Morning All,
Quick message to introduce myself :D
I am lucky new owner of M340's E85 Z4 3.0Si and could not be happier :driving:
It is in Silver Grey with Individual Amarone Leather and only covered 47k.

The car does not want for anything, but currently sits on H&R springs and I would like to put it back on the originals.
Any good indy to recommend to do the job not too far from North London?

Anyway, I hope restrictions will end soon so that I can go for a proper drive and meet fellow Z4 owners!

Absolutely loving that interior. I don't think I've seen a single other amarone / piano black combo so probably very rare indeed. I'd probably look at suplex springs if you want to get the ride height back to normal. Some csl reps and gloss black grill would really finish that off, despite being rather predictable!

Gutted you got there before me, but well done, great car and I would have done the exact same thing with the springs.

Enjoy :driving:

Thanks guys for the warm welcome.
Yes quick sale indeed. When you know what you want and that the car is actually not too far, it would be a shame not to jump on the occasion :D
Anyway, I already started requesting some quotes for the springs change, as I do not want to live in the permanent fear of speed bumps :headbang:

As opposed to when you start enjoying it and you’ll be in permanent fear of speed cops :lol:

Cracking looking car, I hope you enjoy many happy miles in it :driving:

Hi and welcome to the forum, and it's good to see it will still belong to a forum member!

That's a stunning colour combination you have there, especially with Piano Black trim. :thumbsup:

Good luck getting the suspension how you want it - I'll be doing that with mine soon.
