    Being a recent new member, I mentioned last week that I would provide some photos and overview of work done to my Z3 over the last 12 months.

    Overview of enhancements:
    Respray - BMW Approved Body Shop
    Eibach Lowering Springs - 30mm Drop
    New Ziti 18" Alloys all round
    Refurbished Door Cards and Centre Console in Black Leather
    New Disc Breaks and Calipers
    New Black Gloss Kidney Grilles
    New Aerial
    Service and Break Pipes Cleaned
    Thorough Clean of Interior, Softop and Wind Deflector.

    Still to do:
    Steering Wheel, Airbag and Slip Ring just purchased secondhand. Will fit next week.

    Thinking about a Body Kit for the Car - undecided - I would welcome comments from members on Z3 Body Kits.

    Looks very nice - I've tidied up the extra copies of the images in your post, but can't fix them being upside down ;)

    Cheers, Gary

    Thank you for removing duplicate photos Gary - cannot understand why some photos were upside down on the upload?

    Love your restoration, it's this sort of work that keeps me motivated with the Zed, it always wants that little bit more, and you just can't resist giving in to the desire of providing

    Yes, very true - I could think of 101 more things to do to mine, but I think you have to draw the line, particularly when you think the car is looking just right.

    great looking car..really nice


    I especially like the anti grav mod...the way it just hangs upside down is impressive;)

    seriously though you have chosen a theme that works really well, with the chrome roll bars going really nicely with the wheels,and the side vents,and that grey is one of my favourite colours for a Z...classy!

    Very nice! Two things I'd never considered that look great in my opinion. The chrome roll bars and a black console looks good with the two tone upholstery which is similar to mine although I have the two tone seats. On the list for much later.

    Car looks great, you mention in your earlier post about the BMW body kit ! My car is very similar colour wise with the body kit fitted.
