285's would be more than I require and I plan to stay with the 275's. I'm not tracking this car or I'd have gone with 18's and much lighter tires and wheels.

I guess by the time I put all of my CF parts on...roof,hatch,hood, front 3-d splitter and rear diffuser I'll be more of all show...some go,lol.

I need to find some lowering springs to drop from these Sport springs...anyone have experience ??

Thanks, I hope they hold me for awhile. They certainly are different from what I'm used to.

I beg your pardon ?!!

Just kidding. It is a Stebro stainless box. They came this way. Although I was perplexed as you at first...I've enjoyed not having any soot or exhaust EVER to clean on the rear cover.

They aren't going to be there much longer as I have a dual set-up in the works with special boxed resonator tips.

The M-Stash in carbon fiber looks great! Good contrast against the car.

Genuine BSS LM vs OEM BMW Z4 M style 224

CanŽt still make decision. Which wheel youŽd prefer if weŽre talking about design, look, and fit? One of these IŽd like to sell

OEM BMW Z4 M wheels
  • + looks better on standing car
  • + fits perfectly
  • + Z4 stayes Z4 - style 224 is styling for Z4
  • + quality
  • + looks bigger, like it
  • - heavier
  • - not too exclusive

Genuine BBS LM 18"
  • + looks better in motion
  • + much lighter
  • + slightly stronger
  • + quality and exclusivity
  • - looks sometimes small from different angles
  • - dont fits perfectly - rubbing on front axle - the wheel arch trims are totaly worn through

I feel no driving performance differences between these wheels. On BBS LM I need to stop rubbing, but dont know how :? and lower my car.
I guess it leads to improve car's look Any suggestions? TYIA Here is the Gallery

Well when you say not too exclusive they only came on the 2006-2008 Z4M's and no other BMW's to my knowledge. The car looks good with either wheel. I can't speak to your rubbing issues, did you go with too larger a tire?

Regards

Rubbing only when car drops within agressive driving over the hills. Front Tires are fine, size agrees. This is due to different Offset. But whole wheel is hidden in a fender, no overhang
I should go through topics about this ...

Here I stuck in the middle of 1/2 dozen Vipers and Corvettes. Do you think I made them look bad?


Got the EC-7's with Michelin PSS's installed yesterday and fixing to get a dyno test done. Owner of the shop I am in front of is using my car in his commercial.

A little wider shot to show you just how out numbered I was.

The Viper's rear in the front of the picture has 1100 RWHP with 1400 Peek.

Some bad boys in that toy shop.
