Bad_Pritt's Black Pearl II - Z4QP 3.0si

Post by Bad_Pritt » Mon May 21, 2018 12:36 pm

So I've been playing a little with Photoshop te decide what I want to go for when modding met Coupé. I already bought gloss black 224 style wheels, taillight spray (black) and the carbon bootlip. I also have spacers from my previous Zed, for the front wheels. Further on the whishlist: aero side skirts, carbon M performance diffuser, quad pipes with 4 akrapovic (or similar)-look exhaust tips and probably a little more lowering. I'm not sure though which springs to take, as I already have the M-springs: so a little unclear to me how much it will drop with Eibach or H&R springs for example. Anyway, here's a before and after of the rear.

As for the front... I really don't know yet what I want. I like the aero front, but afraid it will make the car look backdated. Really like the Hamann front bumper, but unsure if it will suit the other mods... we'll see where I end up with that, lol. Would also like to change the standard single halo colour by installing led (or other type of bulb). Carly is also on the whishlist for programming of door lock, coming home lights, DRLs... Will be bankrupt soon.

I quite like the ACS4 front lip (but get rid of those lower slats!)

I had my 224s done in gunmetal. They look great when perfectly clean

I had the CSLs before but requires lowering to look good and quite harsh to drive as they are 19 inch. The Zed may become my daily drive. I already have black 224s waiting to be mounted. But hey... wouldn’t be the first time I change my mind, lol.
