Thanks guys, i know is taking for ever.. I really appreciate the feedback/comments. :thumbsup:

Liam, the hood isnt closed in that picture, its actually amazing how well this kit fits together. But it quite difficult to make everything line up properly.

RedUn, Yea , its gonna be wide... the arms i have for the front and rear push the hub out by 12mm, thats no where near enough, though will depend on how the front wheels sit once bolted on. I think ill be loosing most of the headlight as the wheel will probably hit them from behind when turning.. not exactly sure how thats gonna work out, but the whole car is pretty much custom now, chopping the headlights will be no biggie. LOL :thumbsup:

Are ESS selling the VT2 kit for the Z4M again? I tried to buy it directly from ESS a couple of months ago but they were having problems with their suppliers as a consequence of the pandemic. You've linked the E46 M3 VT2 kit, so do you plan to fabricate any parts required to make it compatible with the Zed?

That was a good purchase - I’ll be kicking myself if ESS don’t sell the set up for our cars again.

If you change you mind and want to direct it onward to Sydney, I’ll happily look after it for you!
