    Talking '04 BMW Z4 3.0I SMG, Maldives blue

    Here is the new whip, picked it up a couple of weeks ago. Its a dream on wheels. With the M sport suspension, it handles amazingly well.. I can't put it into words. 100++ around cloverleafs is absolutely ridiculous, yet it still doesn't even push the car in the least, I still have yet to squeal the tires.
    With the 3.0I, its quite a quick car too.











    More pics to come, after the mods get underway

    It has that rare Maldives blue color, with the corresponding dark biege top, and the cream leather interior, along with wood grain trim. HIFI Carver 10 speaker 430watt sound system. Even those two little 6" subs can shake the windows of my garage. Definately something (Sound quality is amazing for a stock car stereo, not many aftermarket components can touch these in terms of sound quality.... and thats after designing and building sound quality stereos for years and years and years)


    This little car just rocks I can't even fathom a Z4M, 335hp engine, M seats, and everything else that makes an "M" what it is, It would make me lose my license in a week flat.

    I couldn't fucking tand the clear tails anymore, I just couldn't do it. While I'm waiting for a pair of 2006 or newer tails to come in, I painted these using this Tamiya Transluscent red (model) paint that I got from PMS hobby craft ($9/for the small can)
    Took about 1 hr to do both including masking off the area around the tails, not including time between coats to wait for drying time.

    Over all I'm extremely happy with the outcome. They both look great, and no blemishes whatsoever on them. I thought I'd have to do some touchups using a Q-tip and some varsol, but no... both were just great.

    16" brakes? Even the Veyrons are a tad smaller than 16" haha.
