I read that very few were ordered in A43 green metallic. Sold mine last year to buy a low mileage Z4MR. The green always looked fantastic in the sunshine.

Genuine style 32’s (gen 2 version, concave instead of deep dish). Running staggered in this pic but also have 2 rears so I can run square.

While swapping things out I went with the shorter oe valve stems

Hydraulic fluid for the convertible top. It may not SOUND exciting, but being able to operate the top again under it's own power as opposed to my arm power is a treat. Luckily the motor is strong, just needed more fluid. Next on my list is either:

A) Properly fix the leak.
B) Ghetto fix the leak(Kind of already did that) and trade it in on an E89 which I've been considering for a while now. It's just hard for me to get rid of a super nice paid off car just to get a newer one and car payments again.

We'll see.

Played around with a low profile magnetic phone mount. Initially used windshield mounts but prefer a cleaner look and something closer to the accessory plug. I then tried vent clips which are great if you need it in sight for GPS but obviously gets in the way of ac/heat. So now this...

Dremeled a hole in the hidden HVAC panel and mounted one of those ball socket mounts. It’s really sturdy and allows me to use a 6” charging cord so less clutter. Only downside is it’s more upright than I thought it’d be (so you have to look down for GPS). But I’m ok with this as I just really wanted a convenient phone holder. Plus if I really need GPS I can easily mount it back on the ac vent. When not in use simply fold it down and it’s out of sight

I use those but I stick them up on the dash to the right of the heater controls. (I have also successfully removed one from brushed aluminum trim.) They're very strong assemblies and magnets -- I hang an iPad Mini from them with no problem.

I thought iPhone 11 Pro plus case and metal plate would be too much weight for the adhesive if mounted upside down so I just cut out a hole. If I was mounting right side up I agree it would’ve probably held up.

Quick update - I got the springs, struts, shocks and supporting bits installed over the holiday break. After about 500 miles on the new suspension, I have to say that this car is soooooo much fun to drive. Feels like it's on rails when cornering. I set the Konis to there softest setting, since the Z is now my daily driver. Combined with the new Suplex OEM springs, the ride is not harsh - just tight. It's wonderful.

Complete cooling system overhaul (all 7 hoses excluding the heater hoses, reservoir tank, radiator, thermostat, waterpump, temperature/level sensors, and fresh coolant)
Was really overdue! 13 years old and 145k miles (bet the cooling capabilities of the old radiator unit was subpar due to how dirty and clogged the cooling fins are)


Minor suspension overhaul
Replaced my front lower control arms with new OEM ZHPs also overdue. (One of the balljoints was completely shot, lots of freeplay) and installed Ground Control School Coilovers



Also tryed out the weighted anatomic M shift knob (right). Love it more than the ZHP shift knob (left) its pictured next to!

See I think they look so much better in person, and the grille makes sense. I'm a huge fan of the G07, the car is so damn comfy! Congrats, that's a very nice fleet you got
