Bad_Pritt's Black Pearl II - Z4QP 3.0si

Post by Bad_Pritt » Fri Jun 29, 2012 4:05 pm

Hi all,

I have owned 2 Zeds in the past, being a dark Grey 2.5i Roadster and a Black 2.2i Roadster aka "Black Pearl" for which you will find a full history in the next 41 pages. Or the short story in the vids below.

My latest purchase is a black Z4 3.0si Coupé, aka Black Pearl II, for which you can find all details as from page 42 !!

Cheers,
Kris

Bad_Pitt - Welcome to the best forum on the internet for 'all things' relating to Z4's (and more :D)

Pictures of your new toy would be great when you take delivery.

Is it only possible to post pics stored on a website outside of the forum? I can't see a button to add/upload pics :|

Bad_Pritt's Black Pearl II - Z4QP 3.0si

Post by Bad_Pritt » Mon Jul 02, 2012 12:08 pm

In the course of this week the car will finally be ready for delivery! :D

I have asked the Stealer to change the interior: I wasn't fond of the wooden inlay and had it replaced by the OEM grey metal inlays. I also asked to change the gear knob from blak to black/metal grey. Everything looks so much better now!

Can't wait to drive...

After!

Hello and welcome. The cars is certainly transformed with the metal inlays, looks far better than the wooden nautical theme :thumbsup:

Careful with this one - you might experience some light-hearted abuse if you use them too liberally.

Looks nice as it is :thumbsup:

Yes, thought so too... I'm still hesitating. Then again: everyone has the right to have an opinion :P
Tuning in general is never popular with die hard OEM fans anyway :?

The only thing that bothers me a bit, are the tail lights... I have been looking for hours, days, weeks to find a more modern alternative but no tuning parts exist except all red ones or all black ones ... I was hoping to find something a little more original, maybe like the jetta lights or RX-8 lights

I'm hoping to find some inspiration on this forum but so far... :tumbleweed:

Looks great...

Strange spec though... Aero skirts and rear, but not an aero front- which arguably is the best part of the aero kit!!!

Welcome, great looking car, don't forget the Gaptech remote mod, it is a must for a Roadster.
