Hi and welcome - no newbie advice needed with photos in your first post. :thumbsup:

After 5+ years of 3.0Si ownership I scratched the same upgrade itch in December 2019 - just in time for lockdown. :(

Anyway I'm sure you'll love it - I certainly do!

Well, what a nice bunch!
First impressions are excellent. Very surprised how different it is to the Si tbh - it is proper quick and just has that extra something that I have missed since moving on from TVRs. Needs a stubby though obviously..... :D

Yes, we're a pretty friendly crowd on here.

I know what you mean about how different an M feels to a 3.0Si - is more "raw" the right word? It's certainly more vocal - in a good way!

I imagine you did some research before you bought, but just in case the S54 engines don't like being worked hard until they are fully warmed up. As a precuationary measure I had my crank rod bearing shells replaced last year after 77K miles and half of them were showing copper. :o

And stubbies aren't compulsory - mine has a semi-whippy because it's different!

Welcome mate, very nice! Silver/grey with imola, perfect :thumbsup: .

Z4M's are flawed but also brilliant cars, you need to work to get the best from them, in todays world of instant thrills I love that about them.

Get a Gruppe M/Eventuri intake as these transform the s54 into a raw animal.

Enjoy! :driving:

Yes they should have the M emblem on them. It seems a weird thing to change I reckon.
