garage over winter so I can decide. I really like the look with the cage the issue being in England as in Seattle in the summer we can have 4 seasons in a day it seems so weekends away or longish trips might be an issue with no hardtop with me....

The Lotus seats are awesome; your UK/Seattle summer weather observation is spot-on....but the benefits of the roll hoop (minus it's weight and increasing the center of gravity) is safety/rigidity/looks; but your supercharged S54 can clearly take care of a little bit of extra weight....it is awesome to enjoy the beautiful Great Pacific Northwest weather in the Red Roadster with the top down....and the convenience of pushing the button and we're out of the elements.

Tell us about the acceleration with the supercharger....
