    Hi guys.

    Long time!

    Right, change to non run flats and it's really good

    Front and rear discs are now drilled and grooved Brembo, Brembo pads and braided lines so that's felt a lot better

    Got a front splitter which is yet to go on, to combat the high speed front end twitch

    Now suspension, I've made some decisions on what I want, stiffer but not lower. Any ideas?

    Oh also got a quaife lsd on order and waiting to hear from ess about their price on a supercharger......... I may be going mad

    The Eibach springs are supposed to be really good on the Z4. I think they may lower it a bit though. Always difficult trying to find decent quality sport springs that don't lower at the same time...

    Bilstein B6'S if not lowering, B8's if you are with Eibach springs, you can shocks and springs matched together I the B12 kit. Have you thought about H&R anti roll bars before looking at shocks, you may find they make the difference you are looking for, without losing ride comfort.
