intoflatlines' BMW Z4 M Roadster

Not Golf (or VAG) related, but I made a lot of friends on this board, so I'm sticking around

2006 BMW Z4 M Roadster (E85) - Silbergrau with Imolarot leather - premium package w/nav

Done:
- Custom axleback exhaust
- E46 M ZHP shift knob
- LeatherZ center console armrest
- Apex ARC-8 18x9 ET42 and 18x10 ET25 wheels
- BFGoodrich Rival 245/40/18 and 275/35/18 tires
- hardwire V1 radar detector
- CDV delete
- Camber washers for -2.7* camber up front
- 5mm spacers for front to clear the struts
- Hub extenders
- Corbeau RRS driver's seat
- Schroth 4 point harness with makeshift "harness bar" for autocross use only
- Pagid RS-29 race/endurance brake pads

Plans, in order of importance/likelihood:
- install Corbeau RRS passenger's seat (already have it, won't install until after this season)
- camber plates
- square wheel/tire setup
- front sway bar
- stud conversion
- upgrade transmission mount
- RPI intake scoop
- Euro M3 header/section 2 pipes
- X-pipe
- Tune
- Short shift kit
- coilovers
- swap final drive to E46 M3 spec
- ESS stage 2 supercharger (when I win the lottery)


First meetup with a fellow Z4M owner:












Deleted rear mufflers, added high flow resonators, different tips:




Video of custom axleback exhaust:




5.7.13 - Tuesday Meat:




6.7.13 - Mini photoshoot with G60_Corrado_91 and Trevolutionary. Yes, the photos need to be desaturated a bit:







3.15.14 - Pics of new wheels/tires mounted:

















Car wash and wax:







6/7/14 autocross at Tire Rack test track:



Dyno'd on 6/28/14, 293whp, 228wtq.

Thanks. There was a white one with brown interior for sale when I was looking but it had 65k miles and the front bumper looked like it was a little crooked.
