Definitely interested - depends on price!

Varis is a wee bit busy. Slek looks less functional, but slightly cleaner without the middle vent.

I love the lines of the M hood. That with two functional vents sculpted in to match the lines of the hood, with rain shields, would be a nice starting point imo. Maybe somewhre in between the size of the Slek and Varis hoods ? (likely closer to the Varis hood for functionality).

Definietly form over function, but these need not be mutually exclusive.

I would paint mine body colour on the exterior. Definitely want to preserve windshield washers and oem hood fitment and latches.

Look forward to progress!

Cheers,
Eamonn

That's very close to what I've envisioned. Not over the top and functional but if you add M lines to it, it'll be too busy.

I posted on IG that maybe a hood with a bulge like the E92 M3 or E71 X6M LCI could look nice. I believe there was a few videos online of an Imola red Z4MR with a design like that and it looked good.

The GTS/CS hood is badass but I donít think itíd look good on the E85/86

those hoods with the slide hole in the front center is great IF you modify your whole airflow route that forces the air coming in through your radiators out the top front ala GTR style. Oem doesnt do that. It would be quite hard to do that without major surgery on your car. I think Micheal is the only one whos managed to do this to an extent. Awesome to see more options from Skyer for our car, abosultely awesome

Finally found it. Correction; it's not a Z4M but a non M Z4. Hood is the focus here though!
