Treated her to a subtle facelift

Post by Pooltee » Fri Jul 31, 2020 10:47 pm

Decided to join others and treated Zara (yes that is the name of the Z4) to a mild face lift. Still not fully sure if I prefer these to the chrome edge ones or not.

Guess I will treat myself to some skinless knuckles tomorrow and find out!

Early midlife crises and so far loving every minute of it!

I think the black grilles will suit most colours but they make black or the dark blue cars look more aggressive.

A last minute bbq with far too much to drink put this project on hold for now. I will hopefully have them fitted this weekend and will post pics up once done.

The more pictures I see, the more I am convinced I made the right choice :thumbsup:

I agree. Saw a VO one on here somewhere with all black and it lost something for me.

You should be struck off the Z4 Forum..a lack of devotion to the cause..having a BBQ AND excessive drinking..most un-becoming! :rofl:
