Have been thinking about the splitter.. might need to change the splitter a little…

Not sure if I missed it, but are you on OE calipers or a BBK?
if OE black would definitely be my choice.

My bad, I thought you meant the windshield washer nozzles on the hood. I didn't even know the Z4 came with a headlight washer nozzle in the bumper. Is it only the M Coupes that have this?

This one will be nice looking when finished

In my opinion, do not go for orange calipers, that will crash with the red...

IMO orange does not go with red. If you have a bbk I'd go red, blue or yellow. On OE black or dark red that does not pop too much.

This is exiting stuff man!

Keep the updates

Thanks guys..
Yeah pretty exiting for me also, lots of work to go though.. after all this is finished I have an appointment with a race team who will set up the car for me. Camber, toe, and angle of incidence on aero parts. Hmm. Just also happens to be the best alignment joint in town. And they have a road force machine.
Couple of new bits

Looking great! Calipers should be red 99% of the time, and black 1% of the time on a car like yours.

Orange is no good, and yellow makes it look like Ronald McDonald. I went every which way with the color of the Stoptechs on my car, and just wound up with red because it's the best option. Can't wait to see it all done!
